An alternative to The Drake please...

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. In the end I chose Bar One on Queen St, since my brother was insisting on paying the bill (and is not used to Toronto prices), I wanted the price range to be something he wouldn't have to take out a second mortgage on. We had a great time, it was the first time I had been there. My nephew had one of their pizzas, my brother and sister-in-law had steak and I had a delicious pasta with sausage and rapini. we started out with a tapas plate and two orders of a sensational grilled calamari. The prices were very reasonable and the martini's even better. We also had a litre of the house red which was a steal at $30. I will definitely go back.

I am looking for a restaurant to take my 23 year old nephew to for his graduation from University tomorrow evening. I was going to go to The Drake but the hotel is fully booked for a private event tomorrow night. I was hoping someone could make an alternative suggestion. Looking for stylish and special, Downtown core preferred.
