Dinner and a Show — the ultimate Date Night combo. Lucky for you and your loved one, there are some pretty great shows in Toronto this autumn. We’ve paired these productions with the best nearby dinner spots to make planning your romantic evening a little easier. If you’re single, don’t worry! These restaurants and shows are also great for a night on the town with a good friend. Here are our 3 favorite dinner spots and shows for a date night.

Cluny Bistro and Life After

If you’re looking to take in some old-fashioned Parisian charm before seeing a new Canadian musical, check out Cluny Bistro and Boulangerie before seeing Canadian Stage’s Life After. Cluny Bistro serves delicious French cuisine inside a chic, easygoing setting. The lovely spot is located in the heart of the Distillery District within walking distance to the Berkeley Street Theatre, where you can see Life After. Following an acclaimed debut at the Toronto Fringe Festival in 2016, Life After tells a funny and frank story of love, loss and vivid imagination from Britta Johnson, one of the most exciting new voices in Canadian musical theatre. Tickets start at just $39.

Hanmoto and Avenue Q

Stop by eclectic and cool Hanmoto for scrumptious, Japanese-style fare before seeing the hilarious hit musical Avenue Q at the Lower Ossington Theatre. Hanmoto is a fun and popular spot for the hipster crowd. It’s open late, so if you can also mix things up and grab a bite or a drink after the show. Avenue Q tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account… with puppets! It’s not a family-friendly show, but it sure is a riot. You can save up to 36% on tickets through TodayTix.

El Catrin and Picture This

The Distillery District’s El Catrin serves up a mixture of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine. The winner of many distinguished food and beverage awards, the stylish restaurant serves excellent meals and small plates cooked by top chefs an boasts a healthy Tequila selection. Have a lively dinner at El Catrin before heading over to the Young Centre for the Performing Arts close by where you can see the Soulpepper production of Picture This. The show follows a group of struggling artists filming a Napoleonic saga in only two weeks. TodayTix is offering tickets to Picture This starting at just $30!
