Toronto's most anticipated restaurant openings of 2017 from Grey Gardens to Godspeed

Double D's brings serious Chicago-style deep dish to the new Parkdale: Gerrard Street East

Grey Gardens
First on the list (let there be no patriarchy here), is that restaurant of Jen Agg’s that has seen Torontonians turn shades of, um, grey while waiting for it to open. We just hope that Agg hasn’t turned her back on us now that she’s smitten with her other new spot in Montreal.

Poor Romeo
In case you were unaware, Gerrard and Jones is all set to be the new Parkdale. It’s home to the Maple Leaf Tavern and the super cool (and delish) Pinkerton’s Snack Bar, and stay tuned for the across-the-street ’50s diner coming at you from the Pinkerton lads. It’s gonna be good. 

Double D's
Despite the somewhat questionable moniker, this promises to be another exciting addition to the Gerrard East strip. Until now, Chicago-style deep-dish ’za has been missing from T.O.’s foodscape, but DD’s is all about the Chi-town pies. Prepare to get in queue. 

Godspeed Brewery
More east end news: one of Canada’s top brew masters, Luc “Bim” Lafontaine, is gearing up to open his microbrewery in Little India. The brewpub is gunning for a spring opening, promising a retail space, dining area for 70 and a patio for good measure.

Bowls are another main draw. The Obi Wan Bulgogi ($15) has been the top seller to date. (We’re pretty sure that name has helped steer its path to popularity.) Beginning with a bed of black rice, the meal-in-a-bowl is loaded up with purple cabbage, roasted broccolini and a poached egg.

Legalization could lift mental health stigma and allow the use of CBD oil

Legalization could lift mental health stigma and allow the use of CBD oil

Ideas perpetuated through prohibition have given birth to the “stoner” image and also led to the widespread acceptance that THC, one of the psychoactive components in cannabis, will cause schizophrenia. This notion has kept dozens of researchers from exploring the anti-psychotic potential of cannabidiol (CBD), another cannabis compound that is non-psychoactive and shows promise in treatment of psychosis.

Taste of Iceland returns to the city in full force this year; hosted by Iceland Naturally.

Iceland is full of enchanting natural wonders, beauty and creativity - but if you’ve yet to visit the breathtaking land, fear not, they’re conveniently setting up (temporary) digs in the heart of downtown Toronto with numerous engaging and informative events — many of which are free.
