I'll be visiting in a couple weeks during the Grand Prix. My DC has been to the city for this event in the past but isn't much of a hound. We are planning to go to Toqué and Au Pied de Cochon. I'm still doing home work for the trip. We'll be there for five days and staying on Summerhill Ave (still getting a handle on precisely what part of the city I'll be in).
I'm wondering if the city gets ridiculously busy with Grand Prix tourists and if so what restaurants and tourist dining traps should I skip on this particular trip? What should I be sure NOT to miss while there? Anything out of the ordinary happen food-wise during this event? I'd also love some off-the-beaten-path recs for lunch, brunch, and general people watching and beer drinking.
Really excited to get up there!!
