Need a special dinner place!
Two ex-Toronto couples (very good friends) are coming back from the west coast to join me and my wife for dinner on Mon. Jan. 21.
We'd like to take them somewhere new, comfortable, conversation-friendly, with great food.
The six of us have been a lot to JK Wine Bar, Batifole, Beer Bistro, Gio's, Thuet, Lee, Globe.
so we'd like to avoid them. (although we love them).
We also don't want to get into the Susur, North 44, Bymark, Canoe kind of place from a spending point of view.
We're coming from Riverdale, but don't mind going downtown or even - gasp! - West.
Thanks in advance.
What about Mistura, or slightly less expensive, Pastis? Another thought would be L'Unita at Ave and Dav. All of these are comfortable, have great food and are conversation friendly.
What about Imperia? It's new, sounds comfy and the food is good, according to the thumbs up from Googs on this thread -
And it's open Mondays. Here's a review from the Globe -
17 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M4W1L1, CA
Chiado is nice - it's in the west end w valet pkg. Or try Spuntini's in Yorkville for livelier place where a conversation can still be had. A bit star-struck owners though.
