What's a good place for groups 10 - 20 people in north end of Toronto?
I need a place to have a b-day dinner in the central but north end (northwards of Yonge & Bloor, maybe even NY, Thornhill or Richmond Hill). Cuisine can be anything except sushi & primarily fish. Would love to keep the price medium (say entrees at $15 - $25). Party room would be nice but not necessary as along a large group wouldn't interfere with the ambience of the restaurant in general.
Thanks a bunch.
I've had great meals at both Grano and Zee Grill on Mount Pleasant. I've had a big group each time. The fish at Zee Grill is lovely, so it's highly recommended. Both meals I've had were in the summer, however, and on the back patio, so you should check with them on the space they have indoors.
Given that the OP said "not primarily fish", that rules out Zee Grill. Plus Zee grill is at the high end of the budget and over for some of the dishes.
mzdee, do you like Middle Eastern food? Tabule is really good, well priced and the atmosphere is buzzing enough that a large group would fit in just fine. I've never eaten there in a large group, but others who have indicated on this board that the experience was great.
You could try the convivial little back alley way of Spacco. I've been to a couple of large group outings there (typically in the summer - great patio) The food's moderate as well as the price. But there are pool tables, and an adjoining jazz club for the wanderers in the group. Grano also offers a unique environment with the food being better than Spacco's.
