Nice to be back.
I am charged with taking a good friend out for dinner on her birthday, funnily enough, April 1. The "twist" is that is has to be a place where she has never been before. So established places like Canoe are out.
So please help me out. Are there any relatively new places that really stand out? Leslieville would be helpful as she lives in the Beach, but anywhere downtown would be fine. No restrictions.
Thanks for your help.
