Dinner before Raptors game tonight??


A few girls from work are heading to the Raptors game tonight and we wanted to stop for a quick bite to eat somewhere.

Looking to avoid tourist traps and also have some healthy options and a nice glass of wine.

I tried searching the boards, but couldn't find much.

Any recos??

  1. The Wine Bar (formerly Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar) would be a great choice. It's a 5-10 minute walk.

    Also, try searching "ACC" or "Leafs game" to get more threads on the subject.

    1. Rodney's By Bay - fresh oysters, lovely fish and seafood, a glass of wine and a fun atmosphere. I love this place more and more with every visit. And also less than a 10 minute walk when you're done.

        When I go to a Raptors game Rodney's is my go to place as well. Really a great spot.

          I've never been to Rodney's, but it sounds reliable. I always go to Joe Badalli's which is fairly good and is 5 mins from the ACC.

      2. I like reds bistro (first canadian place) before hockey and basketball games. 80 or so wines by the glass, delicious charcuterie platter and my favorite cheese menu in the city.

        Plus... you can get to the ACC underground afterwards.... (great for a chilly night)
