Toronto solo dinner

Tagging along on hubby's business trip to Toronto and I will be on my own for dinner one night. Any suggestions for an interesting spot near Fairmount Royal York where a single diner wouldn't feel too out of place? Bar seating is fine, maybe even preferred since you don't get glared at for taking up an entire table for two.

  1. It's a been awhile since I was a solo diner but I'm going to go out on a dated limb and suggest Wine Bar on Church. Also maybe Beer Bistro? Trevor?

      I was there in December. It's more shared plates - and I find the execution mediocre, menu predictable and over priced.

        These are both perfect places to dine solo. The people are super friendly at both and the food choices are varied and delicious.

          Thanks for rec on Richmond Station, slipped in @6:30 w/o reservation, had a totally fabulous meal, every bite. Perfect oysters, really inventive & balanced soft-shell-crab on potato salad (I know, sounds odd, but gotta try) then this fantabulous de-constructed lemony cheesecake triffle-like hard-to-describe yum.

        2. The kitchen bar at Origin would be great for this.

          1. These all sound tremendous already... thanks!

            1. Biff's is not a bad place for solo dining.
