When warm weather finally arrives, Torontonians find lots of reasons to stay outside. Alfresco dining is chief among them, and many of the city’s top restaurants happily oblige. The private courtyard at George fills up at lunchtime as eager eaters enjoy the fresh offerings of lauded chef Lorenzo Loseto. Fuzion Resto-Lounge & Garden also has an outdoor urban oasis, with shade and ambience provided by palm fronds and tropical flowers. Or head to Yorkville’s One, where a large street-level patio means you can combine people watching with your fine dining.
