Toronto Lunch and or Dinner for two elderly

phelana Jun 3, 2007 01:53 PM

Mom and her 83 year old traveling friend (another lady) want to have a wonderful lunch or dinner. They are staying near the Fairmont. They love fine dining and can afford around 50.00 USD pp (they each have one drink). Any must do tips?

    I haven't been yet, but for a similar relative, I'm thinking about going to the new Jamie Kennedy restaurant in the Gardiner Museum for lunch.

      .....you could also take them to a fantastic tea room. whenever i have elderly relatives visting that always goes down well. the king eddy is really nice,elegant, easily fits your buget with a cocktail and i find the tea as filling as a lunch.

        I second the tea suggestion... I like The Windsor Arms for tea - you can do the full cream tea, which includes your selection of tea, sherry or sparking wine, and finger sandwiches, mini goat cheese tart, pastries, and strawberries and cream. I know it's a stereotype, but I love going with my Mom... The Windsor Arms is on St. Thomas and is actually quite near the Gardiner museum, should you want to do that for dinner...and there is some lovely shopping in that area too.

          Is the restaurant at the Gardiner open for dinner? It wasn't previously. I would rather hope that it is open later - a real bonus.
