I'll be in Parkdale for a friend's party on Saturday and am hijacking this opportunity for dinner in the nabe.
1. Cowbell - I know recent reports here at CH have been semi-ruinous, but this place made Chatto's recent Top 10 (new restos), and Mr. Rab is all about grass fed beef since he read Pollan. I remain curious.
2. Delux - admittedly not really even in Parkdale, but close enough... getting good press.
3. Foxley's... see above.
4. The Drake - I know this place actually gets bad press around here, but my mom says she had a very respectable meal here recently - and I think the space is still gorgeous (if you eat before the weekend S&M crowd gets in (Scarborough and Mississauga).
What would CH-ers do (... any alternate suggestions?)?
