25 Best Restaurants in Toronto

“With such an inviting atmosphere, great culture of service, and inventive menu, Avelo is a plant-based restaurant that even carnivores can get behind. Located in a classic Toronto Victorian townhome, this fine yet unpretentious plant-based restaurant embodies everything that’s great about Church-Wellesley Village: it’s fun, it’s of-the-moment, and it proves that new ways of eating can be just as satisfying as the old ways.”

“There’s usually at least one life-altering plate, like a variation on lobster risotto, made with wheat berries instead of rice and, instead of seafood, a slice of grilled lobster mushroom under a blanket of lobster mushroom foam. It was luscious and earthy and incredibly tasty, and could very well convert the most devout carnivore to the cause.”

“Avelo’s tasting menu features adventurous dishes such as lobster mushrooms in a wheat berry risotto with a carrot-lemon foam, and black garlic ice cream drizzled with a chocolate-tamari ganache.”

“Osteria Du posesses a team of cooks that collaborate together. The fact that some are hard-core vegans while others are die-hard carnivores means that flavours and textures are subject to rigorous, yet constructive debate. The result is food that’s good not just because it’s vegan, but because it’s good.”
