Bachelorette Party

I am trying to organize a bachelorette party for one of my friends. We are looking for a restaurant to go to for dinner for about 10 girls that might have a prix fixe menu somewhere in the city. Could someone suggest any good restaurants? Good food is pretty important as the bride to be is a foodie. Budget would be mid-range. And if you have any suggestions for a bar/club to go after, it would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    Where in the city are you looking? Downtown core? East? West? North York?

      Probably downtown core or Queen/King West but not set on a particular neighbourhood. Suggestions anywhere in the city would be appreciated. Thanks!

        My recommendation for a restaurant/bar combo is heavily bride-dependent.

        1) Bride type #1: (the Bottle Service Bride) For food, I would suggest Buca on King West. Prices are not low but they're reasonable. Especially taking into consideration the beautiful digs, and the quality of food. Ame is another possibility but I haven't tried it personally. Bars: you have your pick on the King W strip (Cheval, Dolce, Spice Route come to mind...)

        2) Bride type #2: (the Anything Goes Bride). Gotta think about food on this one. I'd definitely check out The Gladstone for karaoke (always a fun, eclectic crowd that's game for, say, a cheeky scavenger hunt), or along the Ossington strip you have your pick of scenes as well (Painted Lady is fun though cramped, and Levack has a good dance floor)

        3) Bride type #3: (the Quiet Bride) I know that Caren's Wine Bar will do a prix fixe for $45 a head. I've never eaten there but it's very pretty and private. Drinks at Panorama or Sassafraz afterwards would be easy enough.

      The Beaconsfield for dinner...then the Parkdale Drink or the Social Afterwards. Or for Karaoke, the Gladstone or Cadillac. The prix-fixe at the Beaconsfield was $25pp and it was great.

        You might consider Laide (at Jarvis and Adelaide): http://www.laide.ca/

        Sam Gassira made up a personalized prix fixe menu for our bachelorette party group and the food was delicious!

            No, it was a few (maybe 4 years) back... am I giving outdated info?

              He left Laide at least three years ago.

                Oh. I checked chefdb before posting and it says that he's still presently consulting at Laide. My bad.

          What about Sidecar? Lots of people seem to enjoy the food and the selection of cocktails, and it seems as though it has the right sort of fun vibe. Plus a prix fixe menu:

            Second the idea of Buca.

            If Yorkville is an option, Malena, then Caren's or Avenue for drinks. Malena has an upstairs room which has a couple tables for larger groups.

            If you're looking for a prix fixe, Le Select might be a good bet, and there are lots of lounges & clubs located nearby.

            Might want to also consider the new, 2nd location of La Palette on Queen West. Bar Chef might be a good option for drinks nearby- wasn't really my kind of scene, but they have some neat cocktails on the menu.
