Giles Coren Atlantic

Giles Coren

Toronto's Philosopher Chef

I have to hand it to Toronto: it's the only city in the world where my attempt to grab a quick hot dog has made the evening news. Admittedly, I was grabbing that hot dog outside City Hall in the company of Rob Ford, the world's most infamous serving mayor, but even the slavering press pack should take a lunch break. The mad, challenging, soulful, seriocomic Atlantic was without question the most brain-affecting restaurant I encountered in a joyful, food-filled week in Toronto. An eating place that will not be to everyone's taste, but one which might just save the world.
