My husband and I are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in early June. We are going to slip away for lunch on the big day (a Friday). Any suggestions for a nice lunch, walking distance from King + John? (I don't mind a good walk, so it can be up to a half hour walk away) We don't get out much, so I don't know what restaurants are tops these days. Thanks!

  1. The garden patio at George is beautiful, and the food is probably just right for such a special occasion lunch. I'd be worried about boisterous corporate lunches at most indoor top tier restaurants in the area, taking away from some of the romance.

    1. You could try Luma in the TIFF right in your hood at King and John Miranda

      1. re: miranda

        I second George, but perhaps pre-book a semi-private upholstered window seat on the south wall.. tres romantique if the weater is not patio favorable. And take a fast cab down Adelaide, get out at Church and Adelaide and surprise her with a pre-arranged silly trinket(anklet?) from a pawn shop one block north of Church and Queen before you go to lunch.

      2. the elevator table at business people will disturb you!

          1. Oh yeah patio at George all the way.
