Musings on lunch in Leslieville

lightbulb | Jul 17, 2010 05:54 AM

Just a quick post as in the title. I've worked in the area for well over 10 years and have been very happy with the changes to the Queen St E. food scene in recent years.

A friend and I were having lunch at Prohibition yesterday and we agreed it was definitely one of the best kitchens on the DVP-Coxwell strip. It was my 3rd time there in the last 2 months and the meals have always exceeded my expectations. Being a hot day, I opted for the Cobb Salad which may have been the best version I've ever had.

Perennial favourites and repeat sources of take away lunch (which I regularly provide for clients and co-workers) are Loic Gourmet, Lady Marmalade & Sushi Marche. While perhaps not top of list, I'm happy Queen Margherita is an option to Lil Baci. And Sophie's tortiere holds its own compared to Bonjour Brioche. It's been a long time since I've been to Ed Leveques and not in years to Hello Toast. And I shouldn't forget Hanoi 3 Seasons, yum! Too bad Table 17 is only open for dinner.

The biggest treat is Ed's; he can do no wrong.

And there's a coffee shop opening on the east side of Carlaw just north of Queen promising Viennese food.
