My girlfriend and I are attending a conference in Toronto next month, her birthday falls during this time. I'm looking for suggestions on restaurants. I was thinking either higher end fine dining or Japanese (two things that Montreal does terribly) We've been to Scaramouche and Lai Wah Heen. The latter was great, Scaramouche was fine but not really exceptional (except for that coconut cream pie). Are any of the fine dining places that are routinely named on the board particularly 'Toronto'?
Or with Japanesse I was thinking of Sushi Kaji. I'm a little hesitant with the hassle of getting there as we will be staying downtown. For someone who dines at the better Japanesse places in NYC will this place be amazing? Would we be better off just going to one of the more modest sushi places downtown for a quick bite one of our busier nights and save the birthday meal for the fine dining option?
thanks for the help!
