The black hoof has had a great history but the new chef James Santon has now taken it over the top. His menu is clever, playful and full of culinary surprises. Highly recommend. Absolutely amazing attention to detail. Great food

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
