This restaurant has a large variety of upscale pub grub type food and is right across from the AGO. There are glass windows which open up which are very charming but when it's really hot you might be better off in an air conditioned spot.

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
