anniversary plans

We decided that a special dinner was the way to go for our upcoming anniversary. Perhaps in 2007 - number 20! - we'll go away for a few days, but for 2006 we'll be wining and dining in T.O.

For the very special restaurant experience we're looking for, the consensus at Chowhound was Splendido. I got names of several other restaurants that sound very good, but Splendido seems to be the favourite.

They're closed during the holidays, so our anniversary dinner will be a week late. No problem.

So just now I called to make a reservation.

After taking our information, the man asked, "Will you be celebrating a special occasion?"

"Why yes," I said, "it's our anniversary - our first in Canada."

And he said... "Ah, I saw your post at Chowhound. Thank you for choosing us."

!!!!

How small is this town? Or perhaps the question should be, how big is Chowhound?

Happy Anniversary! Hope you have a fabulous evening.

Chowhound says they have 800,000 unique visitors per month. I knew they were big, but that's really big.

By the way, we drove about a block away from Splendido during the driving tour. When I pointed out the new Grad Residence at the University, Splendido was a block or so the other way on that street.

Right across the street, at 87 Harbord, is a shop called Ms Emma's. It's Lori's favourite clothing store (here's an example). You should definitely drop in when you have a chance.
