Private room in restaurant

Oh yes, thank you! Downtown would be great - maybe close to King and Spadina.

Thank you!

Private room in restaurant

Hello,

I need to hold a meeting tomorrow around 4pm. We will only be 3 people, so I am looking for a place where we could sit and order some food. It does not need to be super fancy, but still, it is with a client, so anything decent would be perfect!

Thanks!

Dinner on Tuesday - Close to downtown

Hello,

I need to plan a dinner for 4 people tomorrow night close to downtown (I am staying at Le Germain on Mercer Street). I would like a place where food is great and atmosphere too. I went to Patria recently and The Chase today for lunch and loved both these places.

Thank you for your help!

Breakfast Front & Yonge on a week day

Hello CHs,

I often visit our Front St E office which is just east of Yonge and always wonder where to eat breakfast before going to work. Any good places around there? I tried Le Petit Déjeuner which I found ok.

Thank you!

Lunch around Bay & Queen

Thank you Jenna! I tried reserving at The Chase, but it was full until 1:30pm. They did have options for The Chase Fish & Oysters but the menu does not seem as attractive as The Chase ;) Gabardine does not take reservations, but I will try it when I am with a friend and am not on a tight schedule - thank you so much!

Lunch around Bay & Queen

Hello,

I am from Montréal and looking for a great place for lunch around Queen & Bay. Does not need to be super high-end, but just great food and great atmosphere. I will be attending tomorrow with a client that is pretty laid back and likes true good food.

I saw Nota Bene was close by. Otherwise, I love Terroni, but would be nice to try something else. I have heard Origin is quite good too...

Thank you for your recommendations!

Lunch in North York (Sheppard & Yonge)

Thank you! It's funny, I was looking at Oliver & Bonacini, but when I saw it was in a shopping mall I was really discouraged. I understand that Auberge Du Pommier is in the same group of restaurants, but probably better?

I made a reservation - thank you for the reco!!

Lunch in North York (Sheppard & Yonge)

Hello,

I am from Montréal and will be going to our Toronto office on May 28. I need to bring 4 clients to lunch. Our office is on Sheppard and Yonge in North York and I am looking for something close by. I went many times to our office there and always end up in average places. Is there anything good around? Even if we have to take a 5-10 minutes cab, it is ok.

The clients are major foodies, so I am really looking forward to discover a great place with them.

Thank you for any advice you are able to give me!

Visiting SF for a week from Montréal - Need restaurant recos

Hello Chowhounders,

This is my first post so I hope I am doing this correctly ;)

I will be visiting SF for a week and would love if you could help me with recommendations of the restaurants not to be missed.

Last time, I went to Nopa, Namu Gaji, Locanda, Blowfish Sushi & the ferry building for lunch and I all loved them.

I have already made reservations for the coming week to AQ, Bar Tartine and St. Vincent. I still have Monday & Wednesday for which I need a dinner option.

Also if you have a wine bar to recommend, it would be great. Last time, I went to California Wine Merchant and liked it. Finally, I would also like to have a great brunch recommendation.

Thank you for your help!
