A haven for all things Jays, Leafs, and Raptors, this Entertainment District sports bar has you covered with classic bar bites -- such as the popular foot-long hot dog wrapped in bacon -- a 39-foot HD big screen, and over 126 draught taps. A list of cocktails is also available, but we suggest the Puck Bunny -- a mix of raspberry vodka, cassis, pomegranate juice, lemonade, and soda.
The Burger's Priest isn't a restaurant - it's a religion. It's about redeeming the burger from sinfully over-processed and over-spiced frozen patties, and bringing it back to pure fresh ground beef and simple toppings. Order "The Pope" from the secret menu - you won't actually receive Pope Francis, but you will get a double cheeseburger with two roasted portabello mushrooms, which is the next best thing.
Harbour 60 Steak House plates some outstanding steaks, but if you really wanna get the best dish they have, add some surf to your turf with a full lobster along side your steak.
This family-owned Italian bar and cafe serves up delicious pizza made in a wood-fired oven.
San Francesco is home to some tasty Italian dishes, but their claim to fame is their classic veal sandwich, which definitely requires two hands to engage.
Smoke's is one of the first of its kind, serving up a menu exclusive to poutine, and with more than 30 core menu choices, as well as the option to build your own, you can't go wrong if you're jonesin' for poutine.
More than just a quality Tex-Mex resto, Sneaky Dee's is also a premiere music venue that hosts a number of shows every week in their 200+ person concert hall.
Cocktails and their expert mixologists have carved out a scene in Toronto, with restaurants manned by seriously in-the-know bartenders, and equipped with good cocktails lists to match, supporting the renaissance. This pretty, pink-walled, Harbord Street restaurant might be pretty well-known for its burgers for one, but you can't look past the dessert-like cocktail offerings, like the pineapple cocktail served in shareable portions. And don't forget the dessert options themselves, which include Silicina-style donuts made fresh with ricotta batter and orange zest.
Located on Bloor St West (there's a second location as well), Banjara serves up authentic Indian cuisine, buffet-style! It's possibly the best Indian food in the city and it's cheap to boot!
Nestled on Queen St W, Gandhi serves up some seriously quality Indian food, including their massive Saag Paneer, which contains more than 1400 calories and 70 grams of fat. You may need medical attention after eating it.
