Lunch downtown near Peel and DeMaisonneuve?
Am having a business casual lunch with a client working near Peel and DeMaisonneuve this week. Any recommendations for a pleasant downtown spot with the following provisos:
No Asian food.
Not pricey - $20 a head, without alcohol.
Must be within a 8-block radius.
Walk-in, not too long a wait.
Am eager to hear your suggestions.
Cafe Romy in Ogilvy's is fairly inexpensive and in my opinion, the best non-Asian quick sitdown lunch in the area. If you don't mind eating in a department store, that is. I actually think it's kind of a fun atmosphere, and surely can't be any worse than those big noisy family style dining rooms like Mr Steer's, and all the other restaurants that line St Cathe. It's counter style ordering but the food is fresh and delicious, and it's usually not too busy or cramped. Sequestered in a section behind the stairs so it's more like a small cafe than food court in feel.
