    1. It's that time of the year again. We have historically gone to the Old Mill but are looking for something new - has anyone been to the Studio Cafe at the Four Seasons or the Intercontinental?



      1. I went to Studio Cafe for the first time in the summer (for Summerlicious). This may or may not be reflective of their usual menu, but the meal I had was quite good. The best part was dessert - they had an awesome panna cotta with a lemon grass sauce that I loved.

        1. Studio Cafe is great now and has been for years. Pretty room, professional service, good selection in food and wine. Reservations a must.

          1. I went to Truffles (not Studio Cafe) on Dec 25th Christmas dinner. It was such an awesome meal ~ food and ambiance was just excellent. You may also want to consider that. It definitely requires reservations.
