We have a few guests coming in from out of town and are looking to take them out for a nice lunch on Saturday. Any suggestions for something open in the downtown core? I'm pretty flexible on location - we'll be driving. In terms of cuisine we'd be looking for something fairly basic. Nothing ethnic like Indian or Chinese. I'd be open to either upscale or something casual.... good food is important though.

    I always enjoy the food at Mildred's Temple Kitchen.
    Near King & Dufferin... a little west of "downtown"

      i second Mildred's Temple Kitchen

      since you'll be driving, there's ample parking for it

      Delux and Union on Ossington do lunch (not brunch). Pizzeria Libretto, too.

          The Gallery Grill at Hart House! It doesn't get much more special than that.

            I totally agree with TJ that Gallery Grill is the place to go for a memorable lunch. But unfortunately, it's not open on Saturdays.
