30 Things We Love About Toronto This October

3. Medieval Times

1. The wonder of liquid nitrogen ice cream from Colborne Lane prepared tableside.

2. Catching a live performance by the iconic Liza—with a z—Minnelli on October 28.

3. Jousting knights on horseback at Medieval Times.

4. Seeing the city on two wheels with the rental of Bixi Bikes; return them to many conveniently located docking stations in the downtown core.

5. Serpentine sculptures handmade by Native Canadian artists from Eskimo Art Gallery. (more…)

Hot Dining: Oliver & Bonacini’s Latest

Add another jewel to the downtown crown of the Oliver & Bonacini dining empire. The company’s portfolio includes Financial District stalwarts Canoe, Jump and Biff’s Bistro—plus Auberge du Pommier in north Toronto. Now its Oliver & Bonacini Café Grill chain has expanded into a 14,500-square-foot space at the busy intersection of Yonge and Front streets. The casual-chic eatery sports a bar and lounge, a wraparound patio and an airy dining room that’s open daily for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. You’ll want to book a table for all three meals—the better to indulge in eclectic cuisine like rock shrimp linguine ($16.50), pancetta and mushroom pizza ($15.95) and a rack of New Zealand lamb ($29.50).
