Christmas Dinner 2010 - Toronto Downtown

Otonabee -- do you know if the Imperial room charges for toddlers? I can't see my 23 month old eating enough to make the "1/2 price for kids" price tag worthwhile!

Beef wellington and cooked lobster claws...

Anywhere I could get either or both of these in Ontario --- preferably frozen for the wellington? I am trying to recreate a menu and I am NOT a good cook!

Recipe for coconut cream pie?

If any of you have had the coconut cream pie at Scaramouche, in Toronto, that's what I'm talking about... Light as a cloud, the perfect blend of sweet with some texture from coconut....... yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Bartlett Lodge on Highway 60, East of Huntsville?

Yes. Exactly. Like most resorts in that neck of the woods, some of their dishes seem to be a bit of a stretch but they do a good job and the 'trip' is worth it...

Is Sassafraz really that bad?

Yes. No more description needed. Good for people watching. That's it.

Anyone know if there are nice restaurants with "kids night" in Toronto?

We should get a group together and take over a restaurant ... Would be easy to do with a small place!

Birthday Dinner with Baby

The louder the better - we go with our daughter to the pub all the time for Sunday breakfast without difficulty. But for a birthday dinner, have you thought about upscale Chinese dim sum like Lai Toh Hee / Lai Wah Heen?

Best splurge dinner?

We loved it and found it comparable to Scaramouche for food, though not for service. Nothing compares to Scaramouche for service. We also did wine pairing, and cocktails, which adds up...

Best splurge dinner?

Just did North 44 - really worth it. 2 apps, 2 mains, 1 dessert, 1 cheese plate - wine pairing with the whole thing. $350

Dinner suggestions for Cobourg ?

If it's warm out, go to Oasis and sit on the patio in the back - they have heat lamps... If not, the Northside Grill is a nice option http://thenorthside.ca/ - they have a tapas menu that looks fun. I have been for lunch and enjoyed it thoroughly...

Baby/Stroller Friendly Restaurants Midtown?

We have taken our now 14 month old to Cha Liu several times - store the stroller at the bar... also, if you want to venture to Mt. Pleasant, the Granite Brewery is not great food but big enough that if she kicks up a fuss (ours), it's no big deal...

Foie gras in Toronto

I had the foie on brioche for lunch yesterday at Panagea - it was a seriously humungous portion! Loved every second of it.

Summerhill Market - prepared foods

I agree with sbug206 - too big chunks, too little sauce... we werent' thrilled. But there is so much else to tempt at Summerhill, not the least of which is it's quaint location (park farther away and walk the neighbourhood! Excercise and gastronomy in one fell swoop!)...
