Weekend Dining Adventure

Tried to switch reservation to the Scaramouche Pasta Bar, but only a 9:30 table. Too late. Keeping our original reservation. Will post review

Friday Night Indian- Staying Downtown

Thank you so much for your input., I am still at a loss as to which restaurant to choose. Babur or Maroli. Daughters go to dish is Aloo gobi, I trust a trip to Copper Chimney will not be necessary.

Thanks again

As Copper Chimney may be hard to get too, I need an alternate suggestion. Jaipur Grille is getting mixed reviews?

Weekend Dining Adventure

Thank you, as we have tried Sushi Inn for its convenience to my daughters "shopping", I would like to share an alternative, but close option.

Weekend Dining Adventure

My daughter will be visiting next weekend and I am trying to fill our time together with some off her faves and some new ones. We are staying downtown and she arrives Friday at 1. We are going to try and use TTC as much as possible, but can cab it as well.
Here is what we have scheduled so far and need to fill in the blanks. This will be accentuated with lots of shopping!!

Friday: Lunch/Dinner

Saturday: Lunch. Dinner will be at Scaramouche

Sunday: Lunch/ Dinner at Zucca,

A few ideas we have tossed around are. She enjoys Indian, Thai, Seafood.

Kao San Road : Dinner Friday/Lunch Saturday
Copper Chimney
Buca
Biff's ( Friday for their oyster special)
Jaipur Grille
Banh Mi Boys ( quick sandwich)
Sushi Inn

Open for any suggestions, and alternatives to the above.

Happy Holidays

Friday Night Indian- Staying Downtown

Trying to satisfy my daughters request for Indian food. We are spending two nights downtown, Friday/Saturday. We have enjoyed Copper Chimney on Avenue Road on numerous occasions, but looking for a couple options. Jaipur Grille was somewhat disappointing on our last visit, but not ruling it out.
We are trying to stay within public transportation, so Copper Chimney is inconvenient.

Thank you

Late Night-Danforth

Trying to satisfy my daughter's request for Greek or Italian. Arriving at 10PM @ Union. We are then heading east. I was thinking the Danforth may offer some late night options. Suggestions?

Thanks

It's Indian Now?

Thanks Googs,

I know Aloo Gabi will be my daughters definite menu item. No meat for her, but I have a hard time resisting lamb. The Vindaloo sounds perfect.

It's Indian Now?

As we will be shopping in Yorkville, the Jaipur Grille may work, just looked at their menu and looks perfect.

It's Indian Now?

Dinner with my foodie daughter and I has now changed from Italian to Indian for our Saturday night. We have dined at Copper Chimney and it is a viable option. Looking for any suggestions outside of the Chimney option.

Thank you

My Daughter- The Foodie

Thanks so much for the reply. I am not familiar with Maroli or Anjappar Chettinad? I trust I can look them up.
I dined at Chiado a few years back, I have not been back, but that was not for any reason except I cook allot of seafood myself.

Saturday dinner and lunch on Sunday are my challenge now.

Thanks

My Daughter- The Foodie

Thanks so much. Japango is sounding like our lunch spot for Saturday. As most 19 year olds, her plans are changing by the hour.
I have waited at Kinton and bailed out after 30 minutes.

Saturday's dinner may be a challenge.

Thanks

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I better heed your advice and make a reservation for Saturday night.

My Daughter- The Foodie

My daughter will be visiting this weekend with eating and shopping on her mind. She travels extensively and has a fondness for Indian, Sushi and fine Italian. As we will be travelling by car, we are open for all areas of the GTA. Yorkville will be our starting point on Saturday. Need to fulfill these requests.

Friday Night-Indian ( we have tried the Copper Chimney, and had a great meal there)

Saturday Lunch- Sushi (Sushi Inn in Yorkville is a moderate option, but looking for something different)

Saturday Dinner- Italian ( Zucca is our favorite, but it is closed for holiday's)

Sunday Lunch- I am thinking Ramen, possibly Momofuko? I have been to one of his restaurants in NYC. Willing to try another option, or idea.

All suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

Happy New Year

December 30/31-Restaurant Ideas for Downtown

Sorry, that was quite vague. We are loooking for an early evening dining option for New Years Eve. Steakhouse would be great, fits my profile, as better half is not too adventerous. Money is not really an object,

The Beach Vs. The Danforth

Ok, sounds great. A long leisurely walk sounds perfect.

The Beach Vs. The Danforth

Looking for a fun day in the city. Looking to do some walking and dining. A light lunch and dinner will be required. Thought these two areas would be a great introduction to an out of town friend who has been to neither. Any suggestions would be great. She loves to walk and is open to all dining options.

Weekend in London

Great suggestions. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to be so informative. Looks like Italian Friday night. Going to make a reservation at Abbruzi. Daughter arrives at the train station at 7:40PM. How far would Abbruzi be?

Thanks again. She is also interested in a bowl of Pho at some point.

Thanks so much "diva". Suggestion for fish and chips for Friday? Looks like that is the consensus for lunch on Good Friday.
