Organic Steak in Toronto

Can we revisit this 2005 topic which yielded only "Cafe Brussel" which closed soon thereafter? The website is, surprisingly, still "funct" (as opposed to "defunct"...)

I nominate Rosedale Diner (meat from the Healthy Butcher).

The Drake serves Cumbrae Farm skirt steak and Angus Rib Steak

Cowbell has great meat, but the menu changes daily... no guarantees of plain ol' steak...

True also has organic steak and filet mignon on the menu but NO FRITES! What's the point?

Prime Steakhouse (Windsor Arms) USED to have organic, but no longer...

Anyone else?

    Toronto best reasonable priced steaks is The Keg. Organic food is a waste of money. In 70 years you will be as dead as the steak. Sorry in my case maybe 35.

      Cumbrae's beef has never been organic.

        Cumbrae's claim of 'naturally raised with no hormones and antibiotic' is as close as it gets to officially certified as organic?! No?! Sometimes I too am pretty confused! Furthermore, does 'free range' normally guarantee organic?

          Cumbrae's indeed claims to have "naturally raised beef with no hormones". It doesn't claim that the beef is organic, but the beef is mostly grass fed (grain finished), and raised in Southern Ontario, which beats simply having the organic label in my opinion.
