Help! Ultra?

I have a short notice dinner to plan for 20 people on Saturday- any ideas on a good resto? They're coming from out of town and are willing to spend- not George expensive, but not Hot House cheap either. We tried to get Luma, if that's any indication of price point, but they were having a bachelorette party @ the time I need.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Origin (though it can get very noisy if you all want to catch up)? Le Select is quieter and should be able to handle a group that large at short notice. Utra is a nightclub, if that's what you're after.

      Recently attended a great dinner party at Malena on Avenue Road in their private dining room. The room at Origin is nice but I think it seats up to 12 or something like that. Any particular type of cuisine or atmosphere you looking for?

        Malena did a great job for us (slightly smaller group)... and I definitely second this recommendation.

        Ultra is definitely not what we're after then. Looking for a place with pizzazz (media types love the pretty), but with good food and ambiance.

      3. If not Luma than what about one of the other O&B properties, if I recall correctly the cafe at Front and Yonge has a private room.
