Recommendation needed for Vancouverite invading Toronto

g

Have a friend coming in for visit this week (Wed) and need a rec, willing to go up to $25/30 for dinner. Something unique, so Asian is out. Location has to be TTC friendly, subway stop preferable. Will try to avoid the 'licious, unless you guys have a compelling recommendation.

I was all set for Black Hoof until I realized they dont open on Wed, so I'm scrambling here.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Depends on what kind of vibe you're looking for.
    Many people like Origin (myself included), but $25/30 may be pushing it (only 2-3 small plates). More Bay St. crowd than the Hoof but still loud/fun.

    For more of a Hoof vibe go down the street to Campagnolo maybe?

      I don't think that you could go to Campagnolo for that price point.

      $25 to $30 total? Or $25 to $30 for a main course?

        FYI, $25/30 a person would be pushing it even for the Hoof. that would have been closer to $50/person IF you had drinks (and drinks are tempting).

        Toronto's great for high end food that doesn't void your wallet, but $25/person total is really setting the bar low.

        and yes, avoid Summerlicious.

          Don't know what the pizza scene is like in Vancouver but you could do Pizzeria Libretto's dinner prix fixe ($25+tax, tip). Bustling & lively atmosphere.
