We asked our friends at Uptown showrooms where best to eat, drink and discover. Because who knows better than the purveyors of great design?
You should venture Uptown if you’re in need of Yorkdale-level retail therapy followed by a freshly baked ACE baguette.
Word of Mouth
2 “I love Greek food and I think Krystos Modern Greek Cuisine (3200 Dufferin St, Unit #22) has the best in Toronto. The food is always freshly cooked and, so far, my experience with the service has been great!” – Shan Shrestha, Amala
Must-Stop Shopping Spots
3 “Holt Renfrew (Yorkdale Mall, 3401 Dufferin St), regrettably for my wallet. It keeps me going back to see what’s new and fashionable. And Scavolini Toronto (1330 Castlefield Ave) is always a beautiful stop.” – Fabia Sadoch, Palazzetti
4 “I love to wander and dive into stores of all kinds – it inspires my lighting design and opens my mind to new ideas. Stone Tile (1451 Castlefield Ave) is always inspiring with its beautiful selection of textured tiles and cool displays.” – Orly Meyer, AM Studio
Sights Worth Seeing
“One of the buildings that inspires me is the old Hilroy factory (670 Caledonia Rd). The entrance is designed with art deco elements and the entire building has spectacular spaces.” – Orly Meyer, AM Studio
