A friend and I stumbled upon this restaurant one rainy evening in Toronto. We loved the cozy atmosphere, the 'tent' like decor, and the wool blankets lining the long picnic bench communal seating. Big Crow has a distinct style and it's not for everyone...it was...More

Big Crow is an amazing place in Yorkville! Excellent ribs or smoked chicken drums prepared on open grill. Also try the delicious corn cake!

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
