Birthday Spot Recommendations

Hi there,
Looking for a fun bday spot. Has anyone been to O & B on Front St on a Saturday night?


I'm looking for a loungy bar/restaurant where I can just relax and have a few drinks. I can never seem to find a decent one without having to get there really early, line up really long, dress up in a tux, or spend a fortune. What are people's favourite comfortable loungy destinations?

Barilla Plus Pasta

Does anyone know where to find Barilla Plus Pasta in the GTA? I used to get it at Longo's but they don't seem to carry it anymore.
thanks in advance

French Onion Soup

Where can one get good french onion soup in Toronto?

Pizzelle Maker

Does anyone know where one can get a non-electric Pizelle Maker? I believe they are referred to as Pizelle Grills. I have been able to find only the electric ones, and the girlfriend wants to get an old fashioned stove top one for her sister for christmas. I would love help on this matter. I live in the GTA. Thanks

Thai food restaurants seem to be popping up on every street corner. Although I am always up for trying new ones, I have found a lot of them recently to be truly lacking. Any suggestions on the best thai restaurant in Toronto? I will give my opinion after I see some of yours...

cafe Brussels used to have fantastic mussels. Is it still around?

Romantic Restaurants in GTA

I am looking to take a special lady on a first date ( I've waited forever for this), and I am stumped as to where I can take her that is special. I don't necessarily think the most expensive restaturants are the most romantic (scaramouche had been uttered to me numerous times), but I am looking for something quaint, quiet and with good food. If I need to spend a lot of money I don't mind, but I want it to be special and memorable...please help me!!!!!!
