Lunch around the Delta Chelsea


Wondering if you all could recommend a nice lunch spot for me to take a business colleague on a non-business lunch, somewhere within 15 minutes walking distance of the Delta Chelsea. Was going to go to Osgoode Hall but it's closed till September - something along those lines would be great.

  1. Either Lai Wah Heen or Hemispheres at the Metropolitan Hotel would be a good choice. Pricier than Osgoode Hall, but good quality.

    Also close by is Salad King, and the "upscale" Linda upstairs.

      Linda isn't open for lunch. And Salad King is shared tables. But great food at both.
      Another good choice would be Matagali (69 Elm St) which serves a mixture of Thai and Indian dishes.

    2. Cooks on 8 at The Bay (old Simpson Tower). Great view. Make sure you make a reservation. Have a good meal.

      1. if you're colleague's a carnivore, you could always hit barberian's.

        1. If you and your friend like Indian food, there's Indian Flavor inside Atrium on the Bay, about 10-15 walk from Delta Chelsea. Nice atmosphere,food is not bad, has vegetarian section as well. Lunch time has mostly office workers.

          There's also a thai restaurant called The One, on Yonge I think east of Gerrard. For lunch they have a thai buffet.

          1. I'm from I'm quite familiar with the area. Salad King is fun, good food and cheap, but it can get really loud-hard to carry a conversation. If you want to go high-end, Bistro 990 (on Bay Street)is not far from the Delta Chelsea. It's a favorite by celebs during the film festival.
