Comfortable yet interesting pub/bistro with veg options
I'm looking for a pub/tapas/bistro whatever type of place that will have decent drinks, food, and a comfortable atmosphere. Going with a vegetarian friend and looking to catch up, so somewhere we can hold a conversation would be appreciated. Somewhere downtown, not too upscale or overpriced. A friend had suggested Prohibition (Queen & Broadview) but it seems to have a lot of negative feedback.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Rebel House is good for that and they have vegetarian options: http://www.rebelhouse.ca/
I like Czehoski. edited to add that the veggie burger I had at Czehoski when I was there was one of the best I've ever had - it was divine really - and not healthy at all! It was on a brioche bun and it was covered in a delicious cheese - can't go wrong with that.
Czehoski is good. I also like Utopia, though in the winter, without their patio open, it might get a bit noisy for you to have a conversation (and the tables are pretty close together too). I also like Fire on the East Side, which has some veg options on their menu and a good casual vibe.
