Dine Around the Danforth... anything worthwhile?

As more and more BIAs jump on the "festival" bandwagon, I'm finding it harder to guess at which ones are worth visiting. This is the first time this area is putting on a food festival, so I'm wondering if there's anywhere worth making the trip for? Any local favourites with a good prix fixe?

This is next door to Greek town, so Jones to Woodbine.

  1. Melanies menu sounds tasty and I've always enjoyed their food.

    1. Not Prix fixe but still great is Djerba-la-Douce. A group of us hounds went last week and thoroughly enjoyed it.


      1. Djerba-la-Douce is definitely worth trying.

        Dukem, Wazema, and Lalibela are the best of the Ethiopian restaurants. Dukem's injera is 50% teff (or so they say) and it is a step up from many we've tried. Plus the wots are not oversalted as they can be at Rendez-Vous among others.

        1. Melanie's is great food and service, but if ambience is important to you, it is lacking.

          Second Djerba-la-Douce.

          I enjoy Ten Feet Tall as a pub with better than average food. And their live jazz is always nice.

          The wine tasting at Sarahs might be an OK event, but I can't recommend going there at other times for anything but beer and their frites.
