The $100 Toronto Dinner
I won a sales contest @ work and was given a prize of $100 in cold, hard cash. It was supposed to be a gift certificate to a certain steakhouse, but I'm 90% vegetarian [the 10% eats fish], so that didn't work. But I would still like to spend the money on dinner tonight
- no Thai or Greek food
- something pescatarian friendly
- close to a subway [the weather stinks out there]
- $100 doesn't have to include wine as we don't drink it - we do drink other alcohol
- I just got back from Montreal, so nothing Montreal-ish
I know it's late notice...but I know Chowhound is full of suggestions @ all hours of the day!
I immediately thought Starfish or Rodney's... although either will require a bit of a schlep from a train station.
Yes, "we" should cover me and my partner. We are located by Lansdowne subway station, but are willing to travel by subway. Normally other forms of TTC or a hearty walk would be okay too, but the weather is a bit unpleasant.
I guess we are somewhat looking for some warm, comforting food and drink!
For comfort food - Queen's Pasta, a block or so west of Runnymede station -
seafood choices on offer at all the above.
Okay so we have decided on Beer Bistro. We have only been there once, about a year and a half ago - but enjoyed it [my partner grew up in Brussels and approved the beer and mussels]. I am feeling up for mussels - he is not.
Can anyone provide any recommendations for their menu? I know he would eat anything on their current menu [no restrictions or preferences really] - but I'm wondering if there is something especially good?
