I will have 2 nights in Toronto. My first night I will be going to Sassafraz and my second night I'm thinking Ici Bistro or Campagnolo any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

    For starters, cancel your reservation fro Sassafraz. If you can get a reservation at Ici, then go to both Ici and Campagnolo.

      seconded. any restaurant that advertises itself as "the place to see and be seen" isn't taking it's food very seriously. Ici is great. Campagnolo puts out a decent meal

        Yup. Another broken record. Skip Sass and go straight for Ici & Camp.

          I'm jumping on this rec! Sassafraz ick. Boring food at best and overpriced.

                There are so many better choices than sassafraz - curious - why is that your "must go to" place?

                    There are so many the list would be long. Sassfraz is really not a place for ppl who care about food. It is far more about scence. In the area I would say that Caren's Wine Bar, Malena, and Mistura are much much better just to name a few.
