My wife is turning 35 and I am planning to take her out with our whole family. We had great success the last two years with Tomi Kro and Tatti Bistro. They both cater to that many people at one table, they have a "steak" on the menu (which satisfies our dad's who don't eat anything but meat & potatoes) and they are both fairly reasonably priced. We also love the Harbord Room, but I don't think it works for 8 people.
Any suggestions? We are fairly open to location - would be prefer to try something new(ish).
Thanks so much!
