Idea(s) needed...

Poorboy May 3, 2007 10:02 PM

We are hosting a rather intimate party hopefully on Sunday June 10 for 3 hours (3PM to 6PM) , approx. 25 people.
Private room needed.
Must be wheelchair accessible.
Buffett is OK.
Will have an open bar , but no real big drinkers.

Hoping for something in the East to Central area.

Any thoughts?

    Were you looking for a restaurant or a rental facility where you can bring in catering & alcohol? Could you define your borders of "east to central area" a little more?

      Restaurant with a private area.
      Victoria to Yonge Street, North to Eglinton, South to Lakeshore.

        Victoria Park? Victoria to Yonge is all of a block!

      I hope someone else can help with the private room & open Sunday aspects.

      As far as finding accessible places, the most reliable free source is Now Magazine. Their two-tiered access rating covers barrier free and barrier free except washrooms. I would still recommend a site inspection to verify the info. Why all sources, including Toronto Life, don't consider accessible washrooms important to the dignity of patrons is still a mystery to me.

        Found a place that was not too busy and has a decent menu for a Toronto get together.
        It's called the Granit Brewery and is in the Mt. Pleasant/Eglinton area. http://www.granitebrewery.ca/
        Parking is not an issue, even in that area, and the quality of food and price is very scalable according to budget.
        Thanks for all of the suggestions.
