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.
I'm from Toronto...so 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.
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.
Either Lai Wah Heen or Hemispheres at the Metropolitan Hotel would be a good choice. Pricier than Osgoode Hall, but good quality. http://www.metropolitan.com/toronto/restaurants.asp
Also close by is Salad King, and the "upscale" Linda upstairs. http://www.saladking.com/
