A twenty-four hour layover in Toronto this time. The snow and the little bulb lights in the trees felt like christmas time in February. We used Uber for the first time to let us bring to the Distillery District. Uber is an American multinational mobile ride hail company headquartered in San Francisco and you can use it in fifty eight countries. We went to Cluny Bistro in the Distillery District. The Distillery District is the place to see and be seen. The Distillery features more than seventy ground-floor cultural and retail establishments in the restored red brick and Victorian-era buildings of the renowned Gooderham & Worts whiskey distillery. Cluny Bistro is a delight for your eyes and taste! Surrounded by fascinating custom details, such as cabinets filled with hand-selected antiques and a hand-painted glass wall at the raw bar. We had delicious wine and our waiter was very kind and created a personal customized plate of foie gras for us.
The next day we took the subway to Yorkville. This era is situated near the University buildings and the Royal Ontario Museum. We spoke to a local on the street and he told us that the facade of the Royal Ontario Museum cost two hundred and fifty million Canadian dollars! You can imagine that the Toronto society was not really happy with that fact. Toronto is always under construction but that means the city is moving forward and that is always a good sign ;-)! Yorkville is the place where dogs wear hip designer outfits and colored socks during winter time just like their owners. On Bloor and Bay street you find a lot of high quality shops like Cartier and Prada and in the little streets you see a lot of nice hip stores to buy cloth, home furniture and accessories, coffee shops and upmarket supermarkets. The Royal Ontario Museum is also worth a visit. Not only for its architecture but also for its interesting exhibitions.
