Help - Restaurants that can accomodate vegans downtown (Scotiabank Theatre)

Meeting a few friends for drinks/dinner before a late movie at John and Richmond. Can anyone suggest vegan friendly places in the vicinity. We aren't looking for a vegetarian specific place - just somewhere nice that has a few vegan options or would be flexible enough to accommodate, within a 10-15 minute walk

Was thinking of Thai or Japanese with good veggie options but am wide option to alternatives???

  1. Possibly Fresh at Queen and Spadina?

    1. Fresh was my first thought too.

      Ematei on St. Patrick has a pretty comprehensive izakaya style menu so you might find some suitable vegan options there.

      Vegetarian Haven on Baldwin is probably a 15-20 minutes walk. Fine for vegans, but not good for cocktails (as we discovered last week) since they don't have a liquor license.

      1. For a not specifically vegetarian restaurant, the Queen Mother is very vegetarian/vegan friendly. It's right around the corner on Queen just east of John.

        1. Hosu at Richmond and John

          1. i would go to Queen Mother or Hosu like the others suggested. Wouldn't really go to Ematei as it's an authentic Japanese place and a lot of the sauces and pretty much all soups would have Bonito in it. IMO you can probably find a few items for vegetarians but not vegans. Queen Mother or Hosu probably get enough people asking for vegan food that they'd know exactly what to do.
