Turning strangers into new friends and breaking bread around a communal table is one of the latest dining trends gaining momentum here in Toronto.
At both Kultura and Nyood, chef Roger Mooking wants you to break all your mother’s rules by talking to strangers with your mouth full! His eclectic menu of small-plate fusion is perfect for sharing and makes for a great conversation starter. And what better way to never feel alone when visiting a new city?
At the newly re-invented Trios Bistro, locals and tourists get acquainted over contemporary Canadian cuisine.
The Belgian chain Le Pain Quotidien, with its French farmhouse-chic decor, is the perfect setting for a long, rustic harvest table, where yummy mommies can be found sipping lattes and nibbling on buttery pastries.
