Trinity Modern Greek Taverna

Have heard very good things from several friends, but haven't had a chance to visit yet.

  1. A website that auto plays music and requires clicks to see even basic info, is it 1996 again?

    Seriously I know this is a harsh thing to say but if a restaurant has an ill considered web site (this one is not at least physically ugly) I basically assume that similar bad decision making happens in relation to the kitchen.

      As far as I understand, Trinity Taverna is somehow connected to the owner and/or management of the Queue de Cheval steakhouse in Montreal, which has been a successful restaurant for years, and the Trinity Taverna which had been in operation in Montreal.

      My friends were happy with their meals, especially the seafood dishes and mezes. The menu includes some mezes and sides I haven't seen frequently in TO Greek restaurants:

      I've also heard good things about the patio's atmosphere and ambiance. It will be nice to have a solid Greek option with a nice patio and view in the Beaches.

      I'm not here to critique the website.Joso's has an obnoxious website, yet it serves some of the best seafood in TO. I'm here to pass along news about good food when I hear about it. The same friend who told me about Trinity is the friend who led me to post (under my former handle of phoenikia) about the souvlaki at Folia Grill. Since hearing about Trinity Taverna on the weekend, I've heard more good reports about the food from more friends. The friends who have recommened Trinity Taverna to me have dined at tavernas throughout different regions in Greece, and one of them is an accomplished home cook with respect to Greek food. If the food at a new Greek restaurant in TO makes them happy, I'm going to take the time to check it out, obnoxious website or not.

      I'm looking forward to trying their grilled octopus and fried calamari, to see how their versions compare to the versions at Volos and on the Danforth.

      Trinity Taverna takes reservations through Opentable.

        Prima, on a completely unrelated topic, how were you able to trade your name for a new one. I've been wanting to do that for a while, but don't know how.

    2. I will give it a go for sure but I find lakeshore really inaccessible via ttc so it will have to be a night I feel like getting a car or taxi both ways.

        If it's the boardwalk place the Woodbine or Coxwell buses both get you pretty close (considering it's a nice walk thru park or along beach). If you're willing to take a bus to eat somewhere... I live on the subway and am a bit of a bus snob myself :)

      2. Ah

        This is the place that has moved in to the building where the Boardwalk Pub used to be. There are some interior shots on facebook and it looks very pretty.

        It's only been open since July 17th

        1. Oh my. I am drooling over the menu. It all looks appealing Looking forward to trying it.

            I looked at the menu, and it looks great for a carnivore, hahaha. Would like to see some veggie options!

            1. re: Full tummy

              There are some vegetables but they seem to all be on the mezze and spreads part of the menu. Well I have to go buy some new speakers now, I shot them as that music on the website is very irritating

              1. re: foodyDudey

                Accessing it from a mobile device is way less irritating, then!

          2. Wow - I had zero expectations for that place based on the former restaurant. How are the prices? That's a great location for me.
