What Adrienne Clarkson would eat on a perfect day.
A croissant at Patachou (pictured above)
They are the best croissants outside of Paris. They are perfectly flaky on the outside and super tender on the inside, even the tail ends.
$1.85. 1120 Yonge St., 416-927-1105.
Dim sum at Dynasty
They have such a long dim sum list to choose from, and it’s all very delicious. Also, and this is rare for a Chinese restaurant, the lighting is such that you’re actually happy to be seen in it.
$5–$8 per dish. 69 Yorkville Ave., 416-923-3323.
Spaghetti cacio e pepe at Enoteca Sociale
I think Italian food is the best cuisine in the world because it respects the ingredients so much. Cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper) pasta is so hard to do right, but Enoteca does it. I also love the relaxed feeling, and that it isn’t too noisy.
$13. 1288 Dundas St. W., 416-534-1200.
