katbri Dec 3, 2009 07:33 AM

My criteria:

Within a 5-7 minute car ride from Broadview and Gerrard.

No Indian or Sushi.

Under $100 per couple (including a couple of drinks)

Great food of course!

    Globe Bistro is at Danforth and Broadview, though the price point might be pushing it a bit. A little further down the Danforth is Mezes, a Greek tapas place that I find to be a fun place to have dinner, as it has a great bustling vibe.

        You might want to try Batifole, although the reviews have been mixed since Phillipe Coeurdassier left.

          I would go to Table 17 or Batifole. Gio Rana's is good but probably longer than a 5min car ride. Lil Baci is good but not the same quality as the other two (although a lower price point).

            Gio Rana's is at Queen and Leslie, so if it's not 5 minutes, it's less than 7. There is also Tomi Kro just to the west of G R's, , you could probably get away for just under $100. I have not eaten there since Seot 2008, but I bet it's still worth a trip. Lolita's Lust also has good food.

            Pop Bistro at Queen and Broadview serves great food as a reasonable price. Cozy atmosphere.
