In which part of the city do you think a Chowhounder would be happiest?
In terms of grocery stores and specialty shops, my vote is for Bloor West Village. They have several bakeries and delis, quality butchers, a notable fishmonger, as well as excellent produce from several vendors. Even their No Frills is higher quality than most, making it a good stop for cheap non-specialty groceries. I can't think of any other Toronto neighbourhood that has so much in one area. Maybe Kensington, but the quality there can be dubious.
St Lawrence Market is obvious, but I'm thinking more along the lines of businesses that span several blocks.
I ask because I'm about to move and find myself trying to think of what parts of the city would offer the most convenient and high quality food options. BWV really impressed me, but there may be something better out there, so let's hear it.
