Eating & Dining


A number of sites give information on Toronto restaurants.

Close to the conference site, Harbord Street is a favourite

Ethnic restaurants: some are in agglomerations.

  • Chinatown (Spadina beginning a few blocks south of college down and then along Dundas. For the adventurous, a newer and larger Chinatown has also sprung up just north of the city in Markham about 25km away)
  • Little Italy (College beginning a few blocks west of Bathurst and running for 5 or 6 blocks)
  • Greektown (Danforth Avenue, beginning a few blocks west of Broadview and running until Pape)
  • Little India (Gerrard St beginning at Logan and running until Coxwell -- a bit rundown but cheap)

You can also find Thai, Spanish, Sushi, Portuguese, Jamaican, Russian, Kosher, Halal, etc.


After a hard day's work, you may need a refreshing beverage. Toronto offers many choices: AllTorontoPubs. Near the conference site, you'll find several choices, including two large pubs suitable for groups
