birthday help -need a replacement for Pomegranate
I have a birthday dinner coming up this Friday. The plan was to go to Pomegranate, but sadly for us, they're on summer holiday.
So I need to find a replacement. I'd like it to be somewhat similar to Pomegranate. Not necessarily Persian, but something saucy and yummy with lots of vegetarian options and a nice atmosphere. I'm totally drawing a blank here. Any suggestions?
Tempus on Yonge near Maitland is Persian and has a similar menu. More modern decor — bistro-ish and not a tacky take-away like you'd expect.
you can always do Banu. it's more of a vodka bar, so if you want to get drunk it's good, with a bunch of finger food items. less stewy affair than Pomg.
Sheba on College (right beside Pomegranate) has great food and lots of veggie options. Not a fancy place by any means, but the food is delicious!
