Late-night dining within walking distance of Yonge/Front intersection?

Hi there, I will be getting into Toronto a bit late this Thursday, plan to go to my hotel (the Meridien) before heading out for food, probably around 10pm. Will I be able to find places to eat nearby that late (meaning places where I won't get rushed out)? Can anyone recommend a good one?

    lots of places open - check out marche at yonge and front in the BCE place or go east to Front and Church area. Many restaurants and bars there.

    have fun and enjoy your visit.

      Thanks! Any idea whether I will need a reservation? I have heard of lines at Marche.

        Probably won't be line up that late.

      A couple of options:

      1. Biff's, just east of Yonge on the North side of Front. They apparently have a "late night menu" from 10pm-11pm, and I'm guessing their bar/lounge section will stay open late enough for you not to be rushed out (but I can't say for sure). www.biffsrestaurant.com

      2. Bouchon, on Wellington (also just east of Yonge) is also supposedly open until midnight.

      Good luck!

        Thanks! I had actually wanted to go to Biff's anyway. Think a reservation is necessary?

          You might call for a reservation---I don't know when the musical "Urinetown" gets out, but it's across the street and could make for an after-theatre crowd.

            I think the Shopsy's down there is also open pretty late. Just head east on Front & you'll see it on the north side of the street.

        For a very relaxed atmosphere I like C'est What - just east of Front and Church. They are open until 2am daily. You can't go wrong with "45 craft brewed beers on tap, fine whiskies from the world over."

          good place, and decent selection of beers too.

          non-food note:
          they're closing the music room, as the lease is expiring, and the landlord is tripling the rent. check the website - if u like this room for music, you can write a letter (as many others have) to help petition.
