TRY A NEW RESTAURANT

In a city with so much to eat, there’s no reason to be hitting up 7 Eleven for another corndog dinner, okay? Try Laissez Faire, one of Toronto’s newest restos. It’s getting wicked reviews, and it’s got a great bar if you want to dabble in a little midweek drink.

Where: 589 King St W

Enjoy your week, Toronto. We love ya.
