Uptight Republican relatives are coming to town for a conference and want to get together for brunch. The Gallery Grill at Hart House would have been perfect (good food, nice setting, lots of lawn/building for us to take our 2 year old away to when he gets bored, because he will get bored) but they're closed for the summer.
Any other good possibilities? I was thinking maybe something at the Distillery District - again for the toddler distraction factor.
A buffet might be good if someone can recommend a decent one. Not Hot House.
Would prefer downtown or on the subway.
