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?
