Resto with good steak for lunch near O'Connor & Coxwell
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.
The service is great, friendly but professional. The place is clean. I've never had the steak there, so that is the variable. It's a community/sports team/family oriented place so can get loud on weekends, but a weekday lunch should be fine. Let us know how it goes.
