After work drinks and munchies?

Looking for your favorite place to go for a casual meal and drinks with a friend. We're thinking Wednesday, nothing formal, but tasty food and maybe a good wine list? Around 6pm would be easiest. I'd ask about patios, but the weather has been so bad lately that I'm not holding my breath.

Thanks so much!

  1. The Drake or The Beaconsfield across the street. The Drake has two patios (one on the rooftop), a formal dining room and a casual streetside cafe, so you can pick the area that suits your mood and the weather. Small, but good wine list and good cocktails. The Beaconsfield has a very different atmosphere (more of the pubby, dark wood feel) and a more casual bar food menu.

    1. Can you give a hint as to which neighbhorhood? You might get more replies.

        Aha - good point. The "hospital district" (University Avenue at College for one and Dundas for the other) is the starting point.

        Thanks - hadn't thought of that somehow...
