Just north of Queen Street West on Ossington Avenue sits Delux. Ranked by Toronto Life Magazine as one of the top ten best new restaurants of 2009, this little French restaurant is a hot ticket in the ever popular Ossington Design and Bar District.
The Chef, Corinna Mozo hails from Montreal and worked at several famous restaurants in Boston before opening up shop in January 2008 in Toronto. Her food is described as rustic French cuisine with an emphasis on simplicity and flavour. I enjoyed my meal with Arlene - nibbling, sipping and wiping our plates clean.
