I'm visiting Toronto on the weekend of July 4th from NYC with my family. We're considering eating in Chinatown (a friend of mine told me there's 3 of them!) and wondering what Chinese bakeries and restaurants are great there? Dim sum spots to try out?
As for outside the Chinatown realm, I want to take out my dad (as well as my family) to dinner since it's his birthday. In terms of cuisine, he's typically safe sticking with Chinese (since we are), French and Italian. Maybe he's willing to try other Asian cuisines but it depends on his mood. As for budget, let's stick with $30 and under (without drinks).
Any suggestions for good European-style bakeries? I'm not sure if Toronto has any place that have great macarons (like Pierre Herme) but if you do, don't hesitate to speak up! But somewhere that has a good baguette or interesting breads would make me happy.
Thanks in advance!
