I've had some bad experiences with attempting to bring my own food into restaurants. Some places don't allow outside food (I do ask in advance). Occasionally, I feel like the restaurant is making a huge exception in allowing me to eat there. So I'm glad that I found a nice spot to eat other than Swiss Chalet (Swiss Chalet is usually fine, but I was asked not to come back to the one near the Eaton Centre. They don't allow outside food anymore, apparently.)

The waitstaff at Bar Mercurio really made me feel that I was welcome...I didn't feel like my plastic containers + cooler bag was an embarrassment to them at all (they didn't even seat me in a non visible area as has happened in the past...we were right by the window.) They offered to prep my plate for me. And, even more importantly, I wasn't embarrassed about my cooler bag and plastic containers :thumbsup I really did have a great evening. yep, I think I'm making some progress here.

Good for you, Helen.

I've been there once (a year ago) with a friend. Nice place.

it isn't often that I get to go to a good restaurant, so I really enjoyed it. It is important to me to be able to join friends for dinner or lunch... Now if only I could eat the food!
