When you visit Toronto, you need to know two things: the Ontario capital has more going on than its incredibly exciting politics (thanks Rob Ford!) and there's so much more to eat than all of the maple syrup. Whatever you do, make sure you have a few days set aside for brunching -- TO gives NYC and DC competition for the best brunch city -- so you can try at least six Bloody Caesars, which might as well be the national drink of Ontario. Use the Clamato juice-drinks to wash down the maple-smoked salmon and maple bourbon bacon and shots of maple whiskey. Your only regret will be not staying longer.
And if you want more, head to Thrillist Toronto for hot openings and the rest of our longtime favorites.
