Pseudo date tonight. Any "dark-lit" resto suggestions?

As per your request, an update on "where we ended up".... Was a bit unorthodox and met at the date's place for drinks... turned out the date's pad was pretty spectacular, so we started talking, got lazy and ended up ordering take-out from Sorn Thai... the best spring rolls and dipping sauce in the city - in my opinion. Pseudo-date sequel to be determined, but thanks everyone for your suggestions.

That is sooo funny that you this would be the first suggestion... I was also thinking about it as I also haven't been there. Hopefully this post isn't from the owner ;-)

I'm loving this post but got to get ready for my pseudo-date tonight or I'd spend an hour reading... Hey... I guess I still could.... Just want to say before I go that I agree with the Hero burger. wtf! Frozen processed patties! Are we THAT stupid people?! Same thing with Weber's burgers up north... retard burgers, but it's such a part of the drive to the cottage that it's impossible not to participate. I think I might get one of those custom t-shirts made with "I hate Weber's burgers... What about you?" and see how long it takes to piss off all of my fellow-Muskoka...er's with no taste. I'm disagreeing with the Swatow hate-on's here though... I've been a fan for years. I would however feel better if I could see inside the kitchen.... try not to think of it too much though.

OMG! THANK YOU! I've been there twice with an ex-boyfriend who likes it. It almost altered my feelings for him... I was so shocked how he lost his sense of good taste... must have been a favourite of his "favourite" ex... hence the break-up. I thought, who is this person and how could he possibly think this is good???? This place has a KILLER location, but everything from the dirty decor, sloped floors, are palatial in comparison to the food. Does that make sense? Mouldy cheese both times - like they NEVER wash out the cheese bin and just keep adding.... Bleck! Almost can't even go there in my memory. Haven't been to John's Italian, but that's another joint with such potential, but is a dead zone from a food perspective.

Got a pseudo-date tonight... not really interested in this person, so looking for a NEW spot downtown... must be reasonably-priced, with a COOL VIBE, music, great food, VERY casual, great wine and sort of DARK. I need to be able to hide a bit. Not too big, not too small and definitely not too romantic - no chains.

Love Foxley, Libretto... that kind of thing. Don't love the food at the Drake, and I feel the Drake has become too commercial - some place I could take my parents ... Also LOVE Terroni, but know too many people who go there. Maybe Teatro... I haven't been there is ages. Any other suggestions?

Hurry... the clock is ticking and the sun is setting. I've got two hours to decide.

Thanks.
