Fire on the East Side- 6 Gloucester Street, Toronto Ontario
Southern inspired menu, with a modern decor, Fire on the East Side was a nice spot for a late lunch in Toronto. The $12 Turkey & Bacon Club with sprouts and Avacado was good but the Lamb Burger with feta & mint was even better, the sides were huge, had a fabulous side salad with walnuts and beets, we also tryed the yummy thinly cut fries. The best part about lunch was the Tuesday special - phat Tuesday all martinis $6, the Man-GO! Martini was life changing. My only complaint would be that the tables outside were dirty. But,the orange water made up for it. Serving lunch till four Monday thru Friday.
Torito Tapas Bar- 276 Augusta Ave, Toronto Ontario
Located on a trendy street with tons of shops and other restaurants, Torito defiantly stands out. Starting with the cool sign out front, Torito has loads of personality and charm. Our server was extremely beautiful and super sweet, the restaurant did fill up quick and everything took way to long. It normally isn't a big deal but we had a show to catch. We started with the bread served with the queso cheese and olives unfortunately one piece of bread was rocking some mold. We both enjoyed the arctic char, which was served skin side up and very crispy. Also the beef tongue and cheek which was tender and had me guessing which was the tongue and which was the cheek.
The Grange Hotel- 165 Grange Avenue, Toronto Ontario
Friendly and fast check in even without a reservation. One block away from all the action, the bathroom was spotless, it also has a full kitchenette and the parking was cheap. You may be a little put off by the location and the pictures of the rooms, i know i was, but it wasn't that bad i have nothing to complain about for around 100 bucks a night.
