There are a lot of fun, lively eateries to be found along Queen Street West. The one that you’ll particularly want to visit on a warm spring day is The County General. Run by the owners of ritzy Splendido, the restaurant offers its predecessor’s thoughtful service and high-quality cooking in a more casual, wallet-friendly package. Here, hip locals fill the bright dining room and street-side patio for lunch, dinner, brunch and late-night nosh including a buttermilk-fried chicken sandwich ($14), pork tacos ($15) and banana bread French toast ($14, brunch only). Choose your drink from the all-Canadian wine list, or go for that Southern vibe with a glass of premium rum or bourbon.
