Summerlicious near King & Spadina?

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

Thanks Chows!

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

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

        1. 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???

                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 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.
