Schnitzel Queen ~ 211 Queen St E ~ (416) 504-1311

Schnitzel Queen is the stuff of legend.  A European diner located on Queen St E. in the heart of Moss Park, they’ve been serving-up enormous schnitzel sandwiches and scrumptious dinner plates for the past 25 years.  And while new owner Karl Hubsch wasn’t able to woo any investors on the Dragon’s Den, he sure does keep…

Patrician Grill ~ 219 King St E ~ (416) 366-4841

I have always had a soft spot for the Patrician Grill.  When I was a kid, my dad used to take my brother and I to his office on Saturday mornings. We’d head directly across the street to the Patrician Grill for a peameal on a kaiser at lunch.  Some thirty years later, it feels…
