Hey BAK or others a CN tower area restaurant please

BAK I read you reply to -Toronto: What is the 1 best "cheap eats" restaurant in TO that I can't miss?- As a result we will eat at Yamato restaurant when we go to the Bata Shoe Museum, about 3/4 mile apart. QUESTION for anyone. What is a similar "experience" restaurant around the CN Tower (like a Yamato flashing knives at table) Some sight sound etc. to give my kids a thrill of sorts. Thanks

Feeding kids near the CN Tower ... Hmmmm

Hot dogs and fries from one of the trucks in front, perhaps. My favorite is the smallest truck, with Horvath printed on the side in fairly small letters.

There's a tree inside at Kit Kat, on King Street just west of John Street.

Let me do some more thinking.

It's a tough question.

My first thought is the Marche restaurant by Richtree which is right by Union Station - the closest subway station to the CN Tower. The gimmick there is that each diner gets a passport and they can wander around the restaurant to various food stations and get anything they want made to order. There is pretty much everything you can think of. Your kids might enjoy roaming around and picking what looks good instead of the standard ordering off a menu. The decor tries to mimic an open air restaurant and there is lots to look at.

You can always eat at the CN tower as well, although it is quite pricy. In and of itself, that would be an experience. Horizons Café has CN tower themed eats and drinks and is very kid friendly. There also a fancier place up top which is a revolving restaurant but quite expensive called 360.

After careful analysis I have decided to simply regress to MY childhood and ask "mommy can I have a hot dog?" Perhaps the best place to arrange for my kids to get an "experience" is the most humble place of all - a Toronto hot dog cart! Duh - I say to myself! Thanks for the thoughts

True story -- as I stood inline to buy a hotdog and fries from a truck in front of Toronto city hall this afternoon, there was a young medical professional woman from St. Mike's hospital standing beside me.

I noticed her name tag -- name, and the name of here department. She was a cariovascular specialist, and was there with two friends. And what did the server pass over to Kate? Poutine -- french fries with gravy and cheese curds. As she walked away, one of the friends remarked, "heart attack on a plate, eh?"
