Queen and Bathurst area reco needed

DUH CAR Dec 3, 2003 12:22 PM

Looking for a "nice" restaurant in this area to eat dinner before going to Healey's.
Don't want a pizza place, pita place, or fast food.

Bring it on!!!

    I suspect it might be a bit of a hike but Mildred Pierce is around Dovercourt and Queen. I have never been, but I have always heard positive things about it!

      It is a ways as you say. We actually tried to do brunch there this Staurday but they don't do brunch on Saturday.

        Try Azul's (which is right at Queen and Bathurst). The website gives the menu and pictures of the decor.

          is the food as tasty/cool as the Web site?

            Portions are somewhat small but they definitely are tasty and they have good martinis too.

            I second Azul! Quirky but always interesting and fairly priced.

              Fans of Azul should go there soon, as the restaurant closes by end of December. It will be turned into a bar, with limited tapas, as far as I know.

        Don't know if this falls into the "nice" category - but you might want to try the Paddock on bathurst just south of Queen.

        Their food is all right, but don't stay too late as it will begin to become more of a bar.

          more than as you say "all right". However looking at some other Web sites, it sounds like the food is good there.

          Any one else eaten at The Paddock?

            As a fan of grilled calimari, I can say that the one served at the Paddock is pretty good. Unlike others that may be served with a typical mixed green out of a bag, the Paddock serves theirs with a nicely piquant ginger slaw - a great contrast to the delicate texture of lightly grilled tubes. I do hope they still serve this dish; it's been a while since I've had it.

          Go to SAN a few blocks west of Bathurst. Delicious Korean and Japanese food at a reasonable price.

            Have always had good luck at the Friendly Thai, on Queen just east of Bathurst. Especially enjoy the Thai Ice Tea, which borders on being a milkshake.
