Here are some new restaurants to check out in neighbourhoods across Toronto.

Beaches

Mira Mira Diner is the newest spot in this neighbourhood to grab a cocktail and bites like dips, snacks, comfort food and desserts.

Bloorcourt

Sicilian and Levantine traditions come together on top of some of the best new pizza pies to come out of this neighbourhood at Levant.

Bloor West Village

Bello Pizza popped up in this area this year in the back of a cafe, and they haven't looked back since. Toppings include oyster mushrooms, black kale, pistachios, honey and fire-roasted peppers.

Those in search of a new restaurant for Turkish breakfast need look no further than Mado Cafe, which also serves lunch, dinner, homemade baklava and Turkish ice cream.

Danforth

One Night Only is the latest go-to pizza joint to open in this area, which started out as a home-based project. They specialize in thin crust 16-inch pizzas.

Danforth East

Wood Owl was opened this year by the people behind The Wren, but this time instead of beer they're focusing on wine in their new hushed, intimate space.

Davenport Village

Fried chicken, brunch and all the other simple pleasures of this world can now be found at Century Park Tavern, housed inside a building that's hundreds of years old.

Dundas West

Vegetarians who are lovers of Itlian food have a new have in Gia, converted from what used to be Ufficio by the same team this year. Pasta is still a major attraction.

East Chinatown

Noodle fans should head to Oji Seichi, which just opened in this neighbourhood. They also do Japanese-inspired sandwiches.

Entertainment District

The same people behind Miku have knocked it out of the park this year with Minami, where the interior design matches the impressiveness of the Japanese menu.

Etobicoke

Vegetarians have a new Indian restaurant to visit in this neighbourhood called The Tale, which serves brunch, curries and fresh breads.

Financial District

The atmosphere of an English pub inspires Rabbit Hole, where you'll find classics like fish and chips, savoury pies, chicken tikka masala and sausage rolls on the menu.

Harbord Village

Piccolo Piano Pizzeria just opened up across the street from its big sister Piano Piano, and serves pizza and other Italian fare in a space that's a little more low-key.

Junction Triangle

Creme brulee and other French food is what's on the menu at La Nectarine, the kitchen presided over by TV-famous chef David Adjey.

King West

Not only the menu but also the stunning space at Vela really shines, with elaborate cocktails to match. They do simple but refined dishes like beef tartare and pasta.

Leslieville

Sushi lovers need to check out Maru, the newest Japanese joint to open in this area. It's not like all the others, though, also incorporating French influences.

Little India

Leela Indian is your new spot for snacks, breads, curries and other fun bites like lasooni cauliflower and eggplant fries. It's a second location for this restaurant that originated in the Junction.

Little Italy

Not long after a French restaurant by the same name opened in this neighbourhood, the same people opened up Bar Pompette in a slightly tighter and more intimate location, with more of a focus on coffee and cocktails.

Mount Pleasant

French-Italian cuisine can now be found at Domaine Mamo, where they serve charcuterie, seafood, pizza and pasta.

Epically Insta-worthy food can now be captured at Hong-Kong-style restaurant Good Luck Cafe. Their massive loaded toasts are especially eye-popping.

Crosley's is new hotspot on this popular strip, serving up an ever-changing menu highlighting high-end ingredients like foie gras, Ontario duck and veal sweetbreads.

Pape Village

Hanamaru has become the place to go when you're looking for quick but quality takeout. The Japanese grocery store offers bento boxes, sushi and hard-to-find snacks.

Parkdale

Ever had a sandwich and though, man, this would be so much better with some cheese dip? If so, your dreams have come true at Hot Dip, where sandwiches are paired with anything from au jus to an alfredo sauce.

Queen West

Try Midori Ramen if you're on the hunt for a new noodle soup spot: they specialize in a creamy chicken broth known as "tori paitan," and also have a vegetarian cauliflower option.
