Standing on the Danforth @ Eton House
710 Danforth Ave., Toronto

Eats & Laughs showcases the best restaurants, bars, and some local fast food serving great meals and drinks near Toronto's best comedy venues. Curated by Mike Christie, you can listen to Mike talk food, comedy, and Toronto on our podcast Back of the House.

Standing on the Danforth at Eton House Tavern brings great comedy the last Tuesday of every month, on top of some solid wings Monday to Wednesday. If wings are your thing, can we recommend a few nearby restaurants....for one god damn second (please listen to Back of the House for context....please).

Pizzeria Libretto (Danforth)
A sister to Pizzeria Libretto on Ossington, this is where you can the best pizza in town, a great bottle of wine, and some mouth watering warm olives. Not the cheapest, but bring a friend, call it a date and you're set. Definitely try the Neapolitan, but for the cheese lovers, the Cremini Mushroom is close to perfection. 

Avli, Messini, or Ouzeri
The best of a frankly somewhat mediocre greek lineup. But you can definitely get some lemony dishes that satisify more than a few urges. Pick one, you'll be happy.

So, this is cool.

We're thrilled to finally publicly announce our partnership with Bell Local to bring comedy to unique spaces across Toronto. Bell Local has helped us curate and put on some of what we think are Toronto's most unique and just downright hilarious comedy specials, bringing Toronto's top comics to your backyard...literally. Check out the trailer for Comedy in the Alley above, and as always see the full length version here on our website under "Comedy Videos".
