Restos Around Summerhill LCBO?
I am going for a tutored tasting at the LCBO.
Can anyone suggest a decent restaurant some where in the area?
Across the road, like Millygirl said, Pastis. Click on the place link for related threads, comments, whatever.
1158 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4W2L9, CA
Il Sogno at Davisville and Yonge. Not fancy, just great quality, good prices and the owners are often your waiters. Ask for Ross.
Pastis is probably the best.
If you want quiet conversation - Browne's Bistro.
If you want hearty food and the best creme brulee in Toronto - Avant Gout.
Lakes is middle-of-the-road - rarely exciting.
Cava is overpriced and very noisy.
Haven't tried Capocaccia or Terroni - but they're about 10-15 minute walk and no on-street parking available nearby. Cava is even further.
Rebel House has gone downhill recently - as has Rosedale Diner which is also close.
Pastis is lovely but closed for the first few weeks of january...so call ahead. The rebel house is a solid pub...lots of variety in beer, and the meatloaf sandwich is yummy.
re: Charles Yu
I'm with Charles Yu on this one. The fish soup and the calves's liver at Pastis make for the city's most wonderful bistro dinner. The wines, though, are rather highly priced, so if you're watching your pennies, stick with the drinkable house wines and you'll get out without too much damage. Lower on the price scale in that neighborhood is Rebel House, which someone above has noted has gone downhill recently, but if it has you'd never know it from the tasty club house sandwich, which is as reliable as ever. Passable wines by the glass, and - as has been mentioned many times before - a good array of Canadian microbrews. Fun atmosphere, with assorted interesting buffoons, braggarts, crabs and out-of-place innocents at the bar.
