Help! Parents coming for dinner during TIFF
My parents (in their early 60s) are coming up from the States (Philadelphia) for the weekend to catch some of TIFF, visit generally, etc.
I'd like to take them out for a nice meal that feels very much like Toronto without being too expensive, or without making them feel like they're too old.
I'd like to show them something interesting, probably North American food, but Mediterranean of various sorts is also usually a hit and that's not going to be a zoo during the festival.
Any ideas as to where I should take them?
I think that Loire on Harbord would fit the bill. It is French but the menu is very accessible and the location is out of the way of the festival but still very much a downtown Toronto experience for them.
I've been a few times and there have always been older people in the room. The service is good and the food is tasty and a good value for money price point.

How about tundra in the Hilton. Dine.to website has a coupon for them. Close to tiff action but not too busy and with localvore sense.
