Must eat in Toronto?

Looking for any and all recommendations - markets, bakeries, bagels, delis, high end, low end, everything in between!

If you've got a way to get around - two great wine regions with fantastic food are Prince Edward County and Niagara-on-the-Lake

Yes to what's been recommended, and a few more.
Fat Pasha (middle eastern food by Anthony Rose, chef-proprietor of a handful of revitalized restaurants in the past few years, including the already mentioned Schmaltz Appetizing).
Scaramouche: great food, white tablecloth dining (in spirit even if no tablecloths that night) and a georgeous view, best at nighttime, from an escarpement down into the lighted city.
If we're adding shops, like *yes) Cheese Boutique, go to Dufflet's (more than one) for cakes & pastries, Kristapson's for great cold-smoked fish, including salmon, Ararat for middle eastern foods.
Gastropubs: Queen & Beaver; Beerbistro.
Top chef cooking out of town, Michael Statlander at Eigensenn Farm, amazing French food in a BYOB farmhouse (2 hours and, as with Michelin, worth the detour and overnight stay in the area).

The Cheese Boutique is pretty amazing if you are into cheese: If you go, get some Oka, my favorite CDN cheese.
