Valentine's Help?

I've been given the task of getting the big boss a reservation for Valentine's Day, but on the Saturday before (Feb 12th)

King West
no sushi (she's pregnant)
fancy fancy!
price is wide open

any suggestions?

  1. Splendido or George would be my fancy-fancy rec, but neither are King West.

    So, on King West:

    Lee Lounge might be open by then. Not sure. Susur back in the house and all that. Less formal dining, I'm going to assume.

    I love Buca, but it's trendy-fancy, not fancy-fancy. Loud. Good pig's ears. Pastas are okay-to-good, but expensive.

    Jacob's & Co. - Steak house though.

    There are maybe a couple more. Can't think of them at the moment.

    88 Harbord Street, Toronto, ON M5S 1G5, CA

    Jacobs & Co
    12 Brant Street, Toronto, ON M5V 2M1, CA

    601 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V1M5, CA

    604 King St. West, Toronto, ON M5V 1M6, CA

    1. re: jlunar

      If King West is the only area she wants to explore I'd go with Jacob and Co. Nothing else in that area is fancy fancy.

    2. Marben (newly revamped), Le Select (French bistro), Victor and Blowfish (there is plenty of cooked food on the menu in addition to what was newfangled sushi when it opened) are other somewhat fancy options near/on King West. I'm suggesting them not because I consider them fancy fancy (for fancy fancy, I agree w jlunar's recs of Splendido or George, or would recommend driving uptown for Auberge du Pommier), but because one person's "fancy fancy! " might be another person's upscale/moderate.

      1. On Queen West there's Noce ... high end Italian. But I'd probably goes east and head to George.
