Recommend Restaurant with a Neat Concept

Ok ok .. maybe I am looking for a gimmicky restaurant! Don't flame me now.

Recommend Restaurant with a Neat Concept

I have been to Guu several times. It's great but alot of our friends have been there too.

The Ninja restaurant might sound cheesy (which is what I thought) until I actually went there. The decor and atmosphere was great! Service was superb and food was decent. The food was very well presented and interesting. Ok ok ... maybe I was just having a good day but I had fun.

Recommend Restaurant with a Neat Concept

I feel most "cool" or "trendy" restaurants are pretty played out or at least I have been to them a ton of times. I am looking for a restaurant that has a different concept that leaves you with a great experience (and at least above average food).

Something like Ninja New York ( is perfect but I doubt we have anything like that in Toronto.

Open to recommendations! Help!

Gourmet Cuisine - Caterer

Hi All,

Does anyone have any experience with Gourmet Cuisine with the executive chef Caesar Guinto? I am looking for a caterer for my wedding (familiar with the top choices - L'Eat, Toben, Nobel, etc) but Gourmet Cuisine is the in-house caterer that will save us 15%. I wasn't able to find any reviews but would love to hear your experience.

Which restaurant is this?

I am having a brain cramp and need some help. I recall a restaurant around queen street. The logo I believe is a circle with the letter B. Does anyone know what I am talking about? The decor is very lofty and wooden.

Cocktail Party | Need Venue with a Stage

Hi Everyone,

I am a planning a cocktail party with a roast theme. Does anyone have any recommendations for a downtown (financial district) venue that has a stage?

I know Brant House has a stage but I am looking for a place that is a little more classy.

Corporate Event | Holiday Dinner - Suggestions?

Thank you for your suggestions. I held a number of events at Vertical so I wanted to try some place new. A co-worker of mine went to an event at Urban and also really enjoyed it.

I am also thinking about Chez Victor. Any comments?
