DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Jack's Bakery, Le Rossignol, Nyood, Oakham House, Phoenix Bakery, Sheraton Banquet Kitchen, The Fat Olive, Toko Bistro

This week on DineSafe, some of Ryerson students' favourite spots have been slapped with yellow cards. While there are obviously more than a few places to eat around campus, a choice Greek take-out spot--The Fat Olive--suddenly became a little less desirable with that shiny new yellow sign in its window. Then there's Oakham House/The Ram in the Rye, which is right on Ryerson's campus and the butt of many students' jokes (turns out the joke is on you, kids). Though the hands-down winner this week is Toko Bistro and Bar--a few paces north of campus and pegged with a total of 10 infractions.

Other notable recipients of conditional passes this week include a Queen East somewhat-new arrival, a favourite spot for Portuguese tarts on Oakwood, and a Toronto name in banquet dining. Turns out there's more than one reason to skip those corporate lunches. Here are some places straddling the DineSafe line this week.
