"One of the best places" for an "excellent selection" of "super-fresh" oysters, this "small" West Queen West diner also satisfies with other "gourmet seafood" selections in an "unpretentious", "relaxed" space; it's "nothing fancy", but a "comfortable vibe", "helpful" staffers and prices that "aren't wallet-gouging" further make it "recommended" for a "night out with friends."

Great crab cakes, great... more

Fusion hot spots beware. Mediterranean mainstays move over. Gourmet pizzerias step aside. In a city inundated with wannabe bistros, noodle houses and trattorias, could our collective appetite for restaurants that look closer to home for inspiration be worthy of a trend?
That’s what Oyster Boy, the latest new hot spot to appear on Queen West’s new restaurant row, is hoping. But don’t expect to... more
