I have not been to the Toronto restaurant scene in about four years. So I am quite out of the loop. I only recently started dining again in the downtown core. I am looking for a place where dishes can be shared, if it gets loud later on in the evening, that's fine, a place where I wouldn't have to dress up too much and open late, so no Scaramouche. Something like Bar Isabel...only Bar Isabel has nothing available on a Saturday in two weeks.
Another place I was thinking is Colborne Lane, but that apparently closed last year. Any recommendations would be very helpful. We're all pretty open to food, escargot, bone marrow, sweetbreads, we love it all.
