Have a friend with fabulous expense account coming back into town on Monday. Have previously wowed him with Splendido and Chiado, and we've been disappointed with Perigee.
He's got a slight preference for Italian over French and I've got an 'anti-Susur' bias (long story, but have tried 4 times and NEVER had a good meal or good experience... please, unless you're planning on paying, don't try to convince me otherwise!).
Location should be downtown (south of bloor) as that's where he's staying and is close to his office here.
One last thing... he's not a big fan of a 'set' menu (which I love, but that's another matter!), so am looking for a la carte, and a killer wine list.
