3 day trip with 2 kids (tweens) coming up in 2 weeks - Toronto hound
Please critique - we'll have 2 lunches and 3 dinners. Our kids are somewhat adventurous and don't shy away from spice.
So far we have:
Night of arrival - pizza - maybe Don Antonio
Lunch 1 - Babbo
Lunch 2 - Tocqueville
Dinner 1 - Perilla
Dinner 2 - Louro
We don't want to go too much up in price (but obviously willing to go down).
We also thought about the midtown Xian, but we have some pretty good Chinese here in Toronto...not sure if there's anything like it though. Also, we're not into standing in line waiting (although, I know Don Antonio doesn't take reservations).
We come in to the city every year, but this is a first with the kids. We're staying a few blocks north of Times square, but totally willing to subway/cab/walk. Thank you.
Is this all on weekdays? Or spanning a weekend?
Your itinerary is Italian, American, and modern/Portuguese-influenced, I think it would be good to add some variety.
I don't see any breakfasts on your itinerary. Not even Russ & Daughters?
Night of arrival maybe do Shake Shack, Toloache, or Ma Peche instead?
Lunch 2, you could try Momofuku Ssam Bar or Mission Chinese, which are far easier to get into for lunch than dinner. Motorino also does a great lunch prix fixe and tends to be much quieter than at dinner.
Dinner 1, perhaps Kin Shop instead of Perilla.
