TIFF eats!

I’m wondering where the stars will be dining during TIFF this year… I know the Windsor Arms Hotel will be packed tonight for the Artists for Peace and Justice Awareness Bash…and Demi Moore is likely to be there.

Elephant & Castle

Location: 212 King Street West, Toronto Cost: $50 with tip http://www.elephantcastle.com As far as pub food in the city goes…this place has got to have the blurst (read: worst).

Grazie Ristorante

Location: 2373 Yonge Street, Toronto http://www.grazie.ca Went to Grazie recently for a friend’s birthday dinner.  The place was packed and as is the case with a lot of restaurants in the city, they don’t seat you unless your whole party has arrived, and they don’t take reservations.   We ended up waiting I think a little over a half … Continue reading
