Two ex-Toronto couples (very good friends) are coming back from the west coast to join me and my wife for dinner on Mon. Jan. 21.
We'd like to take them somewhere new, comfortable, conversation-friendly, with great food.
The six of us have been a lot to JK Wine Bar, Batifole, Beer Bistro, Gio's, Thuet, Lee, Globe.
so we'd like to avoid them. (although we love them).
We also don't want to get into the Susur, North 44, Bymark, Canoe kind of place from a spending point of view.
We're coming from Riverdale, but don't mind going downtown or even - gasp! - West.
Thanks in advance.
