Focaccia or Wish for Business Lunch?

I need to book a business lunch in the Yonge/Bloor area and from what I've read on this board, it seems like my best bets might be Wish and Focaccia (Pangaea has been ruled out already). Anyone have any thoughts on which one might be better? It will be a fairly casual business lunch with potential clients that I already know. I'm not necessarily looking for a formal place with an upscale menu. Just a place with good food and a cool space.

  1. Focaccia has become a bit worn, but the food is usually pretty reliable (not as good as when the former chef Sam Gaseria was there - now he is at Bloom). But if these aren't people you need to blow away with a crazy modern interior, it's a safe choice.

    Haven't been to Wish in a long time, but the service there doesn't have a great reputation...

      Wish has mediocre service and a very limited menu for lunch.

    2. Given the weather, I might go for something with guaranteed good a/c so maybe Scaccia? or Saigon Sister?
