I am looking for a restaurant in Toronto.
My boyfriend and I have very different taste.
He likes meaty food with tons of flavour; I on the other hand like simple comfort food with flavour.
I was inquiring about finding a restaurant that has maybe both of those.
My idea of romantic is cozy not to loud but with people around and it not stuffy.
I hope this all helps and if anyone has ideas thank you
I'd suggest any of Woodlot, Beast, Weezie's, Harbord Room and maybe Enoteca Sociale ("maybe" only because I haven't tried it yet but it gets a good amount of love on the board and reviews are consistent with all of your points).
354 King St E, Toronto, ON M5A1K9, CA
89 Harbord St, Toronto, ON M5S1G4, CA
1288 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6J, CA
I took my bf to Jump this year for his birthday. It was fantastic. They have a large menu with all sorts of options. I told them it was for a birthday on reservation and they gave us a quiet corner away from the main core of the restaurant. The service was fantastic.
Also, not sure when you are going, but Summerlicious is coming up so you can get a 3 course for $35. (But your limited on selection)
so far i like the sounds of enoteca sociale, i love the looks of the menu!! but curious to know if there will be enough dishes with meat i know he love pasta but wonders if there is enough meat/flavor
beast sonds neat with the idea of making your own menu with the chef based on an animal, will they do this for two?
also what kinf of food does woodlot have ?
weezies sounds good but cant closed on sundays
i failed to mention where going on a sunday
i am still looking for a few more before i make a finale descion
thank you all who have helped so far
anymore ideas welcomed
On Sunday at Enoteca it is a nonna's set menu family style so I'd avoid that location. I think Splendido is closed Sunday's and Beast is only open for brunch on Sunday.
Woodlot is a good option. They have a decided veggie menu and a meat menu and you order your sides separately.
I suggest looking at Globe Bistro on the danforth.
Le Rossignol on Queen street East.
Torito in Kensington.
All three have really lovely patio for summer evening dinning.
88 Harbord Street, Toronto, ON M5S 1G5, CA
276 Augusta Ave, Toronto, ON M5T2L9, CA
what do u mean by the nonna menu on sunday for sociala
Globe Bistro not so much
Le Rossignol not so much
Torito looks good but he wouldent go for it
so i have a few other ideas, maybe a place that has a decent amount of pasta, we dont care for wine, comfert food, cozy place, romantic.
thanks again all who have tried
i saw a few pictures of woodlot looks rather intersting, its a maybe
i should have mentioned he likes to eat a huge portion of food for dinner no small
Woodlot will not have huge portions as that's not what that resto is about so I would skip that.
The family style dinner on Sunday means that it is not platted but brought to your table on a platter(s) and then you serve yourself. The portions are often larger but you don't get to select your items or there are a limited number of items to chose from - ie veg or meat.
Maybe you should try a nice high end steakhouse. He can get a giant steak and all the sides he wants and you can have something smaller and simple? Sunday's are always a challenge. My BF is a chef and his place is only closed on Sunday's so we are forever trying to find something new and/or exciting for Sunday nights out.
