Retirement lunch options???

I'm trying to come up with ideas on where to have a retirement lunch for a colleague next May (2011). I expect the group to be about 30-40 people. I would like something within easy driving distance from Scarborough and with ample parking....which I think excludes most of Downtown. I've been to the Duncan House and while acceptable would like other options. I'm also considering the School of Fine Dining in Unionville. I would've opted for something more ethnic/cultural but I think for such a large group it's better to go with classical/Canadian fare. A private room would be a bonus but isn't a must have. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. We went to The School last March and thought it was much superior to the Duncan House.

    1. The rooms might be a bit too big for your group but, if not, Scarborough Golf Club could be an option. Right in Scarborough, lots of parking. Decent, but not great, food.

        Thanks for the tip. I suspect I'm the only foodie in the group so food probably only needs to be passable although ideally I get great food, great scenery/atmosphere and a great deal.....not going to happen, I know. We went to Glow for Christmas lunch today....better than I expected considering I really dislike Pickle Barrel food......I did go safe with the philly steak sandwich.
