Natalia is driven to find the human element in each new restaurant and bar – the thing that sets them apart from Toronto’s crowded food scene and makes their story worth telling. She has written about style, technology, life and travel for the National Post, Toronto Sun, blogTO and Metro, and contributed to the 2017 edition of the Fodor’s Toronto travel guide. Natalia is also the director of PINK MARKET, Toronto’s LGBTQ art and craft fair, and plays guitar in the band Weak Hands. She enjoys good thrift stores and terrible puns. Look for her next to the cheese plate.
