Birthday Rec's for the Weekend
Hey i'm trying to decide on a restaurant to go to for my birthday this weekend but i'm not really sure where?
Most of my friends are students so we are on a limited budget i would prolly say no more than $30 a person
I am looking mostly for restaurants Downtown as it would be easier for all of us to get to.
Some restaurants i was looking at
Il Fornello (Never been here but i've heard it's good by some people)
Lee (i like this restaurant but not sure if it would fit the $30 budget)
Biff's Bistro (Never been to this place either but heard it was good and looking at the menu online i think it would JUST fit our budget)
4 Front St. E, Toronto, ON M5E 1B2, CA
I find Il Fornello not so great. I used to have lots of work lunches there and could never understand why people liked it. I think Lee and Biff's might be pretty tight to fit under $30, unless no one plans to order an app or dessert. My recommendation would be to go to Sidecar on College St. If you can wait until Sunday, they have a fantastic prix fixe deal -- 3 courses for $25. But even on Friday or Saturday, the prices are really reasonable (you can easily get 2 courses for under $30) and the restaurant has a great vibe and is on College St., so you could wander Little Italy afterwards. If you want to go really budget, I would recommend Negroni (which is actually a sister restaurant to Sidecar). Really wonderful panini, inexpensive wines by the glass ($5!) and great service. You could do a starter, a panini with salad, a dessert and a glass of wine for under $30. There's a long thread about it on the board if you want to read more.
