Looking for "it" spot with great food

I'm planning a birthday dinner with a few friends in Toronto. We haven't managed to try many new places in the last year, so we're looking for a hot spot that has great food too, so we can have a fun night out! Place should offer a good menu selection to suit varying tastes, price is not really an issue.

  1. "it" spot meaning trendy?...where a lot of people will be hanging around to socialize?

    1. Not hanging around to socialize, I meant "it" as in popular because its new and good.

      1. Czehoski would fit that criteria.

          I just read that the chef broke his arm and isn't working there right now (thanks estufarian). It was on my list before that!

            oh, that's too bad then, what about Jamie Kennedy's Wine Bar or Perigee? If money is not an issue.
            Also, I've heard Caren's Wine Bar in Yorkville is a new trendy spot that is good.

              True - his arm is in a cast and he can't cook. But he is still 'in attendance' - supervising and plating.

          2. JKWB and Perigee are both great. I would recommend that as I am sure a lot of fellow chowhounds would too. Another suggestion is Splendido...not brand new but the experience is to die for.


            1. pretentious (i happen to like those places) cool places with good food:

                Avoid Lobby!!! It's a no man's land right now. I think it was trendy about 3 weeks...
