just moved to etobicoke (29th st and lakeshore), any reccomendations?

850 degrees (thin pizza) is terrific. Avoid Ember Social.

Sunday evening feasts and Monday evening dinner deals in Toronto

On Sunday evening, we were craving lasagne or roast beef and came up with Porzia as our only good idea. However, we wanted to eat at 5 pm, and Porzia only opens at 6 so we postponed that plan.

Where else serves a memorable, delicious, special menu on Sundays (e.g. roast dinner, or a prix fixe, or a family meal), and/or discounts on amazing food on Mondays?

(We ended up at Barque but regretted the $30 per person family meal. So, please, Hounds, don't suggest places with mediocre or below-average food in its category.)

Barque - Review

Had Sunday family dinner last night at Barque. $30 per person plus drinks. Ridiculous desserts "lime-lychee cupcakes" were basically corn muffins with candied orange on top. The food was mediocre. No smoke in the ribs nor brisket. Better were their smoked chicken thighs and the wings and the al dente brussels sprouts. Best part was the smoked bourbon sour.
Won't be back for bbq!

So you say Cameron is the best chinese but you haven't eaten at Exclamation?

Really, we just want a memorable sit-down place for 6 people (including two teens) at 5 pm on a Monday before a concert at the Aud.

Charles, this is what I refer to as your "top 6" tried-and-true recs. It's my Markham bible.

What's better? I need a game plan for next time my trip to better pizza downtown gets hijacked.

Is Marcello's any good?

"Pretty standard but very good." How is that even possible?
I suppose you mean traditional dishes. Is it worth another long drive?

I'm hijacking this to say that Desserts Plus on Weston Rd is mediocre. Why Woodbridge residents rave about their pizza remains a mystery to me. Ordinary in every way. And yet, when I suggest going for better pizza almost anywhere else, I get push back!

What I found promising was the wood burning smell as I entered the restaurant last week at lunch hour. But sadly, no sign of benefit for my pizza crust. No blisters, no char. Ho hum. And don't get me started on the standard toppings.

I'm not going to deviate from your top 6 tried-and-true high quality recs. It's too long a drive to be disappointed at a new place.

Whitby/Durham restaurants that don't suck

Has anyone eaten at A Tavola, KB, The Villa, the full-service Buster Rhino's (downtown Oshawa), or Baldwin Street Burger in Brooklin recently? Anything must-eat above-average memorable compared to east end Toronto/Scarborough/Pickering? Trying to choose. Or if there's another stand-out amazing place, let me know. Thanks!

I haven't eaten at LWH since the changeover so it would be good to go again. But CP is my next stop (or Markham, your top 6 list is burned into my memory!)

George on Queen. Allow me to vent.

Do you think Yours Truly, Actinolite, and some of those newer medium to finer dining spots add up to potential greatness?

ISO Downtown's best dim sum

Had really great dim sum last Saturday at Dynasty in Yorkville. We tried 21 different dishes. Most were above average in taste, texture and quality. Would definitely return. But I do want to try Crown Princess next.

Caplansky's Deli

The densely-packed non-gooey cherry pie was actually a revelation and relief from normal cloying pie filling.

Clearly service and food issues were already this customer's concern with everything and everyone working full-power.
