Select from either Greektown or Leslieville, then prepare to be amazed by some of the finest food Toronto has to offer.
In Leslieville, embrace the essence of a community that began as a small village back in the 1800s and has since completely transformed itself into one of Toronto’s hippest new neighborhoods — as well as the headquarters of the city’s burgeoning film industry. Walk along historic Queen Street East, sampling Ontario wines, sustainable seafood, organic artisan breads, homemade shortbread and ice cream and a light lunch at one of the area’s most-popular restaurants. Along the way, learn about Leslieville’s history and culture and how its local citizens helped to shape the city of Toronto as it exists today.
In Greektown, experience the largest Greek neighborhood in North America and one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Toronto — an area bustling with outstanding restaurants, boutiques, shops, markets and cafes. Stroll along Danforth Avenue, home of the annual Taste of the Danforth, Canada’s largest street festival. Sample Shanghai dumplings, Turkish pizza (also known as pide), Greek wine and homemade Greek dishes created from family recipes that have been handed down from one generation to the next. Along the way, hear from some of the locals who helped shape this exciting and growing area.
