Need Restaurant recs for Yonge & Bloor area
Hi all, I'm looking for a small and elegant dining spot, possibly with a patio, for a ladies' evening out with comfort in mind for a former bride-to-be who broke it off this weekend. We need privacy, intimacy, elegance and vegan items on the menu, if possible, although most quality places are very accomodating in that regard. One of the guests in my elderly mother who lives in the area and is not very mobile so I would like to stay as close to her home as possible. What say you?
How many are in your party? With a large enough group, might be able to take over the side room of Wish or their patio. In smaller #'s, the front room of Wish might be taken over.
How much privacy? Are you looking for a private room or simply a place without too much traffic coming by your table?
Sorry, I didn't look at the menu. All resto's tend to lag anywhere from 'a bit' to 'I can't believe they didn't think to do that'.
Another Y&B choice would be Imperia at 17 Yorkville. The only thing, and it's a doozy, it that there are about 4 steps up into the resto and the washrooms are in the basement. If your mother isn't very mobile, I wouldn't recommend it. If stairs are okay I most certainly would. There's no patio, but if you secure a table by the front window it's far more secluded than the main dining area south of the bar. You'd also need to curtail Frank the Friendly Owner's regular trips around the tables for your privacy's sake.
Michelles Bistro behind the four seasons is a great spot and very accessible with lots of little quiet corners and a very European feel.
