October 2013 - Toronto ON

We went to the CN Tower with friends last Saturday for lunch in the 360 restaurant, a revolving restaurant with magnificent views of the city. 

We bought the obligatory souvenir photos...



The prix fixe menu is $55 for three courses, there is an additional $8 if you order the prime rib. This may seem to be expensive but general admission is $28 so your meal really costs $27 as the admission is included.

 I love menu descriptions!

  1. I've been to Toronto, but not to the top of the tower. That meal looks awesome -- as do the views. I'll be sure not to miss it next time.
