Mr. Arkham and I are taking an end-of-summer road trip from Washington DC to Toronto the first week of August. We're staying at the Residence Inn downtown and hope to park the car when we get there and not use it again until we leave, but anything on a transit line is fair game.
Food: I know about poutine, but what else does Toronto have that's unique or better than other places? We're especially interested in seafood/sushi, European-style pastry, and dim sum.
Beer: What not-available-in-the-US brands should we keep an eye out for and where are the best places to sample them? Mr. Arkham is a fan of dark stouts, and I like red lagers and fruit lambics. Local is good. Weird is good. Ideally we could find a place with tastings or flights of beer. I know there's a beer festival that weekend, but I'm not really a fan of huge outdoor things like that unless it's really something we shouldn't miss.
Also, extra-super-bonus points for any roadfood recommendations between here and there. Thanks!
