Question for Torontonians / fans of Toronto

This question was posted to the wiki recently,  and doesn’t have an answer yet.  I could fill in my favourites, but would love to see reponses from others: 

What are your favorite restaurants (of all cuisines) in the downtown, Eaton Centre and Annex areas of Toronto?

Head over to the wiki to respond now!  (it’s toward the bottom of the page under “questions”).

More to see in Toronto

Several new public spaces have opened in the past little while – you may want to check these out!

The Royal Ontario Museum has recently emerged from a scaffold cocoon for the unveiling of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, a spectacular addition fashioned of steel and glass. Home of the Institute for Contemporary Culture, this sleek, ultra-modern addition is either an architectural achievement or a blight on the historic edifice of the ROM – check it out for yourself!

Irish President Mary MacAleese was on hand to officially open the Toronto Irish Famine Memorial on June 21. I’ve seen the memorial from the water, it’s a moving sight.

The park is a bit hidden; here’s how you get there:

1. From Union Station, take a “509 Exhibition” streetcar to Bathurst Street.

2. At Bathurst & Queens Quay, the street sign for the south side will read Eireann Quay, which is the new name of Bathurst Quay. Walk towards the lake and city centre airport ferry dock.

3. When you reach the lake turn left.

4. The park is at the corner, behind the Canada Malting silos.

Mary Saulig and her social committee are busily compiling a guide to the Toronto, to help you take advantage of the time you have with us. Those who have stories to share, please add your comments below – what sights or experiences are a “do not miss”?

Looking ahead to Day One

First time in Toronto? Why not plan to arrive a little early, and have  a look around. After all, one of the attractions of these meetings is getting to see new places!

 If you find yourself in town a bit early, Toronto’s  neighbourhoods offer a wonderful variety of things to see and do.

In the evening, join us for the opening reception at the Ontario Legislature, in the heart of Queen’s Park. The building has housed the Legislative Assembly of Ontario since 1893, and was previously the site of a lunatic asylum. (Insert your own appropriate political joke here). The grounds are beautiful, and in the fall, the trees will be ablaze with colour.

The University of Toronto is nearby  (photos). Flavelle House, home of the Law School and the Bora Laskin Law Library, is only steps away.

Do you have a favourite spot in Toronto? Share it with us! More neighbourhood profiles will be posted as we get closer to October!
