We are taking a vegetarian daughter ( early 20's) out for her Birthday dinner with her 97 yr old grandfather..need a restaurant that would have interesting vegetarian dishes, could be pasta, as well as entrees that would appeal to a fish/meat lover..preferably entree prices low twenties..does anyone have a favourite they would suggest..many thanks!

    hmmm...in that area, to please the vegetarian try green mango at royal york and bloor (thai food).
    There is also Roccos plum tomato on islington south of bloor. Decent but not exceptional, although alot of people I know really enjoy it. I believe they have a vegetarian portion on their menu.
    Just greek is also an option (royal york and bloor). They have nice greek salads, hummus etc, as well as a variety of meaty/potato/bread based dishes. All of the above places are sit down and casual

      Vibo at Royal York and Bloor is what came to mind first.

        I second ViBo. Their eggplant parm is fantastic! And the wine list is great too! Definately my favourite place in the area.
