Where are you staying?  TO is a great city and you’ll have a blast. 

Kensington Market (just west of Spadina and south of College) – on Sundays they have “pedestrian sundays” and close off the area to traffic.  There’s lots of vintage stores and its kinda a “hip” area.

Museums – The ROM (old-school museum) and the Gardiner Museum (ceramics) are across from each other at Bloor/Avenue.  Just north of that is YORKVILLE which used to be “bohemian” (back in the 60s) but is now real upscale boutique-y.  There’s some good pubs there – I personally like the Pilot and Hemingways.

The PUBS – So much fun.  They’re more low-key and less meat-markety than in the States so have fun with that.

Roncesvalles – Eastern European historically but now artsy too.

Danforth – “Greek Town” – check when Taste of the Danforth is

 

Basically, just explore the neighborhoods because there’s so much to see and so much urban flavor.

 

As for food, though, I was never jazzed by it.  I personally love Flip Toss Thai on Harbord west of Spadina, but it’s a hole in the wall thai place, not a sit down dinner.  Susur Lee has a restaurant on King Street which I want to try when I visit for my wedding.
