Help with Bloor West/High Park Restaurant Suggestions

Not a Toronto native/resident, so I'd be grateful for some assistance... I'll be in town in April to celebrate a great milestone in my sister's life.

She and her spouse live in BWV and also have young children. We want to go out for a festive dinner, but not too far from their home in case the babysitter (or baby(ies)) has a meltdown. I'd think anywhere within 20 minutes or so of the Bloor/Windemere area would be ideal. (walking or driving)

We've enjoyed Dr. Generosity's in the past... but was hoping for something different. Price isn't an issue, and pretty open to cuisine... Just one exception - curries - be they Indian, Thai, Caribbean, Indonesian, etc... Even the smell puts my sister-in-law off...

Doesn’t have to be too upscale, but this is a celebration. Any suggestions you could share, I’d happily consider. Thanks for your time.

  1. I had a really great meal and service recently at The Emerson at Bloor/Landsdowne. Its comfort food, but executed well and elevated a bit. d

      1. Camp on Jane is normally a brunch spot but does dinner Friday night. Cute place, good food, not expensive.

        1. I sense it doesn't get lotsa love on here, but I am a fan of the Kennedy for a celebration. Had birthday drinks and snacks there last month and it was a good time!

          1. What about an old-school steak house? Black Angus is just that. Nothing too flashy or fancy, just great steaks. Not overly expensive, but you can spend a fair deal.

            Roughly Bloor and Islington.
