Dinner near AGO?

Looking for a place near the Art Gallery of Ontario, for a quick but nice weeknight dinner. Not interested in fine dining, but want a place with a little ambiance and good food.

  1. I've never been myself but I've heard some good things about the Art Square Cafe.

    I think they've been mentioned on this board and they also have a website.

        Caren's Wine and Cheese Bar might be fun.

        If you're going to AGO, it's under construction so be prepared for that.

          Caren's is lovely, but it's in Yorkville (close to the ROM, but not the AGO).

          Maybe the Queen Mother... cozy atmosphere, reliable food, won't break the bank?

          Baldwin recs are good too.

      2. Head up McCaul to Baldwin and there are a few restaurants there that serve decent food for decent prices. This is a pretty active place during the summertime as everyone is sitting outside on the patios so the street has a little of that ambiance you're looking for. It's kind of an artsy area.
