By Cathryn Gagnon and her Dining Divas
This month the Dining Divas experienced Toscana Restaurant and Wine Bar at 3891 Dougall Avenue, in Windsor. When making the reservation, the restaurant was completely booked, but they were able to accommodate us in the redesigned bar area. I actually prefer to sit in the bar area at restaurants; the energetic atmosphere is abuzz, making it a fun setting.
Although it’s a fair size, Toscana is always full. The new bar area now seats about 20, and puts diners face to face with the sushi chef. Stylish round booths surround the comfy bar stools. Our favorite way, for my husband Ed and I to enjoy Toscana, is to reserve a bar stool and share a few of our favorite starters, paired with a bottle of wine.
