Work and life is taking me to many a city over the next month - Toronto was last week, with Atlanta, Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans all to come by mid May. I won’t bore you with all the details, but I will post anything worth sharing during my city hopping!
First up, a few noteworthy restaurants from Toronto. I’ve always heard Toronto has amazing food, but this was the first time I really got to experience it.
Super hip atmosphere in an adorable neighborhood (King West), but most importantly, the Pan-Asian food was fantastic and fun to eat - we did the chef’s tasting menu (Susur himself was there that night). My favorite was their signature dish, the Singapore Slaw (featured above) - dreaming of it ever since! A few other favorites were the salmon ceviche and the Top Chef green curry chicken.
True to its gallery setting, super sleek, minimalist presentation. Beautiful ingredients (blood orange and beet salad - to die for!) and our server was over the top nice and helpful, in true Canadian fashion. We found out about it because our client is getting married there - such a fun venue choice!
Work in progress mood board for an upcoming shoot for a friend’s t-shirt company. The concept isn’t as tight as I’d like yet, but it’s slowly forming. Excited for my first fashion-y shoot, and this gritty, moody style is going to be a real stretch for me.
If you have any other sources of inspiration that might help me out (film scenes, photogs, etc), feel free to send them my way.
