Help me narrow down a birthday dinner choice.

  • 4

Hi,

Trying to decide on a restaurant for my girlfriend's birthday tomorrow night.

She has told me to surprise her so my last minute decision making is not a big deal-haha.

We are both in our mid-20's and will eat anything but for this meal I prefer to focus on Italian/French/Mediterranean...

Looking to try something new so that leaves Sidecar, Note Bene, and Black Hood...

Of all the ideas below which would be best for a fun yet romantic couple birthday dinner.

Marben
Buca
Beast
Noce

  1. I'd go Beast. Best food, more romantic (quiet/intimate). Buca is much larger and louder, but has great atmosphere if that's your thing.

      How about Malena? We're going there on Wednesday for a special anniversary. The menu looks amazing and I've heard good things. http://www.malena120.ca/our_story

        That does look cool

        I went with Buca but Beast is top of my list

    2. I would personally enjoy Buca - great funghi pizza. Great restaurant vibe and service
