Need recommendations for good rest. 404 & 401 area.
I grew up right in that area and there's not a whole lot of non-chain restaurants or any eating spots that I would call great. If you go a bit further south to Lawrence and the DVP, there's High Street Fish and Chips on Underhill Drive. I think it's safe to say that they serve up some of the best fish and chips in Toronto.
There's a Swiss Chalet on York Mills, just east of Leslie, south side. And across from it there's a large plaza with a St. Louis wing joint.
And lastly, there's the Parkwoods Tavern just a bit east of the 404 on Parkwoods Village Drive (in the plaza where the Food Basics is located). The place is a bit of a dive but they do a very good homeburger.
