Despite living near The Distillery District I have not been down there for several years. I recall on my last visit that there were few interesting food options there. I'm not sure what has opened or closed recently, but after searching the boards, it doesn't sound like much has changed.
I will be down there Friday next week with two others and will need somewhere to go for a casual sit-down lunch, with some beers. A pub atmosphere is ideal, but not a necessity. It can be either there, or within a reasonable walk, which for our purposes will be as far west as Jarvis, as far east as The Don and as far north as Queen. Beyond that there is no way to get there, eat, and be back in the available time. I am thinking somewhere on King East may be the best bet, but I am not familiar with what is there and open for lunch/brunch. We are aiming to eat by 12:00 at the latest.
Can anyone make a suggestion, or update me on how the restaurants in The Distillery are now? I know Mill Street is there, but I am hoping there is something a little better I don't know about.
Thanks in advance!
