We are a family of five including a grandma and two "adventurous" young boys ages 8 and 9. We are staying downtown and have a car and are considering a number of restaurants for dinner.
The wife likes the looks of Jose Garces' restaurants, particularly Amada which I think fits into our greats interests.
Zahav looks interesting (High end Israeli?) but I'm not sold on it. We really, really go for asian and were thinking about Morimoto but my mom won't appreciate or eat sushi. We don't go for Italian really. Looked at Koo Zee Doo but we had not the best meal at a high end Portugese place in Toronto. We are not big on Greek (Kanella). Nouveau American cusine is great as long as its preogressive and interesting. Anything else out there that is interesting, fun, perhaps asian (but not necessary). We like big flavors and a lively atmosphere. Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
