good eating spot for Tuesday night.. not too loud?
trying to set up some friends and so going on a casual "double date" on tuesday night (8:45-ish). was thinking 416 snack bar but i hear the place is small, noisy and crowded.. will that be the case on a tuesday?
can anyone suggest a place downtown that has some good food (with some vegetarian options - i'm the only veg of the group), is conducive to conversation that doesn't require too much yelling and is open till at least 11pm?
Marben or Richmond Station or Gabardine if you want a resto proper. Queen & Beaver if you're okay with pub-ish (very refined and British pub mind you).
How about Woodlot - much easier to get a table on a Tuesday, great vegetarian menu and a warm, buzzy yet "talkable" atmosphere?
thanks for the recos!
i wanted to find some place with a lower price point because of the awkwardness of who is gonna be paying since it is a date set-up, etc.. if they insist on paying, i don't want it to be too expensive (whereas if we split it, i am fine with the cost). awkwardness of first dates and all. :)
some other ideas i was thinking initially:
so, that kinda price point. i love some of the places mentioned, like woodlot, but mains are in the 20s so it could get costly..
any other ideas?
County General ($13-18 for mains, kitchen closes at 11pm)
La Carnita (better choice than Playa I think. The wait on a Tuesday should be no more than 30min)
Kalendar & Utopia (not adventurous, but solid food. Easy on the wallet)
I love 416, but it is what it is - a snack bar, not filling food. The noise level is actually quite tolerable on week days.
