Went out to to celebrate for two of my best friend's birthday last week at The One Eighty (formally known as Panaroma) restaurant. It is on the 51st floor inside the Manuel Life Centre mall at Bay and Bloor. I found out about this restaurant about 2 years ago when I was researching and googling about restaurants in Toronto. I didn't get to have dinner there until now and what a magnificent experience it was!
So what's unique and special about the restaurant? You can choose to sit inside or the patio outside on the north swing side or the south swing side to enjoy the beautiful view of Toronto up 51 floors high! Of course, we picked to sit outside of the patio for the view and we picked the side with the CN Tower view. You actually cannot reserve seats for the patio outside. It is based on first come first serve basis and no reservations are allowed. We got there early at 6pm so there were still a few tables left outside at the patio. =D
Food and birthday cake for my two lovely best friends birthday! =)
City view and group shot in black and white. I really like this picture of us. It's soooo classy and elegant, if only the waiter who took the picture for us didn't cut me out so much. -____- This is what happens when you ask people to take a picture for you who are not pro photographers, lol.
Polaroid photoshoot picture fun!
Some selfies that I took at home before meeting up with my friends. I wore false eyelashes and red lipstick. I wanted to go for a "sexy" look but I didn't quite turn out looking sexy at all. Okay, I tried! I just don't have any "sexiness" aura or charisma in me at all because I still forever look like I'm 18! =P
It was a great night spent with some great friends with an spectacular view of the city. I would want to come back to this place again for dinner on a romantic night date or something, lol. We didn't stay long enough for the night view as we left at around 8pm and the sun hasn't set yet. But I think the night view would have been very awesome and beautiful with the city lights. My thoughts on the restaurant? The food is okay, nothing outstanding and the portions are small and the price is expensive but given the atmosphere, it's reasonable why it would be expensive. I wouldn't come back to dine here often, only for a special occasion. XD
