Lunch in Old Town?
I'm going to be in Old Town this Saturday and would love some recommendations for lunch--all cuisines welcome, but I'm looking for interesting and tasty food--atmosphere not really important.
Oui! So many places to go! If you like chili - the Hard Times Cafe is always tasty. If you want a good beer selection plus good food, try Bilbo Baggins at 208 Queen Street - about a block or so up from the water. If you like sushi or seafood, the Flying Fish on King St. is great. If you like Lebanese, I totally recommend the Pita House at 407 Cameron Street.
Oh - and if you want awesome food with a very cool/eclectic atmosphere to boot, check out the Stardust Restaurant at 608 Montgomery Street. I was very impressed with the food, when I was there about a month ago.
100 King is good for Mediterranean flavors. Agree that Bilbo Baggins is no longer worth the time & money.
100 King has changed thier menu and there is very little Mediteranean, rather some French influence from the new chef. The change has not brought good reviews. It's a shame because they started off pretty good.
I'll throw out Vermillion on King St. for hip american: http://www.vermilionrestaurant.com/
