Naples and Bonita Springs restaurants

I would like to dine out every night for the 9 days that I'm in Bonita Springs with my friend next week. We both enjoy fish, chicken and mostly lighter, fresh meals. I am flexible with price. Also any live music or happening bars for mid-50's girls?

"Don't you dare leave Toronto without tasting....." a.k.a. Please help your neighbor to the south plan the perfect food-focused looong weekend.

I was at Edulis a month ago for a fabulous meal. I asked the owner about reservations and she said that you should always call 'the day of' in case there are cancelations. I loved the place and the food!

Dinner in Kleinburg before McMichael Gallery

Looking for a place to have a light dinner before taking in Ansel Adams and the live jazz on Thursday night at McMichael. It's for my girlfriend and myself--middle-aged ladies. Thanks, Kris

Dinner suggestions for Sunday Jan. 27th for 3 downtown or west end--83 yr old is joining us so should be easy accessible and not too loud--no price limit

Thank you--just can't be too 'funky' as my 83 yr old mom is paying and she's doesn't 'get' the 'new style' ambiance sometimes - dislikes the place before even eating.

Mom wants to take us out for dinner to celebrate my b-day on a Sunday. Some restaurants aren't open and others are part of Winterlicious, so busy. As well, the noise factor can be a problem. Price is not a problem. Thanks.

Burlington Ontario restaurants

We're looking to meet another couple for dinner in the next two weeks around the Burlington area since we are driving in from West Toronto and they are coming from St.Catharines. We would refer not to pay more than $125 per couple.

The Junction Restaurants

Yes, I ended up reserving there for dinner as it was getting pretty full, so I didn't want to chance it, partly because of the weather as well. The meals are ok, not great. The entertainment is usually wonderful however.

Thanks..I've been to Barque's in the summer and enjoyed it. Haven't been to Fat Cat's in ages, so I may try Defina. Hugh's Room is close enough I hope as it's a chilly walk these days.

Riijstaffel Event at Quince

I can't believe that Sama Sebo is still in existence! I was there 35 years ago when it was recommended by Gourmet magazine. It was excellent back then-Ha!

Riijstaffel Event at Quince

Thanks for the thumbs up. Sama Sebo was the excellent restaurant I visited in Amsterdam. About 25 years ago there was a restaurant in Toronto called Riijstaffel. I never did get there and it closed. Not sure why it's never caught on here?

Probably your best bet is to phone Quince directly and tell them you're lactose intolerant and see what they say.

Riijstaffel Event at Quince

If you've ever been to Amsterdam and had this Indonesian type of dinner, you might want to book this event at Quince on Jan. 18th 2012--two sittings. Books up fast as last time I was too late.

Looking for a chocolatier (Downtown T.O./Etobicoke)

At Morroco chocolates in Yorkville, they have almonds covered in chocolate but they look exactly like olives in a lovely clear jar. They also have many wonderful regular chocolates.

You're probably thinking of Callebrut chocolates at the Dundas/Royal York area mall where the Brunos is located.

Aboriginal Food in Toronto

I was at Keriwa during the week and it wasn't very busy but our dinners took far too long. The waitress was informed and attentive but the food took too long to come to the table. The menu is not extensive so I don't really understand what the problem could have been. We ordered bison and pheasant, which were both delicious when they arrived. As well the smokey scent permeated our clothes and lingered for more than a day. I had to hang my clothes and aerate them. The waitress brought us a complimentary gazpacho soup and sent us home with a 'goodie bag' which turned out to be cinnamon buns i suspect as a consolation. Instead of all these extras, it would have been better to have the meal delivered on time. How would they manage with a full house?

What's your favorite comfort soup of all time?

My late Polish mother-in-law used to make a cucumber soup--hot or cold, it was delicious! I would love to know how to make it but I will try Bread & Roses sometime.( hers had dill pickle in it as well) Thanks

Thursday night dinner for Foodie's b-day in T.O.

Thanks we've been to Starfish and really enjoyed it. I think you've given us some really good suggestions here! I took her to Grano's in the Spring for a big celebration they were having and she loved it--so maybe we should try Massimo's place--Mistura.

No this is not my friend asking the same question. I just noticed this post and thought I might as well discount Enoteca Sociale as it seems like the "go-to" suggestion lately.

We're open to location and price point as well. One friend does not eat meat but enjoys food in general. B-day girl likes to be where the action is.....but we're talking middle age married women here!
