Where's the best place to go for Summerlicious near King/Adelaide/Richmond and Spadina? For lunch.

Thanks Chows!

    2. You could give Crush a try as well if they're doing a Summerlicious lunch.

      1. I second Crush.

          1. re: tp24

            I'm thinking of trying Spice Route.....any thoughts?

              Crush......
              I went for dinner on Monday.....(Not the Summerlicious Menu)
              And had a great meal
              Great wine, nice Atmosphere

        2. Tutti Matti's in that area, ... we've tried it several times and loved it, even outside of the 'Licious events.

            Mmm..>Tutti Matti! Will have to give that a go sometime. Crush was unfortunately booked up for lunch and so was Brassaii, but I'll see if my friend wants to try Tutti Matti. Otherwise, Spice Route, it is. I hear they have amazing washrooms!

              Oh my goodness, you're going 'coz of the washrooms.......... how bizarre! What's so good about their washrooms???

              1. re: jennjen18

                hahaha. No.

                I'm not going only because of their washrooms. It was recommended by a couple of friends, but everyone here seems to be recommending Crush - which is fully booked (boo urns). BUT an interesting point is that Spice Route apparently has incredible toilets...so I figure if the food sucks, at least I'd have seen these remarkable loos!
                I'll be sure to capture a photograph if I can without seeming like a pervert.

                  Maybe that's why the lineups for the washroom are always so long.

          2. I too nominate Crush Wine Bar. My friend and I didn't partake in the Summerlicious Menu but they certainly had one. Started with Beet/Goat Cheese terrine as well as Scallops. Both yummy. Found scallops to be overpriced. 2 Scallops/$21. I had the Lamb Saddle on a bed of Rapini w/ some sort of stock/wine sauce. Delicious. Friend had Halibut in a light broth. Very good as well. Good Wine selection.

            1. Crush Crush Crush! The roast beef on the Summerlicious menu kicks serious butt. We had an outstanding meal here about 2 weeks ago,attentive service, great wine. All the Summerlicious crap outs were not in exitence that night at all.

                Wow, it'll have to be CRUSH next time for sure - will have to book early!

                I just got back from Summerlicious at SPICE ROUTE! Wwwooooow....beautiful interior....teeeeeeeeerrible service. O. M. G.
                Washrooms are nice too; but seriously....the bad service really did it. Full review coming soon!

              2. Tutti Matti is very good for summerlicious
