TTC Subway Dash & Dine 2009

Stop me if you've heard this one...

Annually as the snow piles up and the temperatures go down the same question arises all over the Toronto CH board. “Where can I dine without freezing my toches off to get there?”

This was originally created for the benefit of my girlfriends. We need a list of restos that are spike-heeled-running-distance from the subway. It’s updated annually to reflect the new and the passing so as to not waste precious steps. It is not specifically a list of “the best” restos in town. Its main purpose is function.

While I’ve been to many of these I haven’t been to all. An effort was made to add adventure by having a few new ones to try along the February blahs way to spring thaw awes. I’ve done careful research of opinions on this board and elsewhere for intersections that I don’t frequent to create the newbie list. After all, I have every intention of taking my friends to these places.

It is by no means comprehensive. The grazing range for my friends and I tends to be south of Eglinton and east of Bathurst. CH expertise for the subway stops not covered is very welcome as are restaurants I may have overlooked. This is a community project after all.
