Multilingual as Toronto may be, there are also a lot of people who speak bad French. We can make up for the fact that we butcher our country's official language by taking romantic partners to French restaurants. If we are dating the person we accompany, we can be upfront with our shortcomings. If we are newly treading romantic waters, we can show off the fact that we appreciate beautifully presented French food. Atop a heritage building in Toronto, Alo has blind tasting menus or a walk-in cocktail bar where you can drink wine and eat oysters (if you are into that sort of thing). Expect white jackets on the chefs and food so stunning, it will take everything in your power not to whip out your cell phone.
- Romantic Dining: "Come very hungry if you are doing the tasting menu. Every single course is worth some stomach space. Reservations are hard to come by, so plan months in advance."
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: Alo is a high caliber restaurant for your high caliber honey.
