Our social media client work got trendy this past week when two of our food clients Chef Mark McEwan’s ONE restaurant and Smoque N’ Bones were listed in The Daily Meal‘s post on the best city for HIPSTER food in Toronto. This term has become a widely common buzz word in here in Toronto in the fashion and food scene. From being listed at number 2 on Vogue ‘s trendiest neighbourhoods to having a dedicated HIPSTER page mapping out hotspots locations on Yelp, the subculture is growing into something much bigger, and restaurants are tapping in.
The modern day HIPSTER can be traced back to the 1920’s Dandy known for being well dressed and well educated. As described by the Urban Dictionary “dandy” refers to men who consider themselves to be arbiters of culture and refinement and wit.
Spending their days in local coffee shops or testing out the latest restaurants is common with this crowd. This everyday person values food that is made locally, with organic ingredients and preferably has compostable dishes.
So what makes a restaurant a trendy hot spot for HIPSTERS?
“ONE Restaurant in Toronto attracts stars from around the world” -The Daily Meal. The North American contemporary style restaurant offers a warm atmosphere for their guests, from the artistically curated menu to the low lit swanky interior, this is the place to be.
Other “Must-visit hip eateries include Smoque N’ Bones, Grand Electric and Geraldine as well as the Drake Hotel, where patrons can enjoy a cocktail and listen to some live music” -The Daily Meal.
