Planning a business dinner - help!

I am planning two business dinners in Toronto in late September. One for about 10 people and one for six. We're staying downtown (Centre Street West) and want to walk or take a short cab ride. Budget around $90 per person with wine. Fun but not too boisterous so we can talk business. Can you help with suggestions?

  1. Bymark is always my fav suggestion. If you want sushi then there's Ki - both in the financial district.

    1. Where is Centre St. W.? I've never heard of it and can't seem to find it on a map. There's Centre Ave at Dundas and University, but it runs north/south and there's no hotel there...

      I think Bymark might be a pricey for your budget (for 3 courses, probably about $75 before drinks, tax and tip).

      Maybe Nota Bene, David Lee's new restaurant? This is the second time I've suggested it despite the fact that I haven't been; however, the reviews on this board have been great. Unless your guests order the (gulp) $89 33oz rib steak, the average 3 course meal would probably cost about $50-60 before drinks, tax and tip.

      Another option is Vertical, where I've really enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. It'd probably run you about $60 for 3 courses before drinks, tax and tip (though probably more if many of your guests are steak eaters).
