Recommendations around Rexall centre and York area

Hi

I will be working at the rexall centre in August for a week staying in the York area and would appreciate any recommendations for food and drinks, nothing too fancy, in the area.

Thanks

It's a bit of a wasteland up there unfortunately. There are pubs and a food court at the university itself - in the York Lanes retail complex. East on Steeles, towards Dufferin, there are a couple of large "big box store" malls, which also include a few chain type restaurants along the lines of Boston Pizza, Caseys, etc.

Will you have a vehicle? Because you'll be limited in your choices if walking. There is a York U "Village Shuttle" that runs around the campus - not sure what the schedule is like in summer. Check the York U website.

If you look up Rexall Centre on Google Maps, you will see Highway 7 just north of where you will be (Highway 7 is just above Highway 407). You can see the main roads going north are Weston Rd. and Jane St.

Highway 7 going both east and west has tons of places to eat, especially on both sides of Highway 400.

I like Thai Bamboo at 2150 Steeles Ave W. Which is a fair bit closer than hwy 7.

For drinks there is a Fox and Fiddle on Finch east of Keele that is decent. Or you could try a pub on campus. Some are closed in the summer, but the Underground will be open.
