Has anyone started a thread about deals to be had at any of the fine dining restaurants in TO? WIth the downturn in the economy, one would think that bargains abound, but I have only come across a few:
Madeline's - Mon - Wed - $1 corkage fee
Nota Bene - no corkage fee after 9 pm
Please share your bargain finds! It's the least we can do to help the economy!
Um, deals abound in the city:
There are prix fixes almost everywhere; Zucca, Sidecar, Le Paradis, Tati, Crush Wine Bar etc, etc... usually with certain day of the week stipulations.
There is $1 corkage at Crush on Mondays.
Screw the economy, the best thing you can do is support your favourite restaurants as much as possible as I guarantee the axe will continue to fall...
re: Splendid Wine Snob
Totally agree with SWS and wish I could support my favourite restaurants more but unfortunately members of my household have felt the crunch and so we have had to cut back on dining out, although we still indulge in local take-outs like Sultan of Samosas and Olde Yorke, as well as ordering in from Bona occasionally.
A friend went to Bread Bar and said that they had a prix fix menu whose cost per night was based on how the Dow or TSX closed. I am not sure exactly how it works or if it is still on but she said it was amazing (we both love the food there) and it was so much for so little money.
I think the important thing is to keep supporting your well-loved local restaurants. Isn't it worth it to have a lovely meal out once per week, and brown-bag it the rest, than to grab cheap and crappy food court offerings more often?
