Girls Night Dinner Recommendations? ASAP

sweet_nothings Jun 29, 2010 04:42 PM

Hey...Our original plan fell through, so we're looking for a cool/unique/out-of-the-ordinary dinner experience for 10-12 for the dinner portion of our night for this Sat, Jul 3 2010. Since our hotel is right downtown...something in the heart of downtown would be great!! We're all in the early-mid 20's age group, so we're ok with anything....as long as the food & atmosphere is good...Nothing too too expensive tho.

We tried the Sultan's tent but its all booked up...any other recos??

Anything goes...any time of cuisine...no chain restuarants/Keg/etc etc...
Something a little different & fun needed!!

    since this is your first post it is a bit difficult to help you with ideas. where are you going pre-dinner and are you here for pride, or the shriners convention or any other 'event'?. which hotel are you at?

    you should be thankful that sultan's tent (and you should look at something less touristy) is booked, but what is your price point?

      How about Bloor St Diner right at Bay/Bloor? You're close enough to Yorkville or the subway to go to other places.

        I agree that more info would help, but a few initial suggestions... Torito for tapas, the Drake (perhaps you could eat on the patio), or Buca for Italian.

          I second these suggestions. Although, I suspect you wouldn't be able to get a reservation for a group that large at Buca with such short notice.

          Actually, I haven't eaten at Supermarket (in Kensington) but I've heard it's pretty decent and you can stay there and dance afterwards, so that might be another option? I think it would also be cheaper than Buca, the Drake, or Torito.

          93 Harbord could probably accommodate a large-ish group. They serve Middle Eastern food, so might be a little more exciting than a chain restaurant.

            Cava for tapas <-- call in advance for reservation. Will probably run $60-70pp so maybe a little out of your price range. Their dessert shop, XocoCava, is great and right next door...

            Roam Little Italy: Call to book the back patio at Sidecar [unsure if you can], walk to Dolce Gelato for dessert, finish off at one of the bars (there's a hookah/shisha bar there too if you're into that)

            If you've never tried it, going for Dim Sum might be fun at Asian Legend, then you can end the night by walking along Queen Street to people watch, walk up Yonge Street then grab ice cream at Marble Slab!
