Mimico, New Toronto & Long Branch restaurants - revised thread!

Hopefully we can continue sharing our favourite haunts and new discoveries in the South Etobicoke - Lake Shore area.

Newer finds? Old favourites? The area has seen some big changes in the past year or two, what do you like?

We enjoyed out first meal at GoodLake (2976 Lake Shore) on Friday night, about a week after their soft opening. It was excellent. My mate had the hangar steak and frites, sooo tender and spot-on medium rare as requested. I had the braised beef short ribs in a red wine reduction, with parsnip purée and confit potatoes. Superb. For dessert: bananas foster creme brûlée, served in a small ramekin. I personally didn't enjoy it much, far too much vanilla-booziness for my liking, and the sliced bananas were cold, I'm guessing because the creme brûlée wouldn't set properly at a warm temp. Coffee is served in 16 or 20 oz. chemex, they use Pilot coffee. Too weak for our tastes but not bad tasting. Oddly it's poured into small glasses.
Atmosphere is quite lovely. Reclaimed barn wood walls, pressed copper/tin type wainscotting along one wall, Edison bulb pendant lighting, beautiful wood tables and chairs, cozy diamond plush booth seating. A small bar at one end. Service is friendly and efficient. We're looking forward to trying the monkfish stew and perch dishes next. Definitely recommended, a great asset to the area!
