Let’s visit a place with an ambiance and cuisine that the man in your life is going to love—so much so that you might even convince him to take you on a little shopping spree too while you’re there!
Nestled right outside Saks Fifth Avenue, on the first floor of Plaza Frontenac you will find Canyon Café. With its relaxed atmosphere and delectable Spanish, Native American and Western United States-inspired cuisine, you'll be pleased with how executive chef Franciso Bravo adds a unique Southwestern flair to everything he creates. Canyon Café has a menu full of Mexican dishes, plus incredible salads and pastas. Whether you decide to try the streets tacos or one of the entree selections, like the blackened tilapia and shrimp (or maybe one of the enticing combination platters too), Canyon Café is one of those places you will find yourself heading back to again and again.

Now, get ready to enjoy the perfect date night film!
What happens when you combine Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire), with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually)? You get the perfect romantic comedy for your next date night when you get the opportunity to meet Jack Malik (Himesh Patal), a struggling singer-songwriter with big dreams of becoming a star, even though it seems those dreams are fading fast. When a freak accident seems to have whipped the Beatles and their incredible music from existence, Jack now finds himself in a very peculiar situation, when he starts performing the greatest songs of all time to a world that has never heard them before. As Jack is thrust into the spotlight, he finds that the life he’s longed for isn’t quite as sweet as he thought it would be. And it might just cost him the only person in his life he’s ever truly cared about.
