A little nostalgia... who remembers...?

About 20 yrs ago I worked at Don Mills and Eglinton. We used to go out to the Holiday Inn at Wynford Dr... the restaurant there was called Eglinton Eats. I don't remember any of the other items on the menu except for their Club Sandwich... the absolute best I've ever had before or since. It was "real turkey"... not the deli-sliced stuff, and it even had a thin slice of red onion in it, and it was all served on marble rye... YUM.

Also, there used to be an Italian restaurant on Yonge somewhere between Bloor and Wellesley, called Rugantino's. We discovered the absolute best pizza in this place. Alas, the place is no longer there. That would be about 30 yrs ago.

Also in the same stretch of Yonge street, there was an Indian restaurant (don't remember the name, but might have been India House). This was our very first experience with curry... YUM. We've never been able to duplicate that experience since. That too was 30 yrs ago.

Does anyone have anything on these places? I know that Rugantino's moved to another location around the corner from Yonge St near the Charles Promenade (I think). However we didn't like it as much then.

Share your experiences please...
