Halloween Dinner at Southern Accent

The Southern Accent is the perfect restaurant for Halloween. We have been there for Halloween for each of the last 3 years and it was great. Halloween originally has its roots as a pagan holiday. Since pagan holidays have ties to New Orleans and Cajun/Creole cuisine, this restaurant is the appropriate choice for a Halloween dinner. The restaurant is one of the few Cajun/Creole restaurants in Toronto and has received several accolades, and the owner of the restaurant, Frances Wood, has made several trips to New Orleans for inspiration for the restaurant’s dishes.

The address of the restaurant is:

Southern Accent

595 Markham Street

Toronto, ON M6G 2L7


Everyone’s big question probably is should I come in a costume?

YES, Definitely, but it is not required. Actually, though, this event was purposely scheduled on Halloween Day in order to give people extra incentive to dress up.

TTC Directions:

Subway to Bathurst. Then walk west on Bloor to Markham Street. Then walk a block south on Markham Street to the restaurant.

Meetup Fee:

There is a $2 per person Meetup fee for this event.

Restaurant Menu:

The restaurant has a 3 course prie fixe menu for $27.50 plus tax and gratuity.

Meetup Etiquette:

If you RSVP “yes” and change your mind about attending, please update your RSVP.

Those who RSVP “yes” are expected to show up.

You are expected to be at the event on time. In situations where you are late and the restaurant is full, your seat will be given away and not held, so please be on-time.

Attendance will be taken at all events and “no shows” will be tracked.

A person may be removed from the group for repeatedly being a “no show”.

A person who changes their RSVP to “no” with less than 3 hours before the start of an event without a good reason will be considered a “no show”.

A person who just briefly shows up at the event but does not stay at the restaurant for the meal will still be considered a “no show”.

Sample Menu from our Meetup at the Restaurant for Halloween 2012 (subject to change this year):

To Start

Soup of the day or cup of gumbo

      Yeah maybe too small a room for that many people? Or perhaps some standing mingling before would have been better? Missed talking to you Sue

    I wish the seating had been better, since I was stuck in a corner all evening!

    Yes, Sue, I agree. It was my first event with the group & we were crowded sitting so close side-by-side at the table. Similarly, it would have been nice to be able to talk to some others & not just those sitting in immediate proximity. I apologize for leaving before dinner but I was there for almost an hour.

    Hi Susan,
    There will be a couple of choices for appetizer, entree, and dessert. The restaurant periodically changes their menu so not all the choices are finalized. But I have posted a sample menu from our Meetup at the restaurant last year, which will probably change slightly this year.
