The latest news about Ossington Village

Joanne Kates calls the Ossington strip “the hottest restaurant row in town” in her review of Salt this weekend. This follows Gina Mallet coining the term “The Ossington Triangle” when she reviewed Brockton General last month.

In addition to the restaurant reviews, there’s coverage of new crossfit gym Academy of Lions and their program with homeless youths. The Globe and Mail must be sending all their reporters to our neighborhood, because they also have a write-up on Jonathan + Olivia‘s Top Shop.

Last but not least, the city of Toronto ranks neighborhoods by the number of trees living in them, and Dundas and Ossington’s Portugal Village ranked dead last. Better start planting!

    i just discovered your blog and I LOVE it. i have to comment about the “no trees” thing. I live in Little Portugal, and Portuguese ppl do not like trees. In fact, I have recently learned that on my street, there used to be numerous, large, beautiful trees that the Portuguese have all cut down and replaced them with cement front lawns- easier maintenance. And then they proceed to water those cement front lawns and sidewalks as if there were an abundance of water in the world. Perhaps when more non-Portuguese ppl move into the neighbourhoods and start buying property, like me, we can add more green to the ‘hoods. I just removed our cement lawn last year and replaced it with plants and a tree. Hopefully more ppl like me who move in and help to change things for the better- better for our health and the environment!

  • We love everyone in the neighbourhood, and yes, the Portuguese do have different traditions when it comes to trees, but where would we get that awesome bread and those yummy tarts. They provide so much to the neighbourhood. Our Portuguese neighbours have the most awesome front garden too – although i think they are pretty unusual. Personally I hope they don’t move out too quickly because it really is what makes the neighbourhood what it is.
