i'm meeting a friend for dinner and/or drinks in a couple of weeks, likely on a weekend night. they prefer to go somewhere in scarborough or north york. aside from chain restaurants like moxie's and milestones, i'm hoping someone can recommend a place that is conducive to conversation and where you can stay and linger most of the night, and also not too much difficulty in finding parking. no japanese, indian or bubble tea places, and ideally for dinner, mains that are around $20 or less. (is this too much to ask for in the suburbs?!) a combination of a dinner place plus drinks somewhere else is welcome too.
