Will be in Toronto soon, for the International AIDS Conference (meaning I will be jockying for restaurant space with *lots* of other folks...)so, Chowhound that I am, I have no idea what sessions I am going to, but I have most of my restaurant reservations made...
But, I could still use help with a few questions:
1. I arrive late on Saturday night, and Thuet is close to my hotel, and open late. I figured that was a good choice for my first meal in Toronto...am I right?
2. I am on a perdiem, and my funds aren't unlimited...but I would like to have one really exception meal: I think I have narrowed it down to Splendido or George, so which should I choose, and why? or am I better off elsewhere? (yes, I've been following the thread on a meal if someone else was buying, but it doesn't give me a good sense of the why....)
3. I am seeking a spot near the King Street West/Downtown/Convention area for a dinner for six persons one night, that is very moderately priced or even inexpensive....unfortunately, it is a non-chowish group and there may be pushback if I go for anything 'ethnic', although they might agree to Thai or Vietnamese...any ideas?
4. and finally, does anyone have any feedback on Izakaya Restaurant?
I appreciate any help you can give! Thanks, and will report back..
