Italian/Asian Choices Near Fairmont Royal York

Spending Saturday night at The Royal York. My girlfriend's birthday request is either Italian, or Thai/Asian. I know this is quite a range, but would like to hear some options. Weather is looking great, so walking distance would also be great.

  1. You could walk to Buca on King West for italian or Lee for asian tapas in the same general location. Scarpetta is also over that way and is birthday worthy Italian. Blowfish on King West is also not bad for Japanese slanted asian.

    You could also walk the other way to Mengrai Thai on Ontario Street. Also to the east, Romagna Mia is more old school Italian and quite reasonable.

    Any of those are about a 20 minute walk. You could cab it back.

    82 Ontario Street, Toronto, ON M5A 2V3, CA

    604 King St. West, Toronto, ON M5V 1M6, CA

    1. Sounds like a great start. Drinks on the way. Perfect night.

        You'll need reservations for just about all of them on a Saturday night. And the walk west is certainly more scenic than the walk east.
