At Upfront Bar and Grill, in the heart of Toronto, guests find the heart of Boston. The eatery beckons thirsty and hungry passersby with its unpretentious, laid-back atmosphere, but also a Beantown theme so compelling Matt Damon made it the setting of his famed Harvard bar quarrel in Good Will Hunting. It was the scene in which his character humbles an arrogant grad student with his knowledge of history. So while guests relive that beloved moment from cinema, they can enjoy cold pitchers of beer and hot baskets of chicken wings. Old vinyl album covers and Boston Red Sox memorabilia line the walls, creating a charming backdrop for sipping frosty brews or devouring a plate of sizzling fajitas. Even big shots ranging from Samuel L. Jackson to Don Cherry have graced the restaurant's barstools, ducking away from paparazzi and their giant nets used to catch stars.
