Poor Student celebrating Birthday...
I need to find a reasonably priced ($20-$30/person for dinner and 1 drink) restaurant that is located near club district.
I would love to take my friends somewhere where the food is delicious, the service is friendly and the ambiance is trendy.
I don't know where the current "hot spots" are right now. Does anyone have any suggestions?
As far as types of food: Anything goes.
Hmm, trendy + good food + clubland + reasonable prices...not sure a place like that exists ;)
I like Peter Pan on Queen - service has always been friendly and the food is decent. It's not too expensive either (I had my b-day dinner there) - it fits your price range. It's not exactly trendy, but it's not dowdy either. Also, I had dinner at Fez once a while back - passable food, decent prices, and it's especially fun if you're in the little room in the restaurant area.
Go to Laide.. food is amazing, service is incredibly friendly and the ambiance is definatly one of a kind...
Laide is at 138 Adelaide St East two blocks east of Yonge.
All menu item are under $14 -
Soft braised duck leg and cassoulet - $12
Spiced eight vegetable roti - $8
Tiger prawns and sweet pea risotto, peach schnapps - $12
Bar rail drinks and beer are $5

No, I do not work there or have ownership in it. It is a favorite place of mine, that is it...
If you notice in the past week or so I have also posted about Fune, Canoe (Visitor needs romantic restaurant recs), Provence, Pusateri's, the Strand, Ho Su, Kubo & Tomi-Kro...
(Search for "Rob" on the main page and you will find my posts)
I did not (and would not) recomend Laide for the person looking for a romantic dinner for two on an anniversary. But for a student looking for some fun on a birthday it is a great place.
I eat out a lot and like to give honest recomendations. I also like to give as much information as possible like links to websites (if a place has one) so that people can get more information then just what I say...
