Place to reconnect with busy husband in Toronto?
Looking for a quiet, reasonably priced ($50/person) location for dinner in Toronto. Any suggestions?
Cafe Pleiades on Mt Pleasant (few blocks South of Eglinton);
or Avant Gout almost opposite Summerhill Liquor Store on Birch.
I second Avant Gout (save room for the creme brule and/or the cinnamon ice cream....mmmmmmm...that'll put hubby in a good mood)and also add Pop Bistro on Queen St East (had a really good whole grilled fish there not too long ago). If you are farther north, try Zucca at Yonge south of Eglinton for great Italian and even better service.
I also like Caju on Queen West for a relaxed, Brazilian-inspired meal. Chef Mario Cassini is from Belo Horizonte and his picanha steak and mocqueca fish stew are wonderful dishes to unwind over, reconnect and enjoy a caiprinha or two. The pao de queijo (hot mini-cheese breads) he serves at the beginning of the meal will get the salivary glands going! My favourite little carb treats!
