Nice dinner in the East Side?

RotaryMobile Mar 15, 2011 10:48 AM

West Enders going out for dinner in the East Side. Any suggestions? We were thinking Leslieville area. Nice but not super expensive, around $15-under 30 entrees. Any 'smart casual' suggestions?

      Ruby WatchCo? Globe? Both a bit more on the expensive side.

          Is King & Sherbourne considered East Side?

            East of Yonge so IMO yes.

            Weezie's maybe?

              Really? I've been on a bit of a burger hunt. Maybe we'll do a separate trip just for that!

                So funny, I wanted to say Burger's Priest too, but thought it wasn't quite what the OP was looking for (no sit down really). But if you go, have an extra one for me.

                Tomi Kro is definitely East Side smart casual and the menu is nearly as eclectic and diverse as its staff. A very Toronto-esque neighbourhood establishment. Reviews are quite mixed on this Board, but I've always had a pleasant and fun time, even if the food didn't wow me. If you're looking for a well-rounded experience, this must be a good stop.
