Old School in Mississagua
My newly retired father-in-law just got engaged, and my partner and I would like to take him and his fiancee out for a meal to celebrate.
They're both British, non-epicurian or gastronomically adventurous, so we're looking for something that serves basic comfort foods like roast beef, meatloaf, pork chops, etc. This will be such a boring meal for me...
The restaurant should be wheelchair accessible, and able to take reservations- neither of the newly betrothed will be able to stand in a line.
I'm stumped! Please help...
There is Le Castile on dundas...near the boarder of mississauga and etobicoke...on the north side, with the torches. Its more like a steakhouse, but the food, from what I remember was served with the basics - salad and starches on the side. I think you can get steak, chicken, turf, mashed potatoes, etc....
Its a large place and I believe they take reservations. Alittle pricey, but the perfect atmosphere to celebrate such an occassion.
I agree with pancake. Nothing is more old school than Le Castile. My partner and I went last spring as a hoot, and it was like being teleported to 1976. Large portions of steak and seafood with formally dressed waiters of a certain age in an incongruous and sprawling Mediterranean "castle".
The food was straightforward and the service was excellent, but I will probably never set foot in there again, unless Tony Soprano drops in and wants a steak nearby.
Thanks for the suggestion Stephen and pancake.
I don't think Le Castille is ideal because they don't eat seafood or steak I know they have roast beef on the menu, but i'd like a place where they might enjoy more than one choice.
I had a date try to impress me once by taking me to Le Castille. I thought the meal was just ok, but the prices were very high for what we got... I found the decor horrid and the old school service attentive but sexist.
What about Barbizon? It's got the 'fancy' versions of basics like pork chops, roasted chicken etc. If I recall correctly, there are no steps from the parking lot to the tables if your reservation is for the ground floor. The decor is not old-school a' la Barberians but more ultra fancy "adult residence" if you know what I mean.
