Scarborough - with a glass of wine

tonyjohnson54 Aug 8, 2011 07:18 AM

Enjoyed the recent thread on Scarborough, particularly as we seem to spend so many evenings there due to our kids' soccer fixtures.

Enjoy the diverse restaurant options - indian, Caribbean, Asian etc - but like to have a glass of wine with dinner after the game.

What would be recommendations for Scarborough after 8:30 PM - with a glass of wine.

    That's pretty tough. I've found the restaurants to be wine challenged. The idea of pairings has yet to catch on. What you'll find is regular LCBO listing bottles a small step down from say, Keg offerings. Try Jawny Bakers or Georgy Porgy's if you must. There may be some hope at ViPei Bistro, but I haven't been yet.

      Zen should fit the bill.

        I thought of Zen, but two things: They close at 9:30 and their wine list is, and I'm being generous, mediocre.

        Cafe Mirage at the Kennedy Commons at 401 & Kennedy. They serve crepes, waffles, dessert too. It's not spectacular but there's really nothing else similar in Scarborough.

        It's very crowded on the weekends but I'm guessing weeknights are semi-quiet.

        Edited to add: Sorry, didn't realize you wanted dinner with the wine. Cafe Mirage has over-priced, not great food. Perhaps have dinner elsewhere and then head over for a post-dinner glass.
