Restaurants for board members...

I need recommendations for restaurants.

1) Near (walking distance) to Queen and Spadina
2) Near (walking distance) to Jarvis and Gerrard (Ryerson, basically)...or maybe a little further if there's nothing good in the area.

Preferably less than $25/person (ie. $15 entrees). It would be great if it had a private room for around 12 people. Good food and nice atmosphere, but nothing too fancy - it is for our board, so it's made up of both young and older feminist women from South America, Africa, the pacific, etc. Something with good vegetarian options, and something that shows how great Toronto food can be!

Thanks in advance!

  1. for 2) how about Linda, above Salad King. You can reserve a table for 12 - it's much quieter upstairs...

    1. Is your price point for lunch or dinner?

      1. Pickings that fit all of your criteria and are within a reasonable walking distance of your intersections are mighty slim. Private rooms are impossible. If your budget gets any larger, please let me know.

        1) The closest I can think of is Peter Pan.

        2) You might want to take a look at Daio Japanese at 45 Carlton St just east of Yonge, although I think their biggest booth seats 8. The food and service there is terrific.

        1. I haven't been there, just going by my memory of what's in the area but what about Sasi Thai at Jarvis and Gerrard for #2? Location, vegeterian options and price point look to be about right. Their website, alas, is not very helpful. Maybe someone who's been there can better comment on its appropriateness.

          1. If its Lunch...Osgoode Hall...corner of Univ and Queen is great..not unlike The Great Hall at Hart House...I always take notice of how many Women Lawyers are chowing there...I been there when groups have been at tables of 10 or 12....definietly need rez...Miranda

            1. alright, scrap the price point....i've been given a better budget now so anything that isn't totally ridiculous is welcome.

              and scrap location #2....now they want two restaurants near location #1.

              1. You could look into Zoe's Bakery Cafe on King by Brant, they have good food and cater to a few in house boardrooms they have, might be perfect, but they are only open til' 6:30 pm...http://www.zoesbakerycafe.ca

                1. yes, for dinner. one of my colleagues recommended czehoski, so we might go with that...any other thoughts?

                  1. re: allisonjayne

                    No private room (that I can recall) but what about Tutti Matti on Adelaide, just east of Spadina? Or, if tapas is an option, maybe Czehoski's sister restaurant, Coca...

                      Brassaii is nice. You could seat 12 communally quite easily there.
