There are special and very interesting exhibits on these days, The Small Wonders - Gothic boxwood curving, and Mystical Landscapes - Masterpieces from Monet, Van Gogh, etc. very popular with a lot of visitors. It is highly advisable to buy tickets on line to avoid waiting in line at the lobby.

We had seen the show in November but wanted to see it again. There were lots of visitors because it is worth your time. And we stopped at Frank's after for a lovely lunch!

This is one great art gallery with a tremendous collection of miniatures, religious artifacts, classical painting, modernists, a room full of Henry Moore sculpture, rooms of beautiful Canadian art, very well curated international shows. It also boasts beautiful contemplative spaces like the galleria which is gently suspended above Dundas street. The Gehry stairwell is magnificent....

New Years Day, and we decided to get the Annual pass at the AGO. Great thing is, that we can also use it at a few dozen other galleries in North America. We saw many great paintings and works of art at the AGO that day. My favs, as always, were the Lawren Harris works. Thanks, AGO !

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
