Gaston's! Now that was a hot date place to go.
The one thing that Toronto has lost, and I am not sure when it lost it, was its small town feel (the good part, not the bad). I think the last gasps of it were the city's responses to some terrible crimes in the 80s -- like when Alison Parrott was abducted -- and somehow it sort of went away after that. The city went over some size/shape mark, diffusing the population too much -- so now things happen in different parts of the city and no one really cares too much. As far as I can tell.

yours, Peter T.
