Well, some sad news to report. Beirut Palace (the falafel place with the hookahs) is closed. This was my go-to patio in the summertime. Looks like I’ll be checking out some other patios in the neighborhood. So what else is there, you ask? Here’s a list of patios in and around Bloordale:

• Pour Boy (666 Manning) – Pub
• Hurricanes (963 Bloor) – Bar
• Madras Masala (796 Bloor) – Restaurant
• Mexi Taco (828 Bloor) – Restaurant
• Ristorante Roma (1090 Bloor) – Restaurant
