Toronto's Best Steak Frites

Where say you?

  1. I've had a nice one at Le Papillion, lovely french resto in downtown off Front St.

    1. Early, I presume you are looking for non steak-house Steak Frites - otherwise Barberian's and the other usual suspects would clean up.
      Amongst the bistros:
      On a good day, the steak frites at Le Petit Dejeuner are as good as anywhere.
      La Pallette used to be great but they changed their sauce a few years back.
      Batifole is also good but I don't like the bone marrow taste of the sauce.

        The usual suspects - Barberian's et al - often don't do very good frites, and I think it is much more difficult to do first rate frites than it is to do good steak.
        For that reason I would suggest that Didier and Jamie Kennedy, both of whom make excellent frites, are the best.

          I second Jaime Kennedy! His frites are consistently delish.

            JK's frites are fab... but the OP is looking for steak frites. I've never seen this dish at JK - and it would presumably be a small-plate rendition which might be a rather less satisfying meal than the trad version.

          1. Weezie's on King East has great steak frites.

              I have to second the recommendation for Weezie's. Recently had the same dish at Craft Steak (Tom Colicchio's resto in Las Vegas) and Weezie's was comparable, if not better.
