Need Help ~ Any Good Non-Asian Restaurant Uptown? (N.St. Clair)

I'm planning to take my family out for holiday dinner (8 of us); originally I want to try Sequel, which seems to have a lot of great reviews, but then they don't open on Sunday. I look up Celestin, which also doesn't open on Sunday, nor Zee Grill.

Any one out there can help?

  1. Try searching Sunday dining threads. Zucca will probably come up quite a bit. Very nice,

    1. Cava, on Yonge just north of St. Clair.

        Thanks Snarf & Phoenikia, I left msgs with Cava for Sunday reservation ~ I hope they can seat 8. Zucca seems really good too (but my parents haven't try tapas)

        Definitelly looking forward to dinner tomorrow. Thanks for the rec!

      2. other great spots include Quince (great ambiance, lots of variety on menu), Five Doors North (bustling italian), Coquine (bustling bistro) and Tabule (middle eastern).

        1. Another good pick is Ferraro 502. (At 502 Eglinton, of course) Excellent, real wood-burning oven pizza, and fantastic bread. Pastas are so-so, but that's not the reason for going. It's all about the 'Za.

            Pizzas ARE the only reason to go to Ferraro. Everything else is mediocre. My favourite "pizza" is their Bruschetta Bosco, which is a freshly made pizza with only mozzarella, topped with a mixed green salad and goat cheese

            Autogrill across the street is a better bet for a well-rounded meal. Their pizza and pasta are good, and they're known for their "Spinello" sandwiches -- sandwiches served in freshly baked pizza dough.

            The best Italian on the Eglinton stretch are Sette Mezzo, just west of Bathurst, and Il Mulino, closer to Allen Rd.

            1. re: Tatai

              Another solid pick is Eden Trattoria on St. Clair (west of Dufferin). Again, with the proper pizzas, but with better pastas. In fact, I take my own family there, even the out-of-towners, and everyone from toddlers to grannies have a good time. Just don't try to get through the door during World Cup. It's open early to late seven days a week.
