Chiado is a delicous but very upscale portugese restaurant - it is beautiful and sophisticated - trust me I spent two years eating my way through NYC and this is pretty close to some of their best. Also, Pastis is delicous, French food - really good. Jov is a great bistro less fancy but very impressive - book a week in advance they only accept that way. Scaramouche is a classic and delicous place. Good luck
I was there last month and although I only ate there
once, I thought the food at Pangaea (Bay, off Bloor)
was the best and most interesting upscale dining.
Prego (Avenue and Bloor) is a scene (if your clients
might be impressed) and the food is actually
consistently good and they have an impressive wine
list. If you're not opposed to hotel dining, Truffles
in the Four Seasons is good for an upscale dining
experience. I didn't try the Courtyard Cafe in the
Windsor Arms, but it was recommended to me and the
decor is very fancy. Scaramouche and North 44o are
still constantly recommended to me by locals, but they
are a little out of the way if you're staying downtown
or in Yorkville. I'll be interested to hear what you
re: Jennifer Stott
I AGREE WITH ALL OF JENNIFERS SUGGESTION,
HOWEVER, SCARAMOUCHE IS JUST A FEW BLOCKS UP
AVENUE ROAD ( AT BEBVENITO PLACE) FROM YORKVILLE.
