Prospere Magazine Will Be Back….

As many of you may know, I’m getting married this weekend, so there will be no new posts until Monday, when we will be back to wrap up our final full week under the Prospere Magazine name.  Don’t forget that DelectablyChic! will make its debut on September 1.  We will have the same kind of content […]

Organic, Vegan and FAST!

There’s a small restaurant on Hayden Street which serves organic vegan foods.  Open only during the work week, Camros is one of the few non-sitdown vegan-only restaurants in the city.  At my first ever visit there, I had their three item combo ($10.39 plus tax – can also choose from two or four items) which consisted […]

Bloor Street Market Opens!

The supermarket formerly known as Valu-Mart has reopened as the Bloor Street Market at the Manulife Centre.  Joining other grocery stores in the area such as Pusateri and Longo’s The Market, this new store, which is owned by Loblaws, is probably the largest in the area next to Whole Foods.  Like many other urban-focused grocery […]

Rosedale Diner: Not Your Typical Burger Joint

You know you’re in Rosedale when you see an item on the menu for $117.  At a diner.  OK, it’s not likely anyone has ever ordered the so-called Gourmet Package and the only reason why it’s that pricey is because of the Veuve Cliquot (the actual dish is $17).  Besides, the restaurant is closer to the Summerhill […]

True Restaurant’s Chicken Ballotinne

Prospere Magazine first came across True Restaurant in 2008 when it first opened in Yorkville.  This green and locovore-friendly restaurant has an amazing list of foods, ranging from pastas and pizzas to entrees like the chicken ballotine.  Stuffed with mixed nuts and dried fruit, the chicken is, in addition to the traditional potatoes and vegetables, […]

442 McAdam Goes Compact for Fall 2010

The first thing I noticed about 442 McAdam‘s Fall 2010 collection was its compact sized bags, very different from previous collections.  Though the 100% cowhide is still intact, the smaller size intrigued me as a petite person – though I have a few totes, I prefer smaller bags which are more in proportion for smaller people.  The […]
