good evening chowhounders,
i made sure to read all the posts on this board dealing with europea, toque!, and all the other high end / fine dining restaurants before posting this post.
we will be celebrating our anniversary dinner saturday night and are looking to do a TASTING menu at either one of the restaurants. friday nights dinner will be @ garde-manger because it's in old montreal, it's chucks restaurant, and it's great for the late night lounge atmosphere. we are both passionate about food & wine, and have made our rounds here in toronto
so after many days & hours researching restaurant websites, message boards / forums, reading reviews, magazine articles, etc., etc., the final two have been chosen.
restaurant-toque! vs, europea
here is what i have heard & read and using to help me decide
toque - consistently great: service, food, wine pairings, etc.
europea - great value for what you get vs. what you pay, CHEF's table is available
$$ is not an option, but if save some and am still blown away then all the better.
any help would be great.
your choice: toque!? or europea? and why.
