A few months ago I blogged about my experience at Rock Lobster on Queen West. I loved the food, drinks and atmosphere – it was a great dinner and experience! You may remember from my original Rock Lobster post that I wasn’t sure that it was exactly kid-friendly. There wasn’t a child in sight, and the music was very very loud! Not exactly the right atmosphere for a toddler, or even a baby for that matter. The amazing news is that Rock Lobster has opened up another location in Toronto, but they not only encourage you bring your baby, but your dog too!
The new location is all the way down the other end Queen Street, and it has three patio’s, and they have water bowls for dogs as they are allowed to hang out on the patio while you are eating. The children’s menu at this location includes mac and cheese topped with crumbled Gold Fish, which sounds perfect for my toddler. I’m pretty excited as the seafood doesn’t get any fresher (flown in fresh from Nova Scotia!), and all of the appetizers, entree’s and cocktails were so creative. And when I am having lunch with my toddler, I need a cocktail.
Rock Lobster Leslieville is located at 1192 Queen St. E., 416-533-1800, @rocklobsterfood, www.rocklobsterfood.com
