Playa Cabana

Playa Cabana was the flagship restaurant of the Mas Playas brand of restaurants, and now there is a new location open at Yonge and St. Clair! If you are looking for authentic, well-cooked Mexican food then look no further. Come for the guacamole, stay for the ceviche del dia. Maybe you’re a taco person, in which case they have nine different kinds to choose from! Burritos galore, huevos rancheros, tostadas and more – you cannot go wrong with anything you order on this menu.


Arthur’s Restaurant

If you are a person that likes all things classic and classy, Arthur’s is the place to be. Arthur’s is a sophisticated North American grill restaurant. It is also a magnificent cocktail bar and rooftop terrace that offers outdoor dining in the vibrant atmosphere of midtown Toronto. Live jazz is often performed at Arthur’s Restaurant. To make an evening truly special, choose to go on an evening when a band is playing; you will not want to miss it!


IQ Food Co

Toast is one of the number one trending dishes in the hottest restaurants right now. Some people may tease how much millennials love their avocado toast, but you have not lived until you have tried IQ Food Co’s! If you are not a toast fan, that is more than okay! IQ Food Co features a large variety of breakfast and lunch items on their menu. There are several varieties of organic oats, chia puddings and delicious hot lunch bowls that will warm you up even on the coldest of days. I also highly recommend their smoothies – great as an on-the-go snack or healthy breakfast!


Capocaccia Trattoria

Heart and soul are found in every single bite of the food served at Capocaccia. Capocaccia redefines the neighbourhood trattoria for a bustling midtown Toronto lifestyle while still keeping the traditions of rustic southern Italian cooking as the star of the show. This heartwarming trattoria is perfect for date nights as well as corporate parties – which is important to start thinking about as the holidays are just around the corner!
