David Neinstein, the pitmaster of Roncesvalles smokehouse Barque, names his favourite foodie haunts
Carisma on King East is Italian fine dining in the truest sense, with great service and a superb wine list. The duck raviolini is excellent.
My favourite brunch
I’m not really a breakfast guy, but I like the dim sum at Sky Dragon in the Dragon City mall at Spadina and Dundas. It’s not fancy, but the food is consistently good, and it’s fun.
Oliver Stern, the bartender at the Toronto Temperance Society. I completely trust him with any drink I order.
