Bassel’s Restaurant/Yonge and Gerrard

Bassel's Restaurant/Yonge and Gerrard
Like the Silver Rail at Yonge and Shuter, Bassel’s was another bar on the strip that is sadly missed. Here’s a collection of photos over the years. Originally Bassel’s Lunch it evolved into Bassel’s Restaurant and Tavern and lasted until at least 1977 (the first time I visited).

  3. Does anyone know if Bassel’s had a smaller restaurant near Yonge and Lawrence, or was Gerrard the only location?
