A restaurant owner in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (NDG) says he’s facing a $5,000 dollar bill to replace his terrace because he was told by the city that the one he’s had for the past two years is a few centimetres too large.

The permanent terrace outside the Cafe Entre-Deux on Sherbrooke Street West had been previously approved, but Marc Flynn said this year, his permit was rejected.

“We reapplied for the same terrace we had two years in a row, that was fin. We sent the same plans, basically, and this year, we are getting told that it’s three inches too long.”

A popular Mexican restaurant in Ford City is relocating.

When residents of Toronto’s sprawling suburbs want to live large dining high above a cityscape, they usually have to take a trip out of the 905 and into the city centre for one of the many restaurants perched dozens of floors over the downtown core.

That could all change courtesy of a bold new proposal for a residential tower in Brampton’s downtown that would feature a restaurant perched over three-dozen storeys above the suburb’s emerging city centre.

Both David and the novelist Francisco Goldman, another dear friend and longtime Mexico City resident, have waxed poetic over the Mexican cantina—part bar, sometime diner, and always a place to trumpet your joys and submerge your sorrows with the best of friends. The contemporary cantina is more democratic than ever (especially as prices escalate at local bars and restaurants), although as recently as 30 years ago women could still be denied entrance. Cantina Tío Pepe, in the Chinatown neighborhood of Centro, is one of the oldest in Mexico City. David is clearly in
