A night view of the Toronto skyline
About the author
Adam McDowell

Writer, editor, sometime travel journalist and self-described glutton Adam McDowell was born in Toronto and lives in Roncesvalles Village. He developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of the city as a local newspaper reporter “many years ago.” He’s handy with lunch recommendations, from the rotis of Rexdale to the Lebanese cuisine of Lawrence Avenue East. Secret Toronto spot: Sneaky Dee’s, near Kensington Market, which he visits “at least once a month for a Tex-Mex brunch—when possible.”
