CHEERS TO HER

Where Toronto - - EXPLORE -

Mrs. Robinson is not a trib­ute to the Si­mon and Gar­funkel song, but rather to Sugar Hill Records founder Sylvia Robinson, who was dubbed “the mother of hiphop.” The throw­back decor also pays homage to her il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer, with vin­tage speak­ers, tape cas­settes, and stereos adorn­ing part of the restau­rant. There’s live mu­sic on se­lect nights, whether it’s a band or a DJ spin­ning old school hits. A small menu of bar bites like gar­lic tofu ta­cos and jerk chicken pot pie is meant to com­pli­ment the real star, the cock­tails, which boast cheeky names like Wet From the Waist Down, Naked and Fa­mous, and Turn Me Like a Screw. 574 Col­lege St., mrsrobin­son­toronto.com
