best bets for a late dinner near Bloorcourt Village / Dovercourt Village / Dufferin Grove / Ossington Station

I tried to stop in for a late bite at 10 pm at Actinolite on Ossington at Hallam last night, but found out their kitchen closes at 10 pm.

Which restaurants would you recommend near Bloor & Ossington, that would still be serving food at 10 pm? Looks like the Roxton's kitchen ( on Harbord) is open until late on Sat night (12:30 am Sun morning).

  1. I haven't been, but Tall Boys and Two Bite Saloon should serve late.

    Or head east a bit and go to k-town.

          I've eaten at Tall Boys. I had this awesome burger with kimchee. It was super good! I think the fries were good too. Someone else had the fish tacos and they seemed to like them.

            Good to know. Will check it out at some point.

    1. You might also want to try the various Ethiopian restaurants, they tend to be open late.

      1. Popeyes, no joke, they're open late.

        The Jerk King across the street....

        if you want a sit down proper resto, there's Bestellen at College & Dovercourt. There's also The Emerson by Lansdowne & Bloor.

        I want to root for The Emerson because they're eschewing the social media bombardment typical of most restaurants nowadays. Not a fan of that stuff at all.

          Thanks aser. Was wondering about The Emerson. Will check it out.

          1. re: prima

            In case that's a factor for you, The Emerson is unfortunately not very veg-friendly (you're basically stuck with sides). Unlike the Whippoorwill next door...

            1. re: piccola

              Then you're the person to ask. How, other than veggie stay home, do The Emerson and Whippoorwill compare to one another?

              1. re: Googs

                I actually like both, though I've gone to the Whippoorwill more often because of the all-day breakfast (and the greater veg appeal). The Emerson has better beer, in my opinion. I haven't compared their cocktails or wines. I'm hoping The Emerson becomes a little more veg-friendly because I'd like to go more often. It's a nice place.

            1. If you'll go as far as bloor/duff, 3 speed serves food late, though getting a table would be challenging.
