The best AUTHENTIC Italian in Toronto?

I haven't been, but Marinella on College Street (former Cucina location) at Grace is apparently quite good.

Sunday afternoon suggestions please

Hi. I'm looking for suggestions for a casual restaurant, downtown-ish (say between Lakeshore and Bloor, Bathurst to Yonge.....just a rough guideline) that can accommodate a group of 12 plus 3 or 4 toddlers on a Sunday afternoon. Food doesn't have to be outstanding, but it would be nice (for me) if it wasn't terrible.

Thank you all in advance.

Deep fried rice balls?

If I recall correctly, Centro di Formaggio on the north side of College between Clinton and Grace should have them.

Pizza Libretto - family friendly?

I was thinking of checking out Pizza Libretto for an early dinner (5:30) with the family that includes one toddler and one infant. The website says anyone welcome (young, old, etc) but is it really family friendly?

Thanks in advance.

best cali chard under $15

Here are some that I drink fairly regularly that are expensive in Toronto and much less so in California;

Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Chardonnay
Ironstone Vineyards Chardonnay Reserve
I LOVE Cakebread, but it's far too expensive here.
Toasted Head

best cali chard under $15

My husband is in the Los Angeles area on business and offered to bring home some wine for me. We live in Canada (Toronto) and Californian Chardonnays that sell for $20+ here are sometimes $10 and under there. SO, I'm looking for recommendations on the best inexpensive Californian chardonnays...hidden gems, tried and true, anything!

Thank you all in advance.

Dinner near Cannon Theatre

I'm looking for recommendations for dinner near the Cannon Theater. Something quick, easy, maybe Italian? As for price point, I'm thinking something comparable to Terroni.

Looking for fun, casual restaurant in the King/Queen West area

Can anyone suggest a fun, casual place for a mid-week dinner in this area. Looking for entrees around $20-30. I'd even branch out to the Dundas, College street areas for anything that fits the bill.

Thanks in advance

Sen5es for dessert/drinks

I vote for Perigee. It is really an outstanding experience, and not just "boring creme brulee". Ask for a table overlooking the kitchen.

Canoe never disappoints and I'm curious about the new chef at Sen5es, but I think for a special birthday celebration, Perigee is your best bet!

Enjoy!

Monday night uptown recs

Looking for recommendations around Eglinton/Lawrence and Yonge/Bathurst areas for Monday night. Something casual similar to maybe Grazi....it's been so long since I've dined north of Bloor, I'm embarassed to say I'm quite out of the loop.
Thanks in advance.

30th Birthday Dinner for 15 - resto-bar/lounge?

I've done a couple of birthday celebrations at Habitat and have been thrilled every time! Check out the menu on their website
http://www.habitatlounge.com/

I also had a great experience at a party for 18 at KiWe Kitchen. No, the food isn't ground breaking, but everyone enjoyed it and the service was outstanding and after a few drinks, no one really cared about the food :

)

Of course, Laide is ALWAYS a great time too!

Have fun!

Food/Wine Gift Baskets for the LA area

I've posted this in the General Topics section but thought I'd try here too. I'm hoping to get some help from US chowhounders. I live in Toronto, Canada and need to send a really great gift basket (food or wine) to LA. I'm looking to spend about $200 and would really appreciate any recommendations.

Thank you all in advance.

Happy Holidays!

The Ex - eats

Love the roti, the elephant ears and the tiny toms donuts. And of course it just wouldn't be the ex for me without some cotton candy and a candy apple!
Enjoy your visit.

Perigee questions

DH and I are heading to Perigee for our first time and I'm so excited!!

In regards to the wine pairings...first off, do you recommend it and second, approximately how many ounces do you receive per glass?

Also, both of us have fairly healthy appetites and I was wondering about the quantity of food served with the 5,7 and 9 course meals. We don't want to leave hungry as has happened to us with other set menu restaurants.

Thank you all in advance.
