Dear Bargainista - #1

In the first of our Dear Bargainista series, Glen writes:

Dear Bargainista,

We have a gift certificate for Oliver Bonacini group of restaurants. Being vegetarian and travelling by TTC, which restaurant should we go to for something special?

Canoe (heard it's mostly just the view)?
Auberge du Pommier (they have horse on the menu - gross!)?
Biff's (name is stupid - sounds like a sports bar)?
Jump (went there 3 years ago, was okay).

Which place has the best deserts?
Dear Glen,

For a great night out - I would choose between Canoe or Auberge. Both are on the subway line, have fantastic service, a provide a nice atmosphere for either a dinner with friends or a lovely night with the significant other.

As both are quite high-end, both would definitely have vegetarian options. Most T-dot 5 star restaurants also offer vegetarian and vegan tasting menus. You do have your choice on informing the host when you make the reservation, which may be a good idea as it will provide the chefs with a head's up, but it really is not necessary - after all, there is a growing number of vegetarians in the city.

Hope this helps. Please do tell me which one you go to. Both of these restaurants are on my top 10 favs in the city.

As far as desserts - both have great options. Auberge has a great bitter chocolate dessie that is oh-so-decadent. Simply divine.
