Figures (137 Avenue Road) is officially one of my favorite new restaurants in Toronto, and it’s about more than just the food, the style, or the very fun comic book theme.

This week, Rufus Teague hosted a night of BBQ and sampling at Barque on Roncesvalles in Toronto, and they’ve convinced me to try a few new things this BBQ season.
In two weeks, the annual Terroir Symposium will bring 60 of the top hospitality and tourism professionals in North America together for the 12th annual event for sommeliers, chefs, hoteliers, and producers at Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario.
