40th B-Day in Toronto -- Senses, Susur or . ???

I would highly suggest Scaramouche. I took my parents for their 40th anniversary. Food, service, view, evertything was spectacular. When you call to make a reservation, mention the occasion, and they will accomomdate you with a great table, and maybe a little surprise for dessert. Enjoy!

cinnamon buns

I recently got 'hooked' on cinnamon buns, though my waistline is in disagreement!
Anyone know where they have FANTASTIC ones?! I'm not looking for products like Cinnabons (Too cake doughy).
Thanks in advance.
I'll travel anywhere in the GTA, that's how bad the addiction is!

Looking for unique places to eat in Ottawa

I am from Ottawa, and now live in Toronto
You MUST go to Cabottos (sp?). It's in the west end of the city.
Varied menu, but mostly Italian
Their decorations for the holidays are beautiful
The restaurant is a converted old stone house.

Try Caynes on Doncaster (just north of Steeles off Yonge
Also try Kitchen Stuff Plus (several locations around the GTA)
