Where can I buy fresh lavendar in TO?

I'd like to buy some fresh lavendar for mixed drinks, but the chain grocery stores don't carry it. Neither does Whole Foods, last I checked. Would the St. Lawrence market have it? I'm sure I've seen it somewhere, but I can't remember where. Maybe it was Fresh & Wild.

what restaurants have kitchen-view tables?

Recently I went to Marben (loved it; they claim to have the best burger in the city and I think they're right) and noticed they have a counter where you have a close-up of the chefs cooking. Are there any other restaurants with tables like that, especially ones that are open to the general pubic for reservations?

What is Toronto's best Sushi?

The best sushi I've had other than Kaji is at Sushi 930 (930 King St W). They get fresh fish flown in from Japan every week (either Thursday or Friday... I forget). They only do take out though. Great uni. They serve tai Japanese style too, where they serve the whole fish cut in half with dandelion and grated ginger. It's only a little more west than Yuzu, which has good sushi but I find hard to take seriously because I ordered aji there once and they served me butterfish or something.
