I need to take a couple out to one dinner in Toronto. Need recommendations!
No preferences as to cuisine / atmosphere. Money is no object.
To complicate matters, they are serious, serious foodies from New York (one of them work in the industry, and they have seriously been everywhere in NYC), so they're not looking for just regular fine-dining venues. They're hoping for something that they can't quite get in New York.
Also, they have already been to Scaramouche, Splendido, Kaji, Hashimoto, Chiado, Lai Wah Heen, and Thuet, so they're not looking to go back.
A final wrinkle: due to our schedule, we would like the restuarant to be within:
West: Allen Road / Spadina
Sorry for the trouble!
Any suggestions? I'm sure the collective wisdom of Chowhound can come up with something!!!
