My SO and I have been going to Splendido for about 2 or 3 years now, regularly. we love the atmosphere, the food, the drinks, the wine, pretty much everything about it, we enjoy.
The one thing that disappoints us, is that there are no other restaurants that come close to the quality and consistency that Splendido represents in Toronto. We try going to all the usual suspects, Canoe, colborne lane, the black hoof, scarpetta, north44, bymark - but it's never quite satisfactory. We were even lucky enough to get an invite to Michael Stadtlander's farm this past summer, and it was not as satisfying as expected.
We were in Calgary recently and had an amazing dinner at the Chefs Table, and during the summer we were at Lot51 in Halifax, and the food was excellent - But it seems we shouldn't have to travel half way across the country to attend a restaurant that even begins to rival Splendido.
So I ask - where can we go in Toronto for a similar experience? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
We dine out quite frequently - on our way to Tutti Matti tonight (great Italian place) and the other night we were at our favorite steakhouse, Jacob's & co. - but they're both very specific restaurants, where Splendido presents many more amazing options.
