Victorian scullery chic comes to Toronto: Located in a three-story Victorian home in the center of Toronto's Church Wellesley Village, Smith Restaurant features a moody period feel (think antiqued mirrors, wallpaper fragments, tarnished cutlery, distressed Persian rugs).

For more information, go to Smith Restaurant.
