Looking for some help for a birthday dinner for two (maybe three) for a Toronto friend who is a serious wine collector/consumer and foodie. The parameters are: not interested in paying silly prices, but willing to spend for a great experience; appreciates classic, but probably leans toward best new thing/young chef type place - great young chef and classic wine service would be ideal; pretty flexible on type of cuisine, although probably meat over a straight seafood place; atmosphere cannot be stuffy / artsy crowd is a better bet; staying downtown, so someplace reassonably easy to get to.
Hope that presents a enough - and a good challenge for you. Thanks!!
