Bring your appetite when you visit Toronto. Its cultural diversity has spawned one of the most vibrant and eclectic food scenes in the world. Our city boasts an all-star lineup of talents, including Lynn Crawford (Ruby WatchCo), Susur Lee (Lee) and Jamie Kennedy (Gilead Café and Bistro), plus newcomers to the city like Daniel Boulud (Café Boulud, Four Seasons), Jean-Paul Lourdes (Shangri-La Hotel) and David Chang (Momofuku) – to name but a few. You can eat your way around the world in our city’s ethnic neighbourhoods. Sample butter chicken in Little India or grilled souvlaki and saganaki in Greektown. Or nibble through interesting fare with a visit to one of the city’s Chinatowns. Fill up on pasta and pizza served alongside a great espresso in our own Little Italy and Corso Italia.

We offer the following websites to help you navigate the incredible array of restaurants in the city. Keep in mind that lunch service usually runs from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm, and dinner from 5:00 pm onwards.
