I'm planning a 40th birthday party for a friend and I'm hoping to find a place that serves good food but also turns into a bar/lounge-type place later in the evening or has great night spot nearby. In terms of cuisine, I'm open to anything but a steak house would be preferred by the meat-and-potatoes contingent in our group. :)
We're all in our late 30s-early 40s and we would love to find a place with an older crowd but have no idea where to go anymore. We just know we'd like to venture out of our respective neighbourhoods - Danforth, Beach(es), Yonge & Eglinton.
It doesn't have to be right downtown but central would be helpful since we don't want anyone driving home. I thought King West or College would be good but I've since heard the crowds are pretty young in these areas. Or maybe we're just getting older. :)
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
