Need a T.O. restaurant - cool vibe, great food, 4 can eat/drink for $400 or under

I'm a bit tired of our 'usual haunts', as good as they are - Rosebud, Czehoski, Eight Wine Bar, Colborne Lane (when the budget is less of an issue). I miss the Town Grill! Any help appreciated.

  1. Heard some good things about Loire Casual Gourmet, on Harbord. Write up in the globe about it. Good prices, great wine list. Want to check it out myself.

    119 Harbord St, Toronto, ON M5S, CA

    1. re: linguini

      I've been to Loire a few times and have really enjoyed myself, but I'm afraid it may not fit the "cool vibe" requirement.

      jamesm's suggestions (both excellent picks) might be better.

      I have a thing going for Cava right now, so I'll throw that in to the mix.

    2. Harbord Room or Foxleys seem to be in your wheelhouse.

      1. Harbord Room or Torito. Maybe also L'Unita and Delux.

            Second Black Hoof. Effortlessly cool.
            Cowbell (maybe not as cool but totally worth it)
