Saturday, February 14 - help !
A friend wants to take me out for lunch on the 14th but, unfortunately, it's Valentine's Day. She wants to take me somewhere really special as it is an important birthday for me (75 !).
She's asked me where I'd like to go butt I cannot think of anywhere on the Saturday. There used to be a great buffet at the King Eddie but they only do that on a Sunday.
Anyone got any ideas? I thought of Nota Bene but not too sure. The the Four Seasons but, again, brunch is on the Sunday except for the Antipasti buffet in Avenue - don't fancy that.
Needs to be downtown as she's coming from the West end of the city and I live in the North end
I had a great experience at JK Gardiner but perhaps it may not seem "special" enough for your friend and the occasion. It is after all an upscale museum restaurant. The room is almost completely surrounded by glass, which is lovely, nice view. But I was there about this time last last year and the sun coming through was so strong my friend had to wear sunglasses. I would go back in a jiffy (loved the food) but not so sure if it's the best place to celebrate a 75th birthday.
Have you considerd Studio Cafe?

Frank in the AGO would be nice. Or C5 in the ROM. I think JK Gardiner is more special if you can ever hit their Friday dinners.
