Bay & Wellesley
I have to be in Toronto on business next week (ugh, Christmas week away from home). I'm staying at the Sutton PLace and was wondering if there were any good places for dinner in the area other than the hotel restaurant. I like to get away from the hotel from time to time.
If you want something really close to your hotel, there's Debu Saha's Biryani House, which frequently gets mentioned on this board. It's located at 25 Wellesley St. E.
Mammina's Risorante, 7 Wellesley St W. (just west of Yonge). Authentic Italian. Nice ambiance. Crisp White Tablecloths. Reasonable. I usually get the lamb chops with a green salad to start. The BEST part of this place is that the wine is only marked up $5.00 over LCBO prices so you can get a scrumptious bottle of Amarone for $35.00. It is smallish. I would make reservations.
I recommend Le Matignon for French food; the restaurant is located on St. Nicholas Street. Mustapha is a wonderful maitre d'. If you need a place for a 24 hour nosh, go to 7 West on St. Charles Street. If you go to Yonge Street just south of Bloor, Spring Rolls is quite good for Asian.
