        One of my favourites in the area is Fieramosca on Prince Arthur - great Italian food.

        36A Prince Arthur Ave, Toronto, ON M5R1A9, CA

      2. C5 in ROM is one of my favorites. Check it out.

            I do not think the Harbord Room is open for lunch.

            Caren's Wine Bar is also in the area ( Or you could go across the street to Jamie Kennedy's restaurant in the Gardiner Museum.

              Oops. It was late when I wrote that! They are only open for brunch on weekends (or maybe just Sundays).

          2. Bar Mercurio and L'Espresso Mercurio at the corner of St. George and Bloor. Espresso Mercurio has panini and good coffee. Bar Mercurio has pizzas. I have eaten at both and they're competent and not too expensive. I have a client in the area and it's always my lunch or brekkie standby.

            1. Another suggestion -- Jamie Kennedy at the Gardner which is right across Queen's Park Circle from the Museum. It is gorgeous.
