A Guide to Valentine’s Day Activities
The Best Restaurants for Valentine’s Day in Toronto
Galentine’s at The W Hotel‘s “High Beau-Tea”
90 Bloor Street West
The chicest tea party in town! For a celebration with friends, the W Hotel offers their “High Beau-Tea,” an afternoon tea inspired by the Yorkville neighbourhood. The tea is presented in a tiered custom make-up case and features edible strawberry “lipsticks,” ruby fudge “handbags,” and more. This creative twist on afternoon tea is offered for groups of two or more and can also be paired with bottles of bubbly. If you book for February 13th (the official Galentine’s Day), each guest will be treated with a rose to take home!
“San Valentino” at Sofia Restaurant
99 Yorkville Ave
Love is in the air at Sofia Restaurant! This year, they’re offering their San Valentino four course menu for Valentine’s Day, the perfect way to try out a variety of their menu items while taking in the one-of-a-kind artwork that fills the space. A night out at Sofia is a great opportunity to dress up and celebrate with your friends or loved one, enjoying authentic Italian cuisine while surrounded by the artwork by Banksy, Andy Warhol, and more.
