Smith

12 Nov

Brunch in the village is sacred. In the summer I was introduced to Smith – the sister restaurant to Wish and 7 West Cafe. It is now my go-to brunch spot for those lazy Sunday afternoons.

Atmosphere:

The place is gorgeous! In the summer they have a nice little patio opened in the back that is great for enjoying the sunshine while sipping on a mimosa and gossiping with friends. Inside, I would describe the decor as eclectic, rustic, and chic.

Menu:

I’m a breakfast person and the menu provides everything from belgium waffles to huevos rancheros to classic american breakfasts. More than anything I’m drawn to the menu itself – a full out newspaper! I usually go for an orange pekoe tea with honey, mimosa, and the Smith Breakfast – 2 poached eggs, peameal bacon, home fries, and challah.

How brilliant are these menus?

Service:

As much as I love this place, the service isn’t always the greatest. With the exception of my last visit, I have always ordered their delicious scones. Each time my order has been forgotten. However, they’ve always been kind enough to comp our scones.

Last Friday, the girls and I decided to go to the ROM’s Friday Night Live. The theme was fashion so we made sure to be catwalk ready. I chose this little number that I got for a steal at Urban Outfitters. I kept it simple with minimum jewelry, black shoes, and a candy coloured pink bag.

It has been over a decade since I’ve been to the ROM, so I was very excited to wander around the museum for the first time in over a decade. It’s a really cool concept, every Friday from October 18th to December 6th, the ROM is essentially turning into a club. There’s music, drinks, food, entertainment, and dancing. What more could a girl ask for?

We decided to first explore the museum and sample the food available.

At around 9:30, we were no longer able to explore the museum and gathered on the main floor to check out the band.

Afterwards, we headed over to Guu, where we ordered sashimi, fried chicken, and overpriced soda. Guu had an incredible atmosphere. Everyone was loud and welcoming. The table behind us offered us shots of bamboo wine, which I was surprised was so light and refreshing. We were disappointed how Guu closed so early, but nonetheless we weren’t ready to call it a night.

We made our way down Church St. and got in line for a bar that seemed to be packed. Crews & Tangos is where we ended up. T & V have never been to a gay bar, yet alone a drag show! They were in for a treat! The performer of the evening was hilarious, bitchy, and sure could dance! The girls and I danced the night away until it was time to call it a night and hail a cab home.
