Restaurants for birthday dinners in Toronto?

A group of us use our birthdays as an excuse to try out the high-end restaurants in Toronto. We're starting to run out of places we know we want to try and are looking for suggestions.

Places we've already been for birthday meals:

- North 44
- Canoe
- Amuse Bouche
- Thuet
- Joso's
- Barberian's Steak House
- Mildred Pierce

We were planning on C5 but it's booked. We're thinking of Jamie Kennedy at the Gardiner. Any other suggestions?

        I would have to second the Spendido suggestion.

      2. Scaramouche and Celestin are wonderful restaurants.

        I've heard good things about Perigee in the Distillery District as well.

        1. Agreeing with above posters: Splendido, Scarmouche, Perigee (though they have changed the setup since I was last there, and part of the charm may be gone)

            Don't know if Auberge du Pommiers has re-opened since their renovation (am not in Toronto at present) but along with Scaramouche it is really good. We have never had a meal that could be faulted in any is 'special' and we reserve it, along with Scaramouche, as our personal 2 top restaurants that we do the 'big celebration night' at!

              I've herd that the original chef at Perigee has also recently left.
