I am meeting a couple of old friends, and unfortunately the V-day evening was the only time that worked for us. We will be out for a few drinks and dinner with lots of conversation. Ideally one should just stay at home in that ridiculous day, cook and have a nice homemade supper; but noone was able to host the night as well. I thought about going to Chinatown (always the best bet for thematic holidays), but I am open to other suggestions. It should be tasty but more importantly they shouldn't try to kick us out after 45 minutes like they tend to do (or at least imply) in more casual places. Pricewise we are somewhat flexible, but we don't want anything precious or fancy. Just honest food, cosy atmosphere that facilitates good conversation (read: no love bunnies around). Plateau, downtown or CDN are preferred. Merci!
