Another birthday coming up (21!) and, even though I should have seen this coming and planned in advance, my boyfriend wants to take me out for a nice dinner. The night before is pub and jazz night with a rowdy group of my friends, which will be great, but I really wanted to have a romantic dinner with him as well to celebrate.
The problem is that we are both at a bit of a loss of where to go... I would really like for it to be romantic, but romantic as not to break the bank. He is also vegetarian (making both Nota Bene and The Harbord Room a no-go....sigh). Our budget would be under $100.
Could anyone recommend a mid-priced bistro or tapas bar either downtown or midtown? So far the places I've heard good things about are Torito and the Queen Mother Cafe.
This might not give me a lot of options, but I would love to see what the TO chowhounders have to say :)
