September marks the end of summer – but for Torontonians, it’s the beginning of festival season. Stars flock to the city for the world-renowned Toronto International Film Festival, making celebrity sightings at local dining spots an everyday occurrence. To help diners make sure they find the perfect table during the festival, we’re releasing our list of Toronto’s Most Booked Restaurants During TIFF 2018
This year, TIFF runs from September 6th to 17th, 2018. During that time, Yorkville, King West, Queen West, and the Financial District are ideal locations for those looking to dine out and possibly rub shoulders with celebs.
