Four dinners in Toronto?
We'll be in Toronto for 4 nights and are looking for 4 terrific dinners. We like fine dining with great food and pleasant (not too noisy) ambiance. Since we have excellent Asian food at home we'd prefer other cuisines...regional, seafood, Italian, French, etc. We'll be staying at the Park Hyatt in Yorkville, so nearby is a plus. Where would you go for 4 great dinners?
Momofuku Shoto (can be a bit noisy, though)
Jacobs & Co. (urban steakhouse)
And either Auberge du Pommier or Scaramouche to round it off.
Those are all very nice restaurants, in different parts of the city, so you'll get good exposure to a few different areas. Scaramouche also has a great view of the city (although the decor is fairly dated).
Splendido, Auberge and Scaramouche are all french, so you might also consider Tutti Matti for some high-end(ish) italian fare.
Splendido - one of the finest in Toronto, and it's near you. Go with the tasting + wine pairing
Chiado - Amazing Portugese. 10 min cab ride from you. Get the seafood platter and trust your waiter's recommendations.
Woodlot - beautiful, understated food. Phenomenal breads - yet they they manage to keep everything light, easy, and clean.
Black Hoof - bring your inner carnivorous selves here. No reservation. Wait is not terrible if you go on weekdays, before 6. Head over to the wine bars across street when you are waiting. Get the bone marrow and whatever foie they have on the menu.
Nothing wrong with the other suggestions so far but some alternatives
Edulis - Spanish country food (sort of)
Enoteca Sociale, George, Canoe, Joso's (Croatian-style seafood,and the best quality and best tasting seafood I've found in Toronto), Chiado (Portuguese seafood, also high quality, but I give the edge to Joso's).
For French, Le Paradis in the Annex and Pastis on Yonge are relatively close to the Hyatt.
John & Sons on Yonge south of St. Clair is good option for Canadian-style seafood.
I haven't been yet, but Actinolite is on my wishlist.
