5) Sushi House

Who says sushi can't be romantic? Located just north on Main in the heart of downtown Brampton is a Japanese restaurant that has been around for eight years and looks just as good now as it did when it first opened. Sushi house is very inviting, with booths on one side and private dining rooms on the other. This place is great for a date, as the booths offer an intimate setting with ample privacy. As far as the menu goes, the food is on point and your date will be satisfied—especially with the complimentary crunchy noodle soup that kicks off every meal!

4) Wally's on Steeles

The restaurant is only a year old and they have a burger worth talking about. For $7.95 and change, you can get the Wally Burger to satisfy a typical burger craving. What they don't tell you is that it also includes a trip to burger heaven. I didn't add any condiments because I didn't want to mask the flavour of the patty. It ticked all the boxes: juicy, tender, seasoned and cooked fresh. And the size of the burger! Ouf, it was bigger than the palm of my hand. A waitress warned me that it's a big burger, boy she was right. It was enough for me without feeling over full. You can add fries for $1.99 if your heart desires. Find Wally's on Steeles (eastbound) and Dixie.

3) Poutine Dare to Be Fresh

Wow! This is a place that specializes in poutine and they did something special. There's enough varieties of poutine at Poutine Dare to Be Fresh to make your head spin. Every single type of poutine is always layered with cheese curds and fresh gravy, but it's the toppings that will knock your socks off. The Bacon Double Cheeseburger Poutine was said to be the most popular topping and it is to die for. The ground hamburger and bacon bits are any meat lovers dream come true. Plus it comes with extra cheddar cheese sauce on top of it. This combination may sound extremely unhealthy--poutines generally are--but the food didn’t make me feel sluggish or overly full. This poutine was made with love. The staff was super friendly and especially helpful with making the tough decision of what to order. But realistically I doubt that you can go wrong at this establishment. Though the product, contemporary and comfortable eating space and customer service were amazing, the prices are on the higher side. They say you get what you pay for and this was certainly the case. P.S. they offer loyalty cards, so you can get your seventh poutine for free.

2) Lousiana Seafood and Steakhouse

Louisiana Seafood and Steakhouse has the best ribs hands down! They were the tangy, saucy and tender experience I was waiting for. The meat from their Bourbon Street back ribs fell right off the bone and their bourbon sauce makes licking your fingers totally acceptable. The high quality was evident in the meat. In terms of sides, there’s three varieties of  potatoes, french fries, roasted and mashed, to choose from and coleslaw that accompany the ribs. The fries were average and the coleslaw wasn’t a great accompaniment.  Luckily it was all about the ribs that night that's what won me over. There’s also the option to order wings and ribs for the same price as a full rack.

1) Fanzorelli's Restaurant and Wine Bar

Fanzorelli’s Restaurant, located at 50 Queen St. West has been a neighborhood mainstay since it first opened in 1989. The chic resto offers traditional Italian pasta dishes, stone-oven baked pizzas, decadent desserts and an international wine list. In terms of atmosphere and decor, the resto boasts a rustic interior and a wine lounge/bar. Brampton resident Sabena Coulter, who boasts 30 years of experiences in the hospitality industry, recently became the classic establishment's new owner. Coulter is bringing back a signature dish served years ago—chicken farfalle (requested by many past customers). While in the wine lounge or dining area, guests can indulge in signature drinks such as martinis, Cosmopolitans, lemoncello and more. The spacious resto can accommodate 70 people in the dining area and 40 people in the lounge area. In terms of prices, menu items run diners anywhere from $11-35 dollars and Fanzorelli’s is offering a special menu for those that attend Rose Theatre shows.
