I'll be visting Toronto for about about a week next week, staying at the Renaissance Skydome, and looking for food that exemplifies the city -- from street food to high-end cuisine.
Which are the restaurants that a foodie should absolutely not miss? Places that are really hot and worth the hype? Places that have been there forever and still terrific?
Is there a Toronto "native" food, like deep-dish pizza in Chicago, 5-way chili in Cincinnati or poutine in Montreal? Something that you can only get done right in Toronto? What is it and where's the best?
I'm seeking mainly places readily accessible from my hotel, but I'm willing to travel a bit for something really special.
We're also going to Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake, so recommendations there would be appreciated, too.
Thanks for any suggestions.
