The Swan, one of Toronto’s most famous diners, occupied the same space on Queen Street West for more than 20 years. Now Le Swan has taken over to serve French bistro food alongside diner classics - think charcuterie followed by a tuna melt and steak frites with a side of grilled cheese. The menu here includes both dishes that you’d find in a Grey Poupon commercial and food that feels sort of like time travel, which makes it a little different than just about anywhere else in the city. Just be sure to book a table in advance because it’s small and massively popular.
