JK Wine Bar

Since they don't take reservations and it's Friday night, if you're there by 6 you should be able to get a decent table.

Korean restaurants in Toronto?

San changed ownership about a year ago.

Any Uniquely Decorated Chinese Restaurant in T.O?

China House on Eglinton just west of Bathurst. Looks like a nightclub in an old Charlie Chan movie with ancient waiters in red jackets. There's even a bridge and a tree "growing" in the main room. Authentic mainland Chinese that you'd find in Markham? Hardly. But if its archetypal ambiance you want, this is the place. And the food's actually pretty good and not expensive at all. Retro Canadian Chinese.

Here's the outside:

Where to eat? (University, between Dundas and Queen)

By about 30 feet.


Welcome to Chowhound!

Delux....Patio, Menu???

They don't have a website and there's no patio,

Wolfgang Puck evicted on Sheppard at Yonge

I don't think this is Puck's doing — he sells the rights to the name.

Patio for group of 20, preferrably near the water

Waterside Bistro. Great view right on the lake, food OK.

Patio dinner Tonight!...

Diner near Carlton?

Church Street Diner?

Dinner before Dirty Dancing

Crush. About a 10-minute walk from the hotel and another 10 back to the theatre.

Although there are many eateries in the neighbourhood, most are very tourist-oriented (ie few Torontonians would eat there).

or Le Select (same distance):

mainstream French bistro, nice ambiance

Dinner before Dirty Dancing

There's a Radisson on Wellington? Not according to

And what's your budget?

Vegan bakery?....Anyone?

Kensington Natural Bakery on Bloor in the Annex:

Cosmos + Nibbles? (Toronto)

Spice Route!

Embrujo Flamenco Report

Welcome to Chowhound!

Toronto's Signature Dish?

Consider yourself corrected. Sushi pizza started in California.

El Sol - Did it change hands, and is it still good?

The sale of El Sol will come as a surprise to the owner Yolanda.

Anniversary Dinner - Mistura vs Spice Room

I've been to both. Spice Room = hip, downtown-ish, but certainly not a lounge scene as decribed above. Mistura = older Forest Hill/Rosedale crowd.

IOW very different.

Emergency - Need Good Filipino Restaurant

"Great'? Whereabouts are you? There's a couple of places in Scarboro. Cheap, family-style sorta spots. Not really special occasion.

Casa Manilla
879 York Mills Rd. (at Don Mills) 416-443-9654

Jules Bistro on Spadina

Have you eaten there or only had takeout?

E is for...

Vegetarian Ethiopian!

what to eat when i take a break from studying :-(

And so closed on weekends. I say Burrito Boys at 218 Adelaide just west of Simcoe two blocks away. Prolly the only spot in the core that fits a student's budget (ie good food under $10 that's open.

Long weekend in Toronto

trendy Italian: Terroni on Adelaide East (one block north of King Edward)

or Gio Rana's in Lesliville, Seven Numbers on the Danforth

expense account Italian: Via Allegro on the Queensway

Old school: as noted Little Italy (College Street west of Bathurst) hasn't been an Italian neighbourhood since the 70s. The second wave moved north to St Clair West around Dufferin Street and the third north to Woodbridge in the burbs.

On St Clair: The Big Ragu or Marcello's

Marcello's a noisy family type place. Once a month, Big Ragu recreates the menu and music from the movie Big Night. Lots of fun.

FYI Toronto is supposedly the second largest Italian-speaking city in the world. Or it was back in the 60s. Sadly, most local Italian restaurants are upscale and northern Milan-style like Biagio and Romagna Mia (both close to the KEHl).

Help! Quick bite at Front & Jarvis

Le Petit Dejeuner: King & Jarvis

or grab a huge Italian-style grilled eggplant sandwich at Mustachio in the lower level of St Lawrence Market for $5. No seating but open til 7.
