Pre-show Dinner Yonge & Eglinton

Not sure if it's been posted lately - I searched, yet came up with nothing.

Looking for Pre-show dinner for two at Yonge and Eglinton for approx. $100. Something a little different would be good. Not into a typical Italian or Steak restaurant. Any suggestions?

  1. Jaipur Grille is good - high-end Indian: http://www.jaipurgrille.sites.toronto...

    Zucca Trattoria is Italian, but anything but ordinary:

    Friends of mine have been raving about Quince, which just opened a couple of weeks ago. The chef is Dutch, and cooks with a strong Indonesian influence:

      Second the recommendation of Zucca for interesting Italian.

      Sorn Thai, Tabule(Middle-eastern), or Cha Liu(dim sum served in the evening, as well as during lunch) are other decent options located nearby.

      There's also a Greek restaurant that recently opened a few blocks north of Davisville.Can't recall the name of the Greek restaurant right now, and haven't tried it out yet.

      1. re: spaetzle

        Third the recommendation for Zucca and second the recommendations for Tabule and Cha Liu. I'd probably lean towards the latter 2 for a pre-theatre meal and head to Zucca when you're making an evening of it.

    2. I'd give Quince a try. The chef-owner and his wife were the owners of Stork on the Roof, which was farther south on Yonge St.

      Stork was a great neighbourhood restaurant with well made, inventive dishes.

      1. I've heard good things about jaipur grill.

        1. I always dine at Green Papaya (about 4 blocks north of Eglinton on the east side of Yonge)... Great Thai food, good quality, but not too pricey either.

          1. La Vecchia is a really good italian restaurant, small and intimate. Just a little pricy but if you're going to the show this means you're not going to have a lot of booze, so you can make it with the budget!
