Lunch near Bloor and the West Mall

I need to take a client to lunch next week near Bloor and the West Mall. I am looking for a spot that would offer good food, a relatively quiet spot to talk and a fairly quick turnaround (we probably have about an hour and a half). My client is very into healthy eating and a clean diet - the restaurant doesn't need to be Rawlicious, but healthy options are a must. Any suggestions?

  1. Sadly, I find central Etobicoke a bit of a wasteland when it comes to finding good restaurants. The only recommendation I can think of in close proximity for lunch with a client might be Via Allegro. It's near Sherway Gardens and years ago was rated very highly. Unfortunately, it has also been years since a I visited it. At a minimum they have a great wine list that should please any palate.

      Thanks Cynalan! I'd forgotten about Via Allegro. As it turned out, my client said she'd choose a place - so I'm off the hook for now. I'm not expecting anything great, but I'll report back if there are any good surprises in that area.
