Looking for the best Chicago-style pizza? Double D’s is the place to go! When they say deep dish, they mean it. The graffiti decor really sets the mood for an old-school pizza parlour, complete with wooden stools, and traditional hand lettering style. Be prepared to get your hands dirty!

Formerly known as Valdez, Baro is a creative Latin hotspot. Their diverse menu serves dishes & cocktails in a restored 3-storey building with a diverse atmosphere.

Stop by Bodega Henriette for an espresso or a croissant on your commute to work.

Unlike any other, Doma is a French-inspired Korean restaurant located in the heart of Little Italy. Every dish is created using authentic Korean ingredients and fresh, local produce. Their menu, changes monthly, keeping two to three popular dishes from the previous month. Given the level of skill and attention required to create every dish, the $65 tasting menu is an incredible deal and makes for a truly memorable meal. It is no surprise that DOMA has been considered one of Toronto’s Top new restaurants.
