Any suggestions for a non-steak house that serves a good steak?

What can I say? some of my guests like the meat and some don't. Some place on the subway line would be helpful. TIA for the tips.

  1. I really enjoyed the steak at Rhino a couple of weeks ago. weird.

    That's along the Queen streetcar line.

    1. You might want to consider Globe Earth on Yonge. That's on the subway line and they have a nice ribeye and a couple other cuts IIRC.

      If you're willing to venture off the subway line like both Bestellen and The Saint have great beef options.

          Any good resto will invariably have a reliably-executed steak or two on its menu. By the same token, any good steak house will always have a number of non-steak mains on its menu. In my end of town, for example (near the York Mills subway stop), there's the Miller Tavern, a posh but somewhat overpriced spot of no particular culinary distinction, which probably does steak better than anything else, with about a half dozen or so on the menu (most of them, surprisingly, decently priced). And further south from York Mills along Yonge St., there's Wildfire Steakhouse, which, besides the obligatory good steaks, does a number of good non-steak items, my favourite being its piri-piri chicken. But I'm sure you can find similar situations at many of the subway stops along the line.

          1. Jump and Biff's would be good choices. Both at King Subway station.
