Mr Adams's Recommendations

note

FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND DISH

Grand Electric on Queen Street West, Toronto. Tacos and Bourbon. It shouldn't work but it really, really does.”

note

BEST BAR

Sweaty Betty's at Ossington and Queen in Toronto. Cramped. Dirty. Rude. Perfect.”

VACATION CHOICE

“My family has a small island in Georgian Bay a few hours outside Toronto. Travelled the whole world but have yet to find a place with all the perfect qualities… close enough to run away to, far away enough to breath, and remote enough to lose cellphone signal.”

TOP CITY

“Flip a coin. Los Angeles during the day and Berlin at night. LA is so close to water, mountain and desert so quick adventures are easy to come by. And Berlin… last time I was there a taxi driver served us shots of cheap vodka, sang us an aria and then gave me his business card with a picture of him wearing a clown nose. That was the beginning of the night.”

FAVOURITE HOTEL

The Bowery Hotel in New York. Unpretentious, casual, historic and I love that you can just sit downstairs and be guaranteed an interesting night.”
