Wondering if someone could give me the heads-up on a restaurant/bistro for a quick bite before a concert?
Suggestions/Links most welcome!
There are few places you could try:
Sushi Bar - Queen one door west of Broadview south side
The Citizen - Queen three or four doors east of Broadview north side
Pic Nic Wine Bar - Queen five or six doors east of Broadview south side
I second the recommendations for Table 17, Pic Nic, and Lil Baci.
I don't recommend the new sushi joints on Queen E.
Joy Bistro at Booth.
Or if you prefer something asian and less expensive - than there is a Hanoi 3 Seasons at 1135 Queen St. E - about a 10 minute walk away. And if you're walking that way anyway - Leslie Jones is right near Hanoi 3 Seasons.
1182 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M1L4, CA
884 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M1J3, CA
I should have qualified my post saying that I did have a bad experience at Joy in the past (2007), but after giving it another shot with the new management late this summer my opinion definitely changed. Service was better (but not great :) and the food was way better and more consistent than the last time. Not a bad word from the group I was with.
My last visit to Joy ensured that I will not be going back, no matter how 'decent' the food or convenient the location. The service was beyond awful. An extremely snobby and incompetent waitress who had to exert considerable effort to ignore us to the extent she did is not doing them any favors.
Okay. So NOOOOOOOOOOO to JOY for sure!!!!
