lunch near U. of Toronto?

Coming in for a day to the University from the US. I'd like recommendations for a quick lunch and for a nicer, leisurely lunch since I don't know how much time I'll have or not. Asian cuisine would be ideal but I'd go for virtually anything (except omelettes).

  1. Hart House Gallery Grill on King's College Circle is your best bet. If you're in the mood for Asian, try Lai Wah Heen at the Metropolitan Hotel on Chestnut Street (Dundas and University). It's a little pricey, but you can't find much better quality as far as Chinese food goes.

    1. I second the Gallery Grill for the nice lunch. It's right on the U of T campus, you'll need a reservation. Here's some more info -

      Also, Jamie Kennedy Gardiner is another possiblity for a nice lunch, just north of U of T on University Ave, across from the ROM --

      1. check out baldwin st. just south of the campus there are a lot of restaurants there

        1. I would just walk to chinatown and get a great meal there....

          1. I'll second the Gallery Gril...a pit on the pricey siode, but located right on the gorunds of the university in Hart House. A reall beautiful little restaurant. Try the artichoke and preserved lemon soup if it's available.
