DH and I have decided to take PA DD (7) and DS (5) to see Walking With Dinosuars at the ACC Saturday. Can anyone tell me of a safe restaurant that is close by?
Thanks
Gillian

Just Wondering, I'm so sorry you didn't get any response.
I did think about this all day yesterday and I'm just not familiar with the area around ACC that well.
I was going to suggest you take a jog up to Queen Street West and eat there, but even then, I didn't have suggestions 'cus when we go downtown along Queen West, the kids eat at McDonald's or Pizza Pizza. We've never gone into a restaurant. I go into any old falafel place there is practically.
So, all I could suggest is fast food places and quite a bit of a walk up, KWIM?
I don't think there are even any of the "eatery" type restaurants around ACC like Montana's, Boston Pizza, etc. I know Boston Pizza just got a *good* allergy awareness review in Allergic Living magazine. But regular restaurants - really no clue. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img]
When I think about it, we really don't "do" regular restaurants that much - just stick to the "tried and true" fast food places.
Trying to remember, but also a jaunt up to Queen Street West, someone else on this site had recommended Tortilla Flats. I remember that because we usually pass it when I do a day journey downtown. But I don't know where that post is and gosh darn it actually, that member did recommend more downtown stuff and restaurants (not fast food or eateries).
I hope you and your's have a good day to-day. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

What about the Old Spagetti Factory? It is not too far away and should be safe. We have eatten there before.

Thanks for your responses. We ended up at Joe Badali's where the manager has a peanut allergy and we were promised that other than desserts, anything was safe. We had an incredible meal and would go back in a second. I also checked with Lone Star Grill (?) and they were very aware and safe other than desserts. Living with Dinosaurs was awesome too!

I would of suggested The Old Spaghetti Factory. Glad you had a great experience at the restaurant you tried. I will keep that restaurant in mind that you used next time I am downtown Toronto....
