Where to go for birthday dinner?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I just need some help with picking out a good place for a birthday dinner with the family! I've heard that these restaurants offer great food, but I need the best one (one with a good menu of beef/non beef mains, as well as desserts)!! So I've narrowed the list down to: Parkside, Cru, Vij's, LK Dining Lounge, Nu... please help!!! :rolleyes: too hard of a decision for me to make :sad: !!! As well, name your fav dishes from your top pick!!

Thanks so much :wub:

Can I pitch you outside this scope?  Not that I don't like (most of) your choices.

hahaa...go for it :)

My choice would always be Parkside, unless there were young children, who might find the pace of a meal there a bit slow. I'm definitely a carnivore but there are always good seafood choices and vegetarian options as well. Desserts have never disappointed. (I may be Parkside's biggest fan, though, so you may want to take my recommendation with a grain of salt.)

I have had good meals at Cru, also; but I can offer no guidance for the other spots. I'm sure others will chime in!

Vij's might be a little difficult, as I don't believe they accept reservations. How many people do you expect to attend the dinner?

For Beef, I would have to say Hamilton St. Grill. I have gone there with non beefy friends and they have enjoyed the other menu items.

Is the dinner for this Friday? Everyone's getting pretty busy (if my recent attempts at reservations are any indicator) so call for reservations tonight, and be prepared to settle for second or third pick, I'd say.

Of your initial choices: Parkside, Cru, and Nu. The other recommendation of Hamilton St Grill is also a solid pick.

Discloser - I do work with some of the above restaurants. But that shouldn't negatively impact anyone's view of these restaurateurs' sanity.
