A word of warning: You’ll likely have to wait for a table at Grand Electric. Why? Aside from the fact that it has just 35 seats and doesn’t take reservations, the Parkdale hot spot is owned by two alumni of The Black Hoof, an incredibly popular charcuterie-and-cocktails den that’s become something of a finishing school for Toronto’s coolest young chefs. Now running his own kitchen, chef Colin Tooke doles out eclectic Mexican small plates such as a shrimp tostada, tuna ceviche and a daily selection of tacos. Ever-stuffed with young foodies, the room can get rather boisterous; if you find you’re in need of a social stimulant, the bar is happy to oblige with an impressive selection of premium bourbons.
