Nami is pretty slick, I really enjoyed the sushi pizza they have. I think they have hibachi (sp?) chefs and tables as well, so if you want to sit down and watch your food get cooked, it's fun. The sushi there is good and fresh. Toronto, in general, lacks the 'Montreal style' sushi places like Ginger, Sho Dan, Kozi Kaizan, which serve funky/different/non-traditional sushi in a slick lounge type environment. I think places like that would make a killing in this city. Nami isn't a cheap place with respect to price as far as I remember.

A couple of other places that come to mind right now for some good yamming:

Wings - Bistro on Avenue, St. Louis (Yonge close to Eg), Duffs (Bayview between Eg and St. Clair). - all have great wings and half price days on Tuesdays.

Italian - Ferro on St Clair between Bathurst and Dufferin I beleive. Great food and atmosphere at a reasonable price.

Peace,

T

There are two Kubo's in the city.

The better one is located on Dalhousie Street near Queen.

The second, smaller, more 'corporate' one is located in the Design Exchange of the Ernst and Young Tower in the TD Centre. Basically, if you know where Canoe is, it's in the adjacent building. It doesn't get that busy at night, so I'd go to the one on Dalhousie.

Peace,

Yeah the flavours are really really good, especially from soups that seem out of the ordinary.

Apache Burger is that much better as well because it is open really late. I mean nothing like a fatty burger and fries at 3am.

My favorite is Lone Star on Front St across from Convention Centre.

Awesome dinners - Fahitas & steaks.
I can't stop eating the free nachos & salsa. Try it & you will believe!
I fill up so much on the nachos, that i hardly have room for the steak. Though I do finish, even if I have to undo my pants!

you should try tempo on college, kind of pricey but they look like their moving into that direction... if you go at none peak hours the chef might do this thing where he basically makes what he feels like based on what's available and feeds you all these little courses until you say stop.

my faves:
peter pan- can be nice and casual, also good for taking those out that are not into "adventurous" food
focaccia- little italian restaurant on yonge north of wellesley
sushi time- for bento boxes, open late too
spring rolls- good pan asian food
swallow- in parkdale, amazing brunch and dinner
hot house grill- ok food especially for a buffer but nice alternative for the family if they usually do the manadarin or vinnie's zuchinnies thing

I would have to say: Spiral on Church street, great for Thai food! Or Bistro 990 or North 44...as long as someone else is picking up the tab!

Ah ... Montreal is so much fun for eating out!

I have very good memories of a place called Shed (or was it Shack) Cafe on St. Laurent, as well as Red Thai (we had to wait sooooo long to get in (even with a reservation!!), but it was yummy ... & perfect pre-Sona fare to boot. Then again, all one really needs is a Gianni pizza slice to provide energy for tons 'o dancing.

Comparing notes on mostly burgers, pizza & soups? I think not! ... *some* of us just like to share valuable information on where to get good grub without having to use the standard old resources ... besides - even if discussing Scaramouche or similar, isn't it good to get first-hand accounts? There are too many crappy overpriced places out there to count ...

I love comparing notes & getting recommendations - that's how you find out about the best holes in the wall; but then, that's just me.

I discovered an underground network of tunnels, downtown, full of fast food joints!

Incredible!

Tomorrow I start a serious exploration of the undergorund complex...
