Hg2 : The Hedonist

Rosedale Diner

Dubi ‘El Presidente’ Filar has been running this family business, one of the best upscale diners/restaurants in Toronto, since 1978 and he’s well worth introducing. His exuberant Israeli personality infuses the vibe and flavours to this canteen that serves one of the city’s most affluent residential areas. So loyal are those locals that one ordered delivery to her summer palazzo in Venice. 

And the air-freighted foodstuff she couldn’t go without? Dubi’s signature beef burger in pitta bread with double-fried frites – so lovingly handcrafted, he personally goes to the farm to ‘meet his meat’. With its neon-signed exterior you might be thinking this joint’s just about fast food and formica, but inside it’s all gleaming wood, muted lighting and a sassy cocktail counter. Dubi’s got brunch, lunch and a sophisticated candle-lit dinner well covered.
