Based on some Chowhound surfing, we went to Sidecar last evening. The restaurant is great value.
My husband started with a caesar salad which he deemed- Okay. He then had the steak frites- incredible value. The four people at the table next to us all had the steak frites and cautioned him to order a grade more done to get the desired result. Since he likes his steak medium rare, he ordered it medium and it was perfect. He would totally order it again.
I had the arugula salad to start- really excellent and very fresh. My main was penne with tomatoes and chorizo and it was perfect. I really appreciated the generous portion of regianno to top it off with. My husband also loved this pasta. I had a "Badass" Mojito. I must say it was the very best Mojito I have ever had in Toronto. It had fresh raspberries in it as well as the requisite lime and mint and it was very, very potent. I was pretty looped after just one drink. I think they use a stronger proof of rum. Our total bill was $63.00 before tax and tip.
We really liked the atmosphere in the restauarant and the service was really nice.
The pris fixe menu, Sunday-Thursday- $25.00 for three courses is an incredible deal. Great for families.
