TRAVEL: Mr. B’s Bistro, N’awlins

Location: 201 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA http://www.mrbsbistro.com So, this is another one of those overdue/back-burner pieces. Better late than never, right? Located in the French Quarter, and coming highly recommended from many a source on the world wide web, my first impression of Mr. B’s was that it seemed more suited towards a 40+ … Continue reading

Frugal Fare #6: The Banknote

Location: 663 King Street West, Toronto The Banknote is one of those work-lunch and after-work dinner/drinks places serving up burger & beer type meals in a bank setting.  Yes, aptly named The Banknote, as it used to a bank, they still have the ol’ vault in the back and teller booths.  If that ambiance doesn’t suit you, there’s always their cosy patio on … Continue reading

O&B Canteen NOW OPEN + O&B Cafe, Oakville

Locations: O&B Canteen: 330 King St. West, TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto O&B Cafe & Grill: 240 Leighland Avenue #235, Oakville The new TIFF building’s restaurant is now open – here’s their menu online. It seems to always be packed in there and one day I will try it. Not too long ago, we dined at … Continue reading

Wayne Gretzy's

Location: 99 Blue Jays Way, Toronto  http://www.gretzky.com  Poutine$6.99  Salmon Burger $14.99  ….and the BEST apple pie I’ve ever had!  With pecan ice-cream, what a change from vanilla, and so delish!! (Not the greatest pics here, but I was more interested in digging in!)    The food is really great at Gretzy’s and the service is … Continue reading

Boston Pizza

Location: 2458 Queen St E.,Brampton I’d never been to a Boston Pizza before but have seen it many times from driving across four lanes. It is the quintessential surburban restaurant. Oddly, we didn’t care for pizza that day and opted for sandwiches and burgers. Menu described it as follows: Buffalo Chicken Sandwich Breaded chicken breast … Continue reading

Fynn's of Temple Bar

Location: 489 King Street West, Toronto http://www.fynnstemplebar.com It used to be a Fionn MacCool’s and now the name isn’t all that different but the menu certainly is.  For one, they have these God-awful photographs that don’t really look related to anything ON the menu. Things like three scoops of vanilla ice-cream that looks as if … Continue reading

Grand Opening: Compass Lakeside Grill & Lounge

Location: 2340 Ontario Street, Oakville So I was invited to attend the VIP Grand Opening of the latest waterfront resto in Bronte’s Harbour:  Compass Lakeside Grill & Lounge. When we arrived just after 8pm, Compass was out of food so I can’t make any judgments on that however I can comment on the drinks and … Continue reading

Bar Volo

Location: 587 Yonge Street, Toronto There’s cosy, then there’s cramped! Granted, it’s not meant for large groups, but they certainly have a small bar considering 50% of its name is BAR.   I do love the variety of beers though, although it’s not too enjoyable drinking standing up crammed between the bar and a few stools. … Continue reading

Raq n Waq

Location: 739 Queen St. W. 2nd Floor, Toronto http://www.theraq.ca The Raq is a great place for summer after work drinks. They have a really nice partly-sunny patio, pool tables (hence the name) and fireplaces indoors.  The service is semi-attentive and the food, although nothing to write e-mail  home about, is fine for drink snacks, but … Continue reading

Bar Wellington

Location: 520 Wellington St W, Toronto Oh, Bar Wellie, how you’ve changed. Okay, not to be quite so dramatic, but we really had some good times Bar Wellie and I. Once upon a time, when the service was nice and friendly, and I had my first taste of Leffe beer. Let me tell you, it … Continue reading
