Seven Numbers Returns to Eglinton
I am delighted to report that one of our neighborhood faves Seven Numbers has returned to Eglinton.
From their website...www.seven numbers.com
You can find us at 516 Eglinton Avenue West, between Avenue and Spadina. For the time being, we are unable to serve alcoholic beverages, but please join us for some good home-cooking, Rosa-style! Also, we are unable to accept credit cards or debit at this time. Questions? Call us at 416 322-5183 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We were told on Saturday night that the liquor license is expecetd to be in place by July 17.
The food was pretty good, but they weren't cheap and they surely weren't cheerful.
The last time there I brought candles, a big flashlight, and my Stihl chainsaw hard hat with the earmuffs, all of which I used. I still couldn't wait to get out of the place.
I thought that the owners were rude and insulting to create such an "ambiance"
Feh. I hope it's better than their outpost on the Danforth, which has horribly attitude-laden servers and where I once found an industrial twist tie in my involitini...
Why don't they put prices on their website? I pick restaurants by their menu and their prices. Nothing worse then going out for pasta and seeing that everything is $30+ for pasta and sauce.
Also their website reminds me of East Side Marios. Not really sure why, but that was what first came to mind when I started reading it.
Finally went last night- and I am so happy!
Very simple, traditional Italian "clean" & fresh tasting meal! (nay sayers bewarned to check my other posts!)
Had a fall -off the bone and melt in your mouth marrow osso bucco (in a carrot & red sauce, naturally), lovely (with rosemary- I believe) roasted "sexy" duck, grilled oyster mushrooms, blanched rapini, flourless cake.
Now we got there at 5:42- *just* before the dinner rush, as a line quickly established itself. Normally we're 8 pm or later eaters, so if this is * your* regular dinner time- get there early!
Also had some great martinis-Pomegranate & Espresso- pleasantly (and unusual in TO) alcoholic.
Fantastic, prompt service.
Only complaint is that you can't get 1/2 litre wine. We did have an OK Syrah, and some very nice Shiraz ( sorry can't remember what the brand names were).
Nice to thank momma for dinner on the way out with the new front kitchen- I really would like to sit there and watch her during a meal sometime..
Oh & pricewise- $100 ( not including tip) for 4 drinks, secondi ( we don't order pasta when dining out) veggie sides and dessert & espresso.
