Lunch Suggestions for Bathurst and Queen

I'm taking my 14 year old niece on her annual birthday outing and we are attending a 4:00 p.m. performance at Theatre Passe Muraille and I need some suggestions for places to go for a late lunch before the performance. This kid is happy with a burger but I would love to introduce her to something more upscale. I haven't been along Queen West in years and I don't know what's there anymore. Any ideas?

      I loked at the menu and it looks like a place I'd love, but not sure about the kid. Thanks, I'll keep it in mind.

        Can't believe that place is still there! If it's the one I'm thinking of, it was in operation 25 years ago when I used to work in the area. I'm thinking this might work. Thanks.

          Yup, it's still there. They just recently changed owners (the old owner's son is now chef) and the orange and white check floor is gone, but the food is the same.

        Johnny Banana on Bathurst two doors north of Queen. Trendy burrito spot, very casual, the 14 year-old will think you're incredibly cool. Noce and Prague? Good food but old people places.
