We'll be visiting from Toronto over the holidays and meeting up with another couple for dinner. Last time we met up, we ended up at a fine dining place in Central, and the food was great. This time, looking for something a little more casual and fun. If you know Toronto, we're looking for something more of the Ossington/Queen west atmosphere (think converted warehouse spaces, hipster-types, though quaint-and-first date-ish place would be fine as well. We are fans of Foxleys, Delux, Black Hoof, not really Splendido/Canoe). Basically, not looking for fine-dining atmosphere, but want something that would leave an enjoyable impression. no hotels or places where people are in suits having a business dinner.
Type of cuisine isn't that important, but good food is. Price point isn't too important either as long as it is justified by good food.
