We're going to the Mavis Staples concert at Massey Hall in a week or so and I've been trying to think of a place to meet for dinner beforehand. Any suggestions brothers/sisters?

        Second Linda.

        I'd also recommend George.

        Osteria Ciceri e Tria, although I haven't been myself but there have been positive comments on the board. No website unfortunately.

          Good old tried and true Mercatto comes to mind.

              A short walk away is both Terroni and the Beer Bistro.

                  The bar in the lobby of the Pantages Hotel (around the corner on Victoria) has OK martinis. There is a bar menu but I can't comment on the food.

                    I go to Superior all the time and really love it. The ambience is good, the wine list is amazing and the food is above average (though not perfect). Kind of expensive. I also agree with people on the Beer Bistro, great beers and food, nice little patio off the street..
