There are not many things in my life that would label me as a creature of habit. But every year for our wedding anniversary, we make the trek to Toronto and hit up our favourite restaurant.
The Kit Kat is in the heart of Toronto, in walking distance to theatres and concert venues, sports stadiums and all the major hotels. It’s been a busy restaurant for almost 30 years. I remember being a little kid, walking downtown and seeing the Kit Kat sign lit brightly above this tiny venue and of course, I made sure as an adult, that this would become my regular spot.
The Kit Kat Italian Bar and Grill
297 King St. W., Toronto, ON, M5V 1J5
As one would expect from a classic Italian eatery, you’re greeted with traditional red and white checkered linens, energetic pictures of everyone and anyone along the walls, and there is a tree that grows through it in the kitchen. It is a hustle and bustle kind of spot, with athletes, actors, theatre goers and locals indulging in their Italian feasts. It goes from quiet and romantic to a full packed place in 2.5 seconds.
