Awesome review of @banutoronto in @ypdine by @stephanie.dickison. "Iranian restaurant Banu, one of the longest-standing businesses in the ‘hood – clocking in at 11 years and counting - has evolved over the years as well (buh-bye hookah pipes). But the important foundation has remained: phenomenal food, friendly service, and a bright, modern setting.
The restaurant that launched in 2006, began as an idea that Amir Mohyeddin had at age 11 or 12, when he declared, “We should open a restaurant,” to his mom. Mohyeddin’s parents came to Canada from Iran in 1979. “My Mom always had people over at our house, just for the hell of it,” Amir says. "She would always be cleaning and cooking dinner – sometimes for refugees... The Mohyeddins are here every day - Samira and Salome often venture into the kitchen to help Amir. They have been here for 11 years, while businesses came and went, and Queen West drastically changed to suit the times and crowd. And still, Banu is one of the best restaurants in the city. After all these years. Come and see for yourself." #banu #iranianfood #toronto #yyz #foodie #foodieto #local #community #wqw #westqueenwest #artdistrict #designdistrict

🌱🐝Be part of the Pollinator Paradise in West Queen West! • Welcome to Toronto’s very first bee-friendly streetscape. In partnership with Restorative Landscapes, this WQW community project aims to create an edible, bee-friendly streetscape amidst our thriving urban landscape. Plus, bee hotel will be coming to our neighbourhood very soon! • How does a Pollinator Paradise Work? Our planter beds hold a mix of pollinator, edible, and medicinal plants primarily native to Southwestern Ontario. Feel free to pick some herbs and berries to garnish your salad and soothe a sore, but be sure to help preserve the flowers to aid in pollination–the nectar sources of these plants support declining bee and insect life in our area. • Interested in helping out? With your help, here’s how we’ll continue to grow in 2017: The more community interaction, the better. Stay tuned for this year’s upcoming activities and workshops: • Seed Collection • Bee Hotel Construction Workshop • Learning to Grow Flora in an Urban Landscape • Summer Bee Photo Contest • Learn more/Get involved at: restorativelandscapes.com • Or email us at: web@westqueenwest.ca #WQW #westqueenwest #pollinators #pollinatorparadise #bees #beefriendly #savethebees #toronto #yyz #artdistrict #designdistrict

🌿🎨🐝Thanks for the awesome article, @startuphereto!
"WQW has installed 75 planters to attract pollinators – part of the city’s Bee City initiative. Fifty have been painted by artists, and visitors can use the app to find information about the 12 artists and their works... Toronto’s West Queen West neighbourhood gets a lot of love. Lonely Planet has called it the city’s coolest neighbourhood, Huffington Post readers declared it the No. 1 ‘hood in the country, and Vogue even ranked the creative strip between Bathurst and Gladstone Avenue the second-coolest neighbourhood in the world." • Be sure to check out our planters along #WQW. Plus, #beehotels will be coming very soon! In partnership with Restorative Landscapes, this WQW community project aims to create an edible, bee-friendly streetscape amidst our thriving urban landscape. #westqueenwest #designdistrict #artdistrict #pollinatorparadise #community #local #savethebees #bees #beefriendly #beecity
