Niko's Bistro

last night mr. handsome and i met up with our new mexico friends (plus a couple of their friends) back on canadian soil and ate italian.

our dinner date took us to niko's bistro, a cozy italian restaurant in one of my favourite neighbourhoods, kensington. we also had too much wine (okay maybe just the girls did) and calamari for dessert because, well because it's me.  and i love calamari.  and because the calamari is their signature dish and because it's simply delicious.
