Dinner around Massey Hall

It's been a while since I've been around the Yonge & Dundas (south of) theare district. I'm looking for a decent dinner option pre-concert at the Massey Hall on Friday. Somewhere in the $15-25 entree range. Any new recommendations in the area?

    If you like beer, Duggan's isn't far from MH:

    Food I had there the one time I went was pretty good, although, maybe a tad pricey (still in your range though).

      The Queen & Beaver Gastropub is only a couple of blocks up (on Elm), perfect for your needs and budget.

        I second that. Avoid the places on Yonge and those surrounding Yonge and Dundas Square.

          Harlem is only about a 5 minute walk away.
          Origin is also walkable, but maybe a bit over the 15-25 entree range.

            Our go to place for before Massey and the Elgin/Winter Garden is Osteria tria e Cicera, Terroni's Puglese offshoot, the mains are at the upper end of your range. The menu is structured in traditional Italian antipasti/primi/secondi with contorni but you can skip the primi/pasta course and get out for about $60 each including wine/tax and tip.

              Yes! This is a great choice! Terroni's know how to do it right!
              NOT Baton Rouge.... that is just mediocre - bad food!

                The brutalities Osteria commits to their ingredients shouldn't be either allowed or tolerated. Blech.

                It's unfortunate I'm too late with this, but Rodney's By Bay fits your budget precisely. They have terrific service and a lovely by-the-glass list.
