Fall is the season of catch up; catching up on errands, catching up on work and of course, catching up with friends and family. Just because it’s a busy time doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy yourself! We’ve compiled a list of Toronto restaurants for meetings, girls night, mom-time, date night… and of course me-time.
For An Important Meeting: Soho House
Perfectly located at 192 Adelaide St. W (just west of University Ave.), The Soho House is the ideal host for any meeting – formal or informal. This members-only refurbished 1800′s building provides the ideal location to eat, drink, work, socialize and relax for those in film, media and creative industries. Membership ranges from $750 to $2400 (worldwide membership for 12 locations), granting access along with perks such as events, workshops, movie screenings and much more.
Date Night: Indie Ale House
Indie Ale House is the perfect compromise for date night: delicious beer selection with fabulous accompanying meal options. They say “the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach”: we think a key to anyone’s heart is with beer and food! So fall in love over a 1/2 rack of baby back ribs and a few pints of the Instigator.
Girls Night Out: Drake 150
Located in the financial district, Drake 150 has the charm of the original drake with an added sophistication. This is the perfect location for your ladies night with menu options including spinach pappardelle, moules frites and a delicious mezze platter. But we all know the most important component of a successful girls night out is the wine – Chateau de Charmes Sparkling Rosé anyone?
Dinner With Mom: The Oxley Public House
We love The Oxley for it’s charming classic british fare and decor. Mom will adore this comfy yet fabulous restaurant in the middle of Yorkville, hello brownie points. The food is constantly impressive, with options that include a poached sole with aubergine caviar and artichokes, Canadian Beef Loin with Cipollini Pissaladière & Mole-Date Sauce and of course an elevated fish and chips. If you aren’t drooling yet, we’ll take Mom for you!
Me, Myself and I: Jimmy’s Coffee
Jimmy’s Coffee is always so yummy – the quality of their whole process (beans, grinder and machines) is demonstrated in each and every cup of joe. The ambiance of Jimmy’s is bright and comfy and always bustling with energy. This is a great spot to get a change of scenery, so grab some work to catch up on or the novel you’ve been meaning to read and enjoy a latte and butter croissant.
