Quick help! And a comment

  • e

We're arriving in Toronto tomorrow (Friday) on a lastminute trip and I was wondering if you could recommend a good restaurant, maybe Italian? Just not French. We're going to Le Select on Friday night and need to find a good place (we're open to any type of food really) for Saturday that won't require a jacket or tie.

We called Perigee for a reservation and the guy who answered the phone was incredibly gruff and rude. A total turn-off. They're not getting my money! At least not this trip.

Susur sounds interesting but is it similar to Rain? I wasn't all that impressed with Rain. I also doubt we could get in on such short notice.

Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Hey -- if you ever want Ottawa recommendations, let me know!

  1. Try Mistura on Davenport. Friendly friendly staff, including Massimo the chef, and consistently great food. Can't go wrong with Boba, either.

      Thanks, John, I'll check them out.

      Much appreciated!

    2. And bummer about Perigee. It's really good and FUN, and the staff were all so nice and friendly when I went.
