GREAT DRINKS & EATS ON GEARY

North Toronto Post - - Food -

FAMIGLIA BALDASSARRE

This joint is no longer a se­cret to the pasta-lov­ing hordes of the Junc­tion (and the rest of the city). Al­though most of the time this pasta kitchen pro­duces fresh lin­guine, canestri and tortel­loni for lo­cal restos, from 12 to 2 p.m. it turns into a mi­cro lunch counter with a limited menu of some of the best pasta dishes in the city. 122 Geary Ave.

NORTH OF BROOK­LYN

Lo­cated in­side the Greater Good bar, this pizze­ria has a great rep be­cause of its cheese-laden, pep­per­oni-stud­ded pies. The piemak­ers de­liver high-qual­ity, thin-crust Neapoli­tan pizza at top speed. The pizza is (not sur­pris­ingly) a great com­ple­ment the to craft brews at the bar. 229 Geary Ave.

BLOOD BROTH­ERS

The beers at Blood Broth­ers stand out for their orig­i­nal­ity and ex­e­cu­tion. The sour op­tions are fan­tas­tic: nei­ther too sweet nor too tart. Brews, such as the Par­adise Lost yuzu gose made with Mal­don sea salt and yuzu juice, re­tain their crisp, sat­is­fy­ing flavour un­til the end. 165 Geary Ave.
