BlogTO, It's pretty sad that yet another of your "best of" lists is entirely focused on the Queen/Dundas west area.
Please increase your writers per diem so they may venture outside of their collective comfort zone and explore the rest of the city....you really are missing out on a fantastic city!

It seems that some people do not realize that there is voting for all Best Of articles. BlogTO will take a poll every couple of months with about 10 different categories and TONS of options (minimum 15) underneath. And even an "Other" section where you can add something that might not be there. It is reader voted best of.So vote and you'll have your say. Just like our politics, if you dont vote you dont have a say

It has been said before, but bears repeating; you people really need to surface from Hipsterville for some fresh air now and then. The obsession with Queen/King/Dundas West > Ossington is becoming a bit inbred.

Acadia has an amazing prix fixe menu, as does Yours Truly.

Also, can you people read? Vote.

What about Barque's Sunday night Family style or Hopgood's Fried Chicken meal on Monday ... beats the Local's Monday night any day! The 50% off wines are on already over inflated prices and the food takes FOREVER to arrive.

Libretto's prix fixe has my heart.

I know the lists are voted, and I've participated in the vote myself, but would it hurt BlogTO to mention that this is "user voted" in the intro paragraph? That might cure some of the confusion.

Went there last week, they have stopped offering a prix fix, now there is a chef's tasting menu that will set you back $80.

Food was good though :)
