Cozy, warm restaurant for Christmas Eve or general Winter dining
We're trying to think of a cozy spot for dinner in our cold winter. Think dark-ish room with maybe candle-lit corners. No draughts from the open door. Delicious, rib-sticking dishes to make you feel a little drowsy and happy with the world at large. Pricing less important, though would love it to be in the $20-$30 mains range or less.
Where do I need to go?
Finally made it to Weezie's last night and immediately thought of your post...
Though we were seated by the window and there was a teeny bit of a draft, the heat was cranked, and I was utterly toasty warm and cozy, while the snow fell outside. Even the basement bathroom was warm and cozy...
Really enjoyed the food too (perhaps I should have mentioned that first?). Apps (salt cod cakes, and frisee salad with deep fried poached egg and lardons) were good but a bit on the not-so-exciting side. Mains really stood out -- possibly the best burger I've ever had (so moist and flavourful) and scallops (perfectly seared, and accompanied by cherry tomatoes and some lovely, creamy scalloped-ish potatoes). Shared the pecan pie for dessert and it too was excellent -- heavy on the pecans, not-so heavy on the sugary filling, resulting in a lovely, not-too-sweet pie.
And the price is definitely right. Only two of the mains on the menu were over $20.
Also, service was excellent.
I think you could consider The Corner House Restaurant on Davenport Road..it's very cozy and the service and food are lovely..it's in an old converted house, parking on the street...need a reservation for sure on Christmas Eve. Don't remember the 'price point' offhand but not wildly costly in my opinion.
