I realize that San Francisco and Toronto do have some things in common- a good variety of cheap "Ethnic" eats, often overblown bull-shit "trendy" restaurants that people adore and, good regional (and for Toronto, seasonal) produce & meats.
Having said that, I'm interested in something I can't get in SF, where I can eat alone with a book, have a great glass (or two :0) of wine, and feel like I was somewhere that is not the Bay Area.
Oh, and all this is expected by Wednesday night! hehe!
Hopeless or hopefull?
Suggestions on any cuisine or new experience welcome.
