Hi there fellow foodies -
I really need some help!
I am planning a little celebration for my husband who is finally graduating university after 8 years of night school. I would like to host a dinner at a restaurant/lounge/bar for about 15 people and then have the rest of celebrators (about 20) join us for drinks/nibbles/dessert afterwards. I have been wracking my brain trying to think of places that could accommodate this and have 1. Good food; 2. A nice atmosphere for people ranging in age from early 30's-early 60's 3. and is fairly central (we are willing to go as far east as Leslieville and as far West as Roncesvalles. Some ideas that I've had are: 5 Doors North (good food, good atmosphere - but no bar area for later); Barrio in Leslieville (they can fit us all in - but it will be too late - drinks and nibbles people can only join after 11PM) and Reposado on Ossington (still a contender - but no dinner available.) I would also be willing to eat somewhere and then trek over to a near by bar.
I am seriously losing sleep over this - so any help I could get would be very very appreciated!
