Etobicoke good eats
I'm going to be moving out to Etobicoke, and am interested in all the good eats there----from fine dining to low key restaurants, to great places to buy groceries.
Off the top of my head, I'm familar with Ma Maison, MacNies Fine Grub, Magoos, the Thai places on Bloor along Royal York, Kaji Sushi, Mama Martinos, Apache Burger, The Cheese Boutique, the fish wholesaler just north of Ikea, to name a few.
Where else do you recommend, folks from Etobicoke? In particular, where's the fine dining?
definately via allegro for fine dining italian.
At royal york and bloor there is Barcelona for tapas, etc..Merlot for french, Just greek for casual greek dining, demetres cafe for waffles and crepes, and green mango has decent, well priced thai. Vibo for italian on that strip as well.
Sounds like you and others have mentioned most of the good restaurants in Etobicoke. I vote Vibo over Via Allegro any day!
For take out Italian I like Lenny's (near SE corner of Dundas and Islington), good pastas and gourmet pizzas. For regular take out pizza, in my mind Milano's is still the best. On Bloor near Six Points Plaza.
Hot Oven Bakery in Cloverdale Mall (East Mall/Dundas) for baked goods or awesome chicken pot pie.
Momo's on Queensway near Royal York is good food with live jazz sometimes.
I personally would avoid Mama Martino's at all costs! Also I grew up in Etobicoke. We only went to Apache burger after a night of drinking. If we were sober we went to Magoo's.
A place (Espresso bakery I think) which I prefer over California Sandwiches for a chicken cutlet sandwich is an Italian bakery along Dundas between Kipling and Burhamthorpe, closer to Burhamthorpe.
For really good French including a great Prix Fixe menu is La Petite France on Bloor near Islington.
There is a GREAT new eat-in bakery/cafe for gourmet sandwiches, great artisan breads and pasteries called Artisano's. On Islington north of Queensway.
Also for hole in the wall but awesome Ukrainian food, Wally's on Dundas near Kipling.
Hope this helps...I've lived in Etobicoke for a while and love all it has to offer.
