Non-Tourist Lunch near Princess of Wales Theatre?
Heading to see a matinee with 3 others tomorrow, and would like to eat lunch somewhere within a 10 minute walk.
Would like to avoid the dreaded strip between John and Spadina, which I have found to be tourist traps.
All suggestions welcome....
Forte and Nota Bene are within a 10 minute walk. I like the food at Forte more than the food I've ordered at Nota Bene, but Nota Bene is more popular with posters on this Board.

Tundra in the Hilton would also be a decent bet.

re: Splendid Wine Snob
I've always had speed of service issues at Crush, I think the worst time was arriving at noon and at 1:30 one of my party had to leave for another meeting, just as his food, a sandwich, nothing complex, arrived so he had them take it back and put it in a go pack. I wouldn't necessarily go there if I had a curtain to make.
in the past I would have recommended Brasaii but I haven't been since the ownership change so I'm not sure.
Yuzu sushi (run by the same folks as Japango but slightly more upscale) is close by, mixed reviews but personally I thought it was decent.
