Lunch near AGO

elasticwaistband Aug 21, 2007 02:46 PM

I want to take my daughter to the AGO before it closes until 2008 for the final renovations. I am looking for suggestions for a nice place for lunch within walking distance of the gallery. Anything but Indian or Sushi would be good. Thanks.

      Midi Bistro on McCaul would be nice and special.

        The attaching cafe to AGO, Agora, serves a fantastic lunch, at a good value. I had a really delicious poached salmon last time i was there.
        I also second Bodega and Midi near Baldwin. or head to Queen W for Queen Mother's Cafe.

          From my experience:

          On McCaul at Elm: Midi is wonderful, as is Sage (the latter a bit more casual/cafe).
          On Baldwin: La Bodega or Cafe la Gaffe (ditto).
          On Queen: I thought the Queen Mother Cafe was OK (others have raved though)

          Enjoy the show, and lunch!
