Dinner Saturday night

I am looking for a place to have dinner Saturday night, something with entrees in the 25-40 dollar range. No asian/sushi.

Can be downtown, uptown, don't really want to go outside the city though.

Any suggestions?

      significant other and his brother and sister in law.

      everyone will eat pretty much anything. we wanted something funky/trendy.

        Don't know how you feel about tapas, but I definitely think Kultura falls into your
        "funky/trendy" stipulation. Each dish is inexpensive (by Toronto standards) and you end up ordering about 5 per person. When I went, it was just $200 for two, including multiple glasses of wine. The space is gorgeous, and there's a lounge downstairs where you can have some after-dinner bevvies.

    2. I don't think Kultura fits into the price range. hmmm.

        It doesn't fit? $25-40 just for the entree. Almost everything in this city is in or below this range. Only a handful, literally, are above.

 you mean it's not pricey ENOUGH? IMHO, it's one of the less expensive "trendy" options in the city.

            whoopsy- I've only been once for some apps and drinks- I must have *misremembered*- sorry and thanks for setting it straight.

        2. Pangaea seems to be a good option, the dining room has good atmosphere, and the entrees were in the $40 range from what I remember, and they have killer desserts too.

          1. What about Brassai on King or Fuzion on Church. Very Trendy and the food is always good.

              Does Fuzion have a website, I tried to find one but couldn't.

            2. i'm not sure if this really falls within what you want... because trendy can mean a lot of things, but i'd like to throw in amuse bouche ( as an option. the atmosphere is dominated by the fantastic service and chic bold red and black decor. it's cozy and lends to romantic while also working well for a great night out with friends. if you're looking for some after dinner drinks to go late into the evening, move on up to wqueenw for a multitude of options.
