Foodie visit to TO

nycfoodiee | Aug 16, 2011 08:16 PM

Hello! I am going to TO very soon (by way of NYC) to visit some family and was looking for some dining help while there.

I LOVE food. Some of my favorite meals of all time have been at: Blue Hill Stone barns, Per Se (though found the ambiance a bit to, hmm, "classic", for my taste) Il Buco, and Northern Spy Co (on the more reasonable end). Also, I would really like to eat at The Fat Duck one day. So, I am looking for restaurants in the same vein as the ones above (farm to table, interesting/ experimental execution, fine dining but not stuffy, etc).

I will have time to have 3 diners out, and I am trying to decide between the following (but suggestions welcome!!):

The Black Hoof (do they serve any vegetarian or fish dishes?)
Brockton General
Niagara Street Cafe

I am also having a hard time coming up with 3 brunch/ lunch spots (2 weekend and 1 weekday).

As well, I am thinking of checking out the St. Lawrence Market on a Saturday morning - thoughts?

Finally, there any snack spots/ sweet treat shops that I must check out too??

Thank you in advance for all of your help!!
