I'd like to think I'm really good at finding pleasing restaurants. But I'm stuck, guys. I need help. Where can I take my mother out this Saturday in Toronto?
Here's the thing. She's very health conscious and particular - almost alarmingly so. And although she likes the "idea" of trying new things, when the puck drops, she always asks the waiters and waitresses to take off all the unknown sauces, etc.
Where would I find a restaurant that would have these qualities?
Atmosphere: Elegant, or at least not overly loud or "hipster/trendy". Traditional, I guess.
Food: This sounds terrible, but... A place that might care about the image of their food more than the food itself. A place where you can still order simple salads and meat, but it seems a bit more impressive on the menu.
I think I'm looking for a food experience that is more about a place to sit and drink wine in a nice environment, and have some simple, yet elegant-seeming food available.
I'd really appreciate some help on this one. I'm stumped. Thanks!
