I need a venue for about 20 international visitors for dinners on a Friday and Saturday night. APC and Toque would be perfect cuisine but neither will accept such a large group. It pretty much needs to be "local" food and not one of the better traditional or European style French or Portuguese or Italian or Asian restaurants since guests will be from Paris and Lisbon and Milan and Shanghai and Seoul and elsewhere and the comparisons are not likely to stand well. Besides they are here to enjoy Canada.
A private room would be fine as would taking the whole establishment if the management was willing. Price is not a big issue. Good service, a comfortable but not necessarily formal atmosphere, and above all, high quality food are.
