Visiting Toronto in the next few weeks for the first time in 5 years and need some help selecting a restaurant. Here's what I'm after...
I'd like a place that showcases Canadian cuisine. An example would be Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal where, to me, they highlighted Canadian cuisine. Something meat heavy, but not a steak joint. Locally sourced products too.
The atmosphere should be upbeat, not quiet / Bistro style. Example Au Pied de Cochon or something similar to Momofuku (which we love) like we have in NYC. We can go there in a t-shirt and jeans and feel comfortable.
We'll be eating there on a Friday night 9:00 or after, so the restaurant shouldn't be empty then.
Thanks for the help!
