  1. Which theatre is Phantom at?

    1. The Princess of Wales....Thanks!!!

      1. Unfortunately, the entertainment district is something of a wasteland for really good restaurants. Most of the restaurants along King are mediocre and overpriced. But having said that, if your family isn't made up of ultra fussy chowhounds, Fred's Not Here (which I assume you were referring to) is a decent choice. The menu is huge, with something likely to please each person.

        Let us know if you're willing to go a bit further afield -- say a 15 minute walk or a short cab ride. Your options will open up greatly. And let us know if there any particular cuisines you like or want to avoid (italian, japanese, thai, indian, french, etc.).

        1. You don't indicate price range.

          If you like Italian, try La Fenice. I'm not sure how late they are open on Sunday night, but it is really just a five minute walk from that theatre. The food is quite good. Nothing pretentious, just properly cooked Italian. Price range $11 apps., $18 pastas, $18-$30 mains. The room is also quite comfortable, though the interior design needs updating. (I think they don't want to change it out of respect to the original owner/chef who passed away a few years ago. His original paintings are on the walls.)

          1. Thanks....We really don't want to walk to far....if the weather is poor and we will be in "non-walking shoes" -lol!...I think we are looking for a wide variety on the menu...again good prices...and atmosphere....Do you know anything about Bistro 333? looks good...but can't find a review...and yes it's Fred's not here...sorry! think a little over priced?...seemed that way to me too...but I'm not from T.O so I have NOOO Idea what we should expect to pay for a good dinner...KWIM?...Pasta is an option, but only one of the 4 of us are really "into" going to a pasta house isnt really our first choice...any other suggestions??

              I wouldn't call La Fenice a "pasta house". This is not Olive Garden or Yee Olde Spaghetti Factory. They have an excellent selection of meats and fish. Menu is on their site.

              You'll probably like Fred's Not Here better.
