This hip Financial District resto - a surprising little celebration of fine cuisine inside a stretch of towering high rises - is a bastion of superb Canadian fare served up in a friendly, fun atmosphere. Diners feast on the Ploughman's Lunch starter - a giant platter of patés and terrines with paired munchies like apples, sharp cheddar and preserves - before turning their attention to such reliable mains as pork chops, chicken pot pies and juicy po' boy sandwiches. The restaurant has a mix of seating options, including snug corners for couples and communal tables for folks looking to turn mealtime into a party. The options make the place a good pick for either lunch or dinner, depending on your fancy.more...
Comfort food classics such as Tuna Melt on English Muffin ($15) and Chicken Pot Pie ($19) are ideal for this time of year.
Should you want something with a little more pep, the Deep Fried Beer Cheese “Rarebit” ($13) and Trinidadian Geera Pork ($16) or Chana ($14) satiates.
Local lore surrounds this French-bistro-meets-diner in Toronto's Financial District. Widely held to be the city's longtime champion of mac 'n' cheese by Torontonians past and present, The Gabardine’s cheddar, mozzarella, Parmesan and chèvre recipe is a dish locals have literally sworn allegiance to. No joke. People get solemnly intense when it comes up in conversation, so as to communicate its due honour. The two options — veggie breadcrumb-crusted and smoked ham — can be found on both the lunch and dinner menus for $17 and $19 respectively.
Downtown diners rave about the elevated pub grub at this Bay Street eatery. The crowd might be suit-and-tie but the menu keeps it casual with a selection of home-style favourites like fried chicken ’n’ waffles, chicken potpie and pork chops. The stand out dish here is the creamy mac and cheese mixed with smoked ham, topped with a breadcrumb crust, and served with a side of homemade ketchup. The ooey-goey meal is a perennial childhood favourite and the perfect taste of home after a grueling day at the office.
