A place not to miss is Bistro 7 ¼. (725 Osborne St. S.) I was there Saturday and this place was hopping. Need reservations well in advance. Singles or couples would love sitting at the Chef’s table and watch Alex Svenne (owner/chef) & his assistants cook from a very good menu. Many small plates for sharing and some entrees. Mussels and Pomme Frites are to die for. We had the Leek and Pernod mussels, beet salad, Duck Confit which easily fed 3 of us. The 3 veal sliders we also had were delicious but a bit expensive at $18. Just my opinion. Martinis were perfect and I loved that they were served in a stainless steel vessel. Restaurant is now divided into 2 areas…one is for dining and other is for lounge/dining with a private room for 20. This place makes you feel like you are in New York or Toronto.
