We check out Gossip on a Friday during the Canadian Nation Exhibition. We had first laid eyes on this great looking restaurant when we were on the CNE grounds going to the event "formerly known as Caribana" parade. We waded through the EX festivities and ended the evening at Gossip.
The great patio was closed due to the dis-assembly that was required for the earlier tornado warnings in Toronto that week (yes I know). Nevertheless Gossip has a beautiful, spacious, and tastefully decorated interior with large window to gaze out of.
There weren't that many people there, because Gossip is usually a corporate destination. Amelia is a warm and gracious manager, and shared some of the details of the operation. The majority of their business comes from private functions that range from Toronto sports leagues to school-teacher functions. Call ahead to make sure the restaurant is available to the general public.
Now on to the food. Gossip has a delicious Spicy Shrimp appetizer that you must sample. As a matter of fact you may want to order several! For mains, we had the Gnocchi with chicken and mushrooms, and Penne with sausage. These were generous portions of well flavored food. The gnocchi was especially outstanding, because we simply couldn't stop eating it even though we were very full.
Gossip's menu changes several times a year according to Amelia, so you may want to go back as often as you can if you find a dish you like.
