Arta Gallery on The New York Times 36 hours in Toronto.

"The 47 buildings that make up the Distillery Historic District, the oldest dating to the 1850s, would be notable even if nothing was in them — together they make up what’s billed as the largest collection of Victorian industrial architecture in North America. But beginning in the early 2000s, the once-dilapidated former site of the Gooderham & Worts Distillery was resurrected as a 13-acre cultural district. The cobbled lanes are lined with an array of artisans, and the factory buildings host shops (don’t miss Distill, featuring Canadian made jewelry and clothes) and galleries (Arta, Corkin, Thompson Landry) as well as artists’ studios. Worthy dining options include El Catrin, a cavernous modern Mexican cantina with excellent ceviche and a two-story fever dream of a mural by the Mexican street artist Oscar Flores. A truffle (or four) at Soma Chocolatemakermakes a fine chaser."
(Egner, Jeremy publisher from The New York Times)
