14 Restaurants In Toronto To Visit If You're Feeling Under The Weather

It's out with the Halloween spirit and in with the flu season that November is bound to bring. Let's face it, October = Halloween while December = Christmas/NYE... but if we're being real here there's really nothing to look forward to this November except for the Gilmore Girls series revival and the ever dreaded flu season. Oh yeah, you know what I'm talking about and I'm pretty sure a few of you reading this are congested in bed trying to hang on with every ounce of strength you have to keep your eyes open. Trust me, I'm on the verge of getting there and it is not fun.

But to help lift everyone's spirits, here are a few restaurants to comfort your poor souls with some classic comfort foods to ease whatever illness you are fighting. Just because you're sick, doesn't mean you don't deserve to go out and enjoy some good food!
