Always fun getting a chance to post on other boards, usually means some type of vacation is approaching!
We are getting married in August and are heading to Hawaii, via SF - where we will be staying for 3 nights in on our way there, then upon return, 1 night in Napa.
For those that have not been to Toronto, we have a strong culinary scene, which is definetly seeing some movement towards offal, as of late, however; with varied ethnicities being our strongest suite, without doubt. While we do have some excellent restaurants and chefs, (Splendido, Scaramouche, Canoe, Colborne Lane) I know that you fine folks in the sunny state of CA have some pretty stellar ones that would put restaurants to shame.
We are coming to eat (first and foremost) and then relax and enjoy your city.
Suggestions for 3 dinners would be appreciated - I have done a lot of reading, but obviously the more recent the response the better. This being a special occasion, money is not a concern.
We also love Mexican food, but sadly lack any viable options which excite the palate in Toronto...so possible lunch suggestions as well, would be fantastic!
If there are any special events or activities you can recommend (we love the outdoors) which are going on in August, or that we should miss, I know its not food related...tips would be great.
In terms of Napa - I am not sure if this is the right board (???) but anyhow...We have rented a car, and are considering Terra for our dinner the one night, but could be easily pursueded.
We are lovers of wine in general, with stronger focus on Pinot's and Cabs from CA - I have heard Karl Lawrence and Shafer are both good vinyards to visit, but would LOVE some help here as well.
