Where to Eat around The Westin Bristol Place Toronto Airport
Collected by Westin AFAR
The Toronto Airport area is at the crossroads between city and country, lakes and forests, modernity and history. It's the perfect starting point for our journey of discovery and exploration in this diverse, cultural hub on the shores of Lake Ontario.
195 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2L5, Canada
Roncesvalles Street is historically the center of the Polish community in Toronto, though it seems like vintage stores and cocktail bars without much Polish heritage are edging in. One great place to find a bit of Poland is Cafe Polonez. I had a...
224 Wallace Ave, Toronto, ON M6H 1V7, Canada
Just two blocks northwest of Landsdowne station, this clandestine diner is not central but it is a fantastic local spot. Park yourself on the picnic benches patio-side or in a seat in an atmosphere which is as simple as it gets. Though there's...
670 Matheson Blvd W, Mississauga, ON L5R 3T2, Canada
So yes, it’s a chain, but sometimes all you want is a night out that includes some old-school shrimp cocktail, a good crisp wedge salad, and a hearty hunk of well-aged steak with a heaped portion of to-die-for garlic mash. And that is precisely...
1112 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1H9, Canada
Poutini’s House of Poutine is arguably the city’s most popular poutinerie. The Classic variety features thick-cut French fries, savory cheese curds, and thick gravy lovingly served piping hot. Poutini’s is so revered that it has recently become a...
7960 Kipling Ave, Woodbridge, ON L4L 1Z9, Canada
After World War II, a tidal wave of Italians flooded Toronto, creating one of the largest concentrations of those passionate (and food-loving) people outside of Terra Nostra itself. Their children migrated to the suburbs in nearby Woodbridge. That...
200 Queens Plate Dr, Etobicoke, ON M9W 6V1, Canada
I never realized it until recently, but when I eat at the Mandarin Buffet, near Woodbine Race Track, I am actually supporting a local business. Mandarin Buffet started in Brampton around 1979 as a small a la carte restaurant, and that’s where its...
4141 Living Arts Dr, Mississauga, ON L5B 4B8, Canada
A local and worthy entertainment destination is the Living Arts Centre in nearby Mississauga. Opened in 1997, this performance venue is actually a one-stop cultural go-to spot. Hammerson Hall is a concert theater with seating for 1300 and hosts...
5 Carlson Ct, Etobicoke, ON M9W 6A2, Canada
Canadians love cross-border shopping, and this pizza joint satisfies that urge. Named after the iconic American city, the establishment has a killer menu. Think killer burgers, and some of the best ribs you've ever had. Even though it's a...
950 Dixon Rd, Etobicoke, ON M9W 5N4, Canada
The menu at Zachary's is varied and reasonable: seafood, beef, chicken, and a nice looking vegetarian dish. (And a burger that’s downright delicious, judging by the speed with which my neighbor devours his.) Also, other than a relaxing ambiance...
7166 Airport Rd, Mississauga, ON L4T 1E3, Canada
At this unassuming little establishment nestled snugly in an Indian enclave just north of the airport in Malton, the chef gestures toward a hot table where colors are a kaleidoscope, where steam rises as sensuous as that of Bollywood dancers, and...
21 Nashville Rd, Kleinburg, ON L0J 1C0, Canada
For many area visitors, a trip to Kleinburg is a must-do, an excursion complete with a bit of culture and a stroll down a street that time seems to have forgotten. But there’s a caveat here—visiting Kleinburg without doing a meal at the Doctor’s...
2448 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6S 1P8, Canada
When I discovered Earth Bloor West, I could not resist. Fresh Greek salad, cool gazpacho, flavorful risotto, and rich desserts made it a meal to remember. I am glad my city is starting to take the impact of local business seriously. Making a move...
1320 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6K 1L4, Canada
This intimate restaurant has quickly become one of my new favorites. It has all of the marks of an amazing experience: attentive, knowledgeable and friendly staff; simple, yet flavorful dishes; boozy libations and a gorgeous atmosphere (including...
14 Stavebank Rd S, Mississauga, ON L5G 2T1, Canada
When it comes right down to it, there is not a single restaurant that lets patrons get closer to the water than Snug Harbour in Port Credit. A covered patio wraps around the west and north walls of this popular eatery no more than twenty feet from...
1850 Albion Rd #6, Etobicoke, ON M9J 5J2, Canada
From the outside, it could be anything—plastic backlit sign guarding the entrance to a little shop in an industrial strip mall. And, to be fair, the establishment is a factory, though there are two exceptions to the norm: the product is an Indian...
3040 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6P 1Z3, Canada
Located in Toronto's Junction neighborhood, Delight ticks all the right boxes: organic, fair-trade, local, and delicious. The shop is known for its chocolates, but the ice cream is equally noteworthy. As smooth as gossamer, it's the best in the...
299 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2M3, Canada
Barque Smokehouse is a contender for the best barbecue in Toronto (even if it's across the city in Roncesvalles Village). The barbecue sampler for one is a great value at $25. I chose short ribs, beef ribs, and a chicken thigh, all of which were...
