I am visiting my boyfriend next week after a) taking the bar exam and b) not seeing each other for months. We're staying right around Bloor and Jarvis, and for our first night would like to have a really memorable meal within a few blocks of our hotel. We're totally open regarding food genre, but looking for a dimly lit, exciting kind of place - i.e. a new restaurant that's really hot right now, exciting food and atmopshere (if it's also kind of romantic that's a plus!).
Not knowing much about Toronto, if this isn't the neighborhood for this type of restaurant, our second choice would probably be really good take-out and a bottle of bubbly for the room! (Which reminds me I need to post another question - where in Toronto does one find a decent bottle of wine!! We went to LCBO last time and I was pretty appalled at the selection... Question for another post.)
