The Dish Power Rankings: Terrence Howard goes for tapas edition
Toronto Life’s weekly roundup of the restaurants with the biggest buzz, the longest lineups and the toughest tables to snag.
Terrence Howard, who’s in town to shoot Best Man Holiday, turned up at a pair of hot Toronto restaurants, while one of the stars of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones partied in Parkdale.
1. Bar Isabel (no change)
In one week, the Little Italy restaurant appeared on Munchies, Vice’s web series about eating snacks with the edgy lifestyle magazine’s favourite chefs; former Blue Jay Jose Canseco asked Grant van Gameren to craft a blue cocktail called the Mayor Canseco; and Buca chef Rob Gentile added some cred to the endless Twitter love-in.
5. Farmhouse Tavern (↓2)
The neighbourhood hot spot is as busy as ever (although it lacked an appearance from the Hustle and Flow star).
7. Edulis (↓3)
There’s only one table for two available between 7-9 pm this month. It’s on Wednesday, May 29.
Honourable Mentions: Dragons Kevin O’Leary, Arlene Dickinson, Jim Treliving, Bruce Croxon and David Chilton went to Crush Wine Bar, while Montreal Canadiens star P.K. Subban showed up at Patria. The Black Hoof’s Jen Agg defined cool: it’s Oddseoul.
Dropped off the list: Hopgood’s Foodliner, Kingyo and Origin Liberty.
