Our vocalist has family there so I've asked if he knows of anything.
Looking for a decent restaurant, good food and a place that we can chat for a few hours.If you are looking for a coffee shop close to the tunnel then there is the coffee exchange which is located at 266 Ouellette, it's a decent place. If your friend is taking the bridge, tolls are more expensive and there is nothing really around there. As for restaurants there is a lot to choose from, it will depend on what you are looking for. If you have anything in mind I might be able to make some suggestion on places to go or avoid.
Spago and Mezzo are both very good on Erie St.I have been told of Spago in little Italy. There is another one, waiting to get the name.
