Recommended lunch restaurant near University and King?

Looking for a restaurant to have a good lunch near university and King, preferably around $25 an entree. Should I just look at the chains? The boss wants to take us out but I've been given a limited budget to work with and I'm not sure there's anything decent to be had at that price.

  1. Volos at Richmond & York? Wherever you go, get a reservation quick. Everything's getting booked solid.

    1. Are you willing to walk a little or take the TTC up a stop? If so, then Nota Bene would be a good upscale business lunch. My personal pick, though would be The Gabardine for a more casual atmosphere but yummy food.

      And honestly, $25 an entree should get you in pretty much anywhere for lunch, even upscale like Canoe, Jump, etc.

        iirc Gabardine doesn't take reservations.

      2. great suggestions, thank you.

        1. Bymark and Vertical would both fit the bill for a $25 lunch entree!

          1. Ditto all of the above

            Just be aware, Bymark would be tough to get $25 entrees. They are closer to $30
