Allard Open on Sunday?

Most websites say that Allard is closed Sunday, but a couple say that it is open. Does anyone know for sure? We will be in Paris in October.

Family Reunion - 8 Adults

I did e-mail one Asian restaurant that seemed to be highly recommended, and the chef responded. She said that they do not add MSG to anything, but that many Asian ingredients come with MSG already in them, so she could not guarantee that there would be no MSG. Too bad -- I love Asian food, but I don't want to take any chances with the person who is allergic.

Gee, I don't know what the prices are in Toronto. Is is possible to have a meal for under $20 per person, not counting the wine?

I also forgot to mention that one night we will be going to a play at the Distillery, so it would be nice for our dinner that night to be nearby.

Thanks for your help.

Family Reunion - 8 Adults

My brothers, sisters and spouses meet every year in a city for a family reunion. This July, it will be Toronto.

Our reunion will last four nights and we would like to have dinner in a different restaurant every night. We will all be staying near Eaton Center, but we can go to any restaurant near public transportation. Most of us are budget-conscious. We would like good food but not high prices. For example, pizza would be just fine -- good pizza, that is. We enjoy restaurants that are not too noisy to be able to hear each other. Wine is a must! One member has an MSG allergy, so that eliminates Asian food. A good seafood restaurant would be nice, and maybe a steakhouse. But again, we need to be budget-conscious. We also like to eat early -- about 5 PM. We are in our 50's and 60's.

Do you have any suggestions for us? Thank you in advance!
