Atlas One is a great addition to this Little Italy/Little Portugal north neighbourhood. They offer yummy middle-eastern-inspired food (kebabs, etc.) and drinks. I recommend going for some quiet patio time in the summer. Atlas is a chillaxed street, but Atlas One is just off St. Clair, so you're still near the action. Order wine, and maybe some oysters (which is what I had the last time I was there) and soak in the real Toronto atmosphere. I hear they also offer belly dancing and/or jazz bands on some summer nights, but I have not experienced that. I think of Atlas One as a quiet place, good for dates.
Ultimately, what I love about this little place is that it's a truly local establishment, one that feels very home-grown. Try it now. Or wait until Patio season when you're likely to enjoy it even more.

UPDATE 2013: Atlas One is closed. In place is another place called Statione or something. Oh well.
