729 Queen Street East
Quality over quantity is the name of the game at Biga Pies, the newest pizza project from Chef Sean MacDonald of ēst restaurant, which sells only 20 pies per day.

Dishes celebrate the influences of land and sea in the diverse region, including seared bavette steak, duck sausage and braised cod filets. And, there are plenty of pizzas, pastas, and desserts.
522 King Street West
This Greek restaurant that was once on the Danforth has planted new roots on King Street West. With the summer in full swing and people craving a getaway, a visit to Myth might be the next best thing.
