Help

Thanks Juno and everyone else that took the time with suggestions.
Last night I saw on the news the subway will be closed from Bloor to Lawrence the weekend of Sept. 6-7.Nice!
So there goes anything above Lawrence or across York Mills..lol
I did go into Stacks yesterday to check it out before I knew about the TTC closure and thinking maybe we could sit upstairs but they only open it at night. Plus it was way too noisy.The manager and I could hardly hold the conversation shouting over the noise at lunch.
Don't laugh but I think it may end up being Anthony's at Don Mills and Lawrence.
Free parking,easy to get down from the 401,it is sort of central without being too busy.
It is ok for brunch not great but I have had worse,lol and I know they will look after us well there.Plus no blasting music !!! We can get up and move around there and they won't rush out out.
The priority is really about our group meeting and being able to chat. I put up the menu from Anthonys and it is fine with them. Although it looks better than it really is, it will have to do.lol
Thanks everyone for your help, it is much appreciated.

Thanks, that could maybe be an option. I work right across the street from there,why didn't I think of that. lol They don't seem to have a brunch menu but there are lots of salads and apps.I have been once for lunch and it was good.

I thought of that but I don't think they want to spend that much,plus the reviews are not very good. The ones I read anyways.
thanks

Help

I need some input if any one could make a few suggestions?
I offered to host a get together for several women[could be 6 to 15 ,don't have the numbers yet] that only know each other on a forum.We decided to have a lunch or brunch on a weekend to meet.Seeing that some come from the east and west of Toronto I want to keep it central for those driving or taking the TTC.As usual parking would be an issue.
Something moderately priced ,like under $20 before tip and tax.They are mostly over 50 so something without blasting music and somewhere where we would be able to have seating that we could all move around to converse I'm thinking to stay away from Yonge and Eg. because of the mess of traffic there. Also nothing south of that either. So Yonge and Lawrence,York Mills. Don Mills and York Mills .
I doubt that Asian would be good.
I have not been to the Abbot Pub n. of Lawrence on Yonge but I've heard it is ok.
any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks

I liked their food for lunch.

Best Scones in Toronto

I love the scones from Epi at Bayview and Millwood.
Apricot was my fav but then they quit making them and now make raspberry which are delicious too.

Salad ideas for a crowd?

What about a couscous salad?

Couscous, Chickpea and Cranberry Salad <print-small-icon.png>
This is a beautiful salad to serve as part of a buffet meal. The sweet orange dressing goes so well with the dried cranberries, chickpeas and basil. Always have a container of orange juice concentrate on hand in the freezer for cooking and baking purposes; you can remove the amount needed while still frozen. **addition of sliced grilled chicken breast is very good!
1 cup chicken stock 1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup couscous 2 Tbsp orange juice concentrate
3/4 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed/drained 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp grated orange rind 1/3 cup dried cranberries
3 Tbsp liquid honey 1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 tsp minced fresh garlic 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/8 cup chopped basil or parsely

Bring the stock to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat. Stir in the couscous, cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, fluff with a fork and cool.
Stir the chickpeas, cranberries, green onions, red peppers and basil or parsley into the cooled couscous.
To make the dressing, whisk the olive oil, orange juice concentrate, lemon juice, orange rind, honey and garlic in a small bowl. Pour over the couscous mixture and toss to coat.

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

Yes they are both missed . Oliver's especially was so good,especially the bakery.I used to go there all the time and their croissants were the best.
Going waaay back I can think of the Underground Railroad, nothing has ever replaced it. The music,atmosphere and food were fantastic. I can still taste the smothered steak.Also at Bloor and Yonge there was a Hungarian place,forget the name , was it the Goulash Pot ? It had good food and was reasonable.Even Rugantino's across the street was good basic Italian food.Also Alex's on Mt. Pleasant was very good, went there for years.AHH memories!

Folia Grill: pork gyros is not your typical gyros...its ridiculously amazing

I had the chicken and my husband had the pork souvlaki this afternoon.OMG was it delicious !!! We also had the zucchini fries,another winner.We each had a pop and it was under $20.
The chicken was so tasty and tender , mixed in with their yummy fries,this huge stuffed pita was so filling for under $6 and we are stuffed. I told the nice young men cooking that I would post something good on here.

Kinnaree Thai on Ellesmere at Pharmacy - What's good there?

We just had lunch at Kinnaree and wow was it good. Spring rolls were excellent.I had the Red Chicken Curry [extra spicy] and my husband had the Spicy Beef .All was delicious !!! Can't wait to go back.
The owner was a very nice sweet man and he said he also does a lot of catering and they are open 7 days a week.
there are several other restaurants there in that strip. Any one tried the others?

where is the best fish and chips in Toronto/GTA??

The meat in the pie was dry and stringy with as I said ,hardly any gravy.I reheated it @ 350 for about 25 mins. with foil loosely on top so it would not over cook the crust.Neither my husband or I enjoyed it much.
The fish was nice and hot but maybe it should have been fried a little longer as the batter was not cooked through. It was not horrible just in comparison to Old Yorke it was not as tasty.

Really,that is a good deal. I like haddock I should try this sometime.Halibut is SO expensive.
One summer we went to Picton for 2 weeks and this little 2 story place on the main road going into town had the best EVER fish and chips. We must have eaten there 4-5 times .

By creamy I mean soft verses dry.They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside,a perfect fry for me.
I do like Old Yorke as they have much more selection on their menu than Penrose.
I forgot to mention I ordered 2 steak and ale pies to go at High Street,had them the next day and the meat was dry and hardly any gravy.

Penrose is still my favorite for flavor, although the portions are TOO small I always have 2 orders.The sides are nothing great and the place is small but the fries are nice and creamy which I like.
The Old Yorke is very good with satisfying portions, good service and a very nice greek salad.We have taken out their key lime pie which is excellent.
This past weekend we tried High Street and was not that impressed.The fries were nothing special and the fish had a muckiness in between the batter and fish.
I ordered the green salad and it was bagged mixed greens thrown on a plate for $6 with salad dressing in a plastic container on the side.. Not impressed.

Well thats my problem, I don't own a baseball cap.
My husband really does not like much seafood which is why I skipped Diana's.
Birch and Lawr. is as far east as I'll go. Have to draw the line some where.lol I mean I live in Don mills. Why am I eating in Scarborough?
Do you know whats up on York Mills at Don Mills? I recently drove by but it was at night and It seemed there was a strip of places up there.I've tried googling but came up with nothing much.
Thanks again.
