Looking for suggestions on some upscale places to bring
clients during a convention next month.
Thanks in advance,
JK

    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
    think!

      I AGREE WITH ALL OF JENNIFERS SUGGESTION,
      HOWEVER, SCARAMOUCHE IS JUST A FEW BLOCKS UP
      AVENUE ROAD ( AT BEBVENITO PLACE) FROM YORKVILLE.
      ALSO, YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK OUT "TORONTO LIFE"
      MAGAZINE, THEY DO MANY AND ACCURATE REVIEWS AND
      A RECENT POSTING BY GARY CHOENG (sp) ON TORONTO
      RESTAURANTS.
      CORDIALLY,

        Thanks for mentioning my recent post, but JK wanted upscale restaurants for business situations. My stuff was more for exploring in the outskirts of Toronto.

    2. 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
