Resto with good steak for lunch near O'Connor & Coxwell
Hi fellow CH,
I need to take my friend out for lunch on Wed. He likes steak. He can't have long lunch. The resto needs to be within 15 min. drive from O'Connor & Coxwell.
Thanks in advance.
There's a place I've driven by called Ritz near Donlands & O'Connor, that features a sign outside that reads "For those that love t-bone steak!" (and which makes me giggle).
I've never been there before, but just Googled them, and found a positive review from The Star this year: http://www.thestar.com/article/199072
It would only be a 5-minute or so drive from Coxwell and O'Connor.

I can actually recommend the Ritz. Good food and sweet service, extremely cheap, some interesting Filipino specialties, and real milkshakes. But it is a fifties greasy spoon; not a "real" resto. They do have steaks, though I wouldn't order one as my first choice from their menu.
If you want a place with a more relaxing kind of ambiance, you might be happy at Jawny Bakers on O'Connor & St Clair. It's a huge menu with altogether decent (though not great) food.
Hollinger's on Coxwell used to be good years ago, but I have been warned to avoid it nowadays.
Thanks Tara, embee & JamieK for your suggestions.
So far, I favor Jawny Bakers & Tulip. I've been to Tulip before but not J.B. However, I doubt if I can make it to Tulip in 15 min.
I checked the website of J.B. The backyard patio looks interesting. The ambiance is appropiate for our lunch. The menu is quite extensive & they do have steak.
I hope they don't mess up a steak, the place is clean & the service is acceptable.
Any comment is welcome.
