The top 10 new restaurant openings in Toronto for September

New restaurants in Toronto delight with vegan cuisine, dazzle with pasta and tempt with intriguing cocktails, beer and wine. Feast at these fab new spots this fall.

Here are my picks for the top new restaurants that opened in Toronto last month.

From the folks behind now-shuttered Awai comes this new Yonge and Wellesley concept, still doing plant-based tasting menus.
