Where to celebrate Galentine's Day in Toronto this February

Feb 5 2019, 11:54 pm

What’s Galentine’s Day, you may ask?

The answer comes in the words of Leslie Knope: “Oh, it’s only the best day of the year.”

While February 14 might be the day to celebrate romantic love, February 13 is the day to dedicate to your girl gang. Your squad. Your ladies.

And what better way to celebrate girl power than with fine food, great drinks and a high-vibe atmosphere? Round up your crew and head to one of these spots to ring in G-Day.

A couple of members of your crew on the vegan-train? No fear! Everyone will enjoy the mouthwatering bites at Rosalinda. Fresh kombucha, creative cocktails and tacos so good you won’t miss the meat make for an ideal dinner spot. Most of the plates are made for sharing… including the churros, served with warm chocolate banana caramel.

Whipped ricotta with roasted pears, pizza, pasta, albacore tuna, Miami-style ribs, rapini and sunchoke… there’s a good chance you’re not going to be able to decide what to order. But when you arrive with your ladies, you don’t have to choose. Order a selection and share between a group to get a taste of (almost) everything.
