Christmas dinner options!!
Good morning! I need some help gathering ideas for a family coming to spend Christmas with their son. He is attending U of Guelph for a year and they will be arriving in Toronto from the UK on the 20 of December and staying at a short-term rental apartment in the Yorkville area over Christmas. His mom has told him to get on it!
I'm sure most hotels would offer a Christmas dinner, but does anyone know of any other options??
I don't know the The Old Mill Inn and Spa would fit your definition as it's not quite a hotel, but they have a Christmas Day Dinner Buffet for 51.95.
Chinatown's also an option as many places will be open, though obviously nothing fancy like a typical turkey dinner.
Since they are staying in a short term rental apartment they may want to think of getting Christmas dinner to go and heating it up / eating at home (as I assume they will have a kitchen). Pretty sure Pusateries, All the Best, Thuet etc will be doing full take out dinners where you order based on the number of people you need to feed. They serve sliced turkey, stuffing, gravy, usually a choice of starch and veg. I think desserts are also an option with these meals.
Cafe Buloud and Franks at AGO are doing Christmas Dinners. They both have a price fixe menu. Cafe Buloud is in Yorkville so it would be easy to go.
From my memory, George should also have a set Christmas dinner.
I hired a young chef\butcher to make last year's dinner. He did the shopping, prep and got the meal into the oven. He left me with instructions. There was minimal clean up, not a lot of stress and it all went without a hitch. We planned the menu together. I am sure there would be a number of assistant chefs who would look to do a similar arrangement.
