Toronto is little bit obsessed with tacos right now, with full service, hyper designer or hipster restaurants opening every month. Proving that sometimes simple is best, SEVEN LIVES is basically a "barely there" food stall in the middle of...

Let me start off by saying we stayed at this bistro for more than six hours. If that's not a testament to excellent service and delicious food, then I don't know what is. After a super exhausting conference in Toronto last weekend, I was looking...
