Restaurants around St. Lawrence Market?
I want to take a friend out to a reasonably priced restaurant around her condo, which is located near the St. Lawrence Market. Any cusine will do. I'm not familar with the area, so i need some suggestions.
In addition to Trevor (which is very good, based on my one visit) there are also a number of other decent restaurants within walking distance of the St. Lawrence Market that have received generally positive reviews on here (but of course opinions do vary!)
Colborne Lane - 45 Colbourne, one side-street north of Wellington... they just opened so you could be pretty cutting-edge with a visit there ;)
Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar - 9 Church St., just south of Front
Kultura - 169 King East, near Jarvis
Toba - 243 King East, near Sherbourne
Eggplant - 236 King East, near Jarvis
Beer Bistro - 18 King East, near Victoria
Please pass on the Sultan's Tent. It's an overpriced, mediocre tourist trap.
I enjoyed my dinner at Trevor, though I was miffed with the tempura shrimp -- it was breaded, not battered, so should not have been labeled tempura. But I really loved the cornish hen, served with spaetzle that is pan fried so it gets a bit crisped to go with the chewy. The bits of bacon helped, of course! And the quince turnover with five-spice caramel sauce was the perfect winter dessert.
And to reinforce thenurse's rec below -- yes to "beerbistro", NO, NO, NO to "bier markt".
What do you consider "reasonably priced". Haven't been, but I get the sense that Colborne Lane might be a bit pricey for what you are looking for. I recommend sitting at the bar at JK Wine Bar. Beerbistro is a good option (and about a 10 min walk).
