Tapas Restaurant
$$$$
“This truly is a Toronto staple... it's a long standing restaurant on College, and this says a lot as College sees a lot of turn over. The food is Spanish inspired, and set in an old-world vibe. If this is your thing, then check this place out! And then walk along College to have a drink after at one of the many bars long the strip.”

BBQ Restaurant
$$
“This place is renowned for its fare; they do one thing well, in many forms (there is even a breakie bbq). Operated by the sole son of a family of Bay Street lawyers, this guy made the right choice to pass up the family biz and instead make his mark in the world of ribs and brisket, etc. Call ahead as there is usually a line up, even though they have now been on Roncy for many years.”
