Recs for dinner before Cirque (Ovo) show?

LovesToEat Oct 1, 2009 07:39 AM

Any recommendations for a good dinner place before the Cirque show in either Leslieville, south Riverdale or Distillery District that have entrees under $15?

    I chose Sukho Thai for that purpose, though it's not in one of the neighbourhoods you're looking for.

      Most of the entrees (but not all) are under $15 at Weezie's on King East just east of Parliament. The food is great. Reservations advised. They don't have a website but here's a fairly recent review -

        Word is that prices have been on the increase at Weezie's - they are now around the $20 mark, just fyi.

          Dang, should have checked this before I headed up...Weezies would have been great! Ended up at the Mill Street Brew pub. I had the mussels, hubby had the ribs with fries. Food was just okay and lukewarm. Service was friendly and brisk. Dinners with 3 beers and tips was $75.00. Place was pretty busy and a line up was forming as we were heading out. Probably wouldn't go back again. A tad too touristy for me.

            Word is wrong. Prices at Weezie's remain very friendly. Fish dishes may hover the 20 mark, but the rest are less.

          For something cheap, quick and tasty - we went to the T&T Supermarket right across the street and grabbed a bunch of sushi and dim sum from their take-out area. We ate it in their food court.
