When we were in Toronto, we took a day trip of sorts to Niagara Falls. It turned out to be more fun than I expected and before it was time to head back to Toronto, we wanted to have dinner first. Since we were only in the area for one day, I wanted our dinner […]

Montreal: Schwartz’s

by gigi on February 3, 2012
