The Dish Power Rankings: bikinis and beefcakes edition
Cabana Pool Bar attracts the city’s skin set for the long weekend, and Clafouti knocks-off the wildly popular cronut.
2. Bar Isabel (no change)
Four months in, Grant van Gameren’s Little Italy tapas bar is still one of the city’s toughest places to get a table: nothing is available before 10:30 p.m. this weekend.
3. Bellwoods Brewery (no change)
The street-facing patio is the most popular spot on the always-rammed Ossington strip.
4. THR&Co. (no change)
You have to go early to get a table at Cory Vitiello’s new Harbord Street spot: no reservations are open after 5:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
10. Valdez (no change)
Top Chef Canada alum Steve Gonzales’s Latin American restaurant started hot. One month later the buzz is already starting to fade.
Chantecler’s tasting menu is full again: reservations are already booked through September. The Star’s Pataki also discovered, and promptly drooled over, the sloppy veal cutlet sandwich at Boar, the midtown sandwich shop from the owner of the Black Camel.
Dropped off the list: Shoto, The Harbord Room, Actinolite and The Drake Hotel
