797 College Street, Toronto, ON 1C6 M6G
Bar Isabel is the place I had my first dinner out-out in Toronto since I moved back. We ended up choosing the place because it was highly praised by so many – bloggers, journalists and Yelpers alike. Since the opening of The Black Hoof, an explosion of chefs from there have ventured into their own successful restaurants. (Grand Electric, Electric Mud, Bar Isabel etc.)
Chef Grant Van Gameren definitely started the “Broken Social Scene” of the young, innovative and passionate Toronto chefs, but this welcome home dinner only made me want to fly to NY, wait in line for two hours and have a bowl of ramen from Totto – extra mushrooms.
