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?

  1. best is 1 blk N of St Clair, about 5 blks in all but excellent food / wine matches possible - called CAVA 416.979.9918. 2nd choice is Brownes Bistro, 2 blks N at 416.924.8132 or possibly Lakes just 2 blks S at 416.966.0185.

      Pastis, almost directly across the street, and very good!!!

        walking up that hill within the Yonge Street wind tunnel in this weather? Brutal.

        1. re: JamieK

          driving but just want near by for convenience sake

      2. Try Capacoccia on Yonge/Balmoral. Great atmosphere, service and food! A neighbourhood fav.

          Any other restaurants you recommend?

          1. re: Edith S

            Others I would recommend in the neighbourhood are CAVA, as suggested by wfs, and Terroni's (Capocaccia is better). If you want a more casual/pub type meal, I recommend Rebel House

        2. Across the road, like Millygirl said, Pastis. Click on the place link for related threads, comments, whatever.

          1158 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4W2L9, CA

          1. Il Sogno at Davisville and Yonge. Not fancy, just great quality, good prices and the owners are often your waiters. Ask for Ross.

            1. 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.
