LOCAL FEATURE: The Blake House

Location: 449 Jarvis St  Toronto http://www.theblakehouse.ca Open only three months, one of the last standing heritage structures (built in 1891) in Toronto  has been converted into a restaurant called The Blake House (previously, The Red Lion). One of the three owners and brothers, Jim Vasilakakos sat down and chatted with us as well.  He described … 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

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.

Moxie’s, Yorkdale Mall

Location: Yorkdale Mall, 1 Yorkdale Road, Toronto Moxie’s has the lowest lighting possible, which is really no excuse for bad photos, and these really are the worst pics ever, so I’ll just leave you to them whilst I turn away.

TRAVEL: Banff: The Maple Leaf

Location: 137 Banff Avenue Banff, AB http://www.banffmapleleaf.com After a two hour trek across Lake Louise and back to the Chateau and by the time we reached Banff, we were riddled with cravings for salmon (or really, anything other than sandwiches and soups), so we headed straight to The Maple Leaf, number one on my list of Banff eateries. Also, … Continue reading

Red Room

Location: 444 Spadina Avenue, Toronto Cost: $7-10 for an entree Ah, the Red Room….takes me back to my university days…when “dining out” meant spending less than $5. An item on the eclectic menu will set you back about $7 – 10 and the portions are decent enough to split when you order a few items. … Continue reading

Hemmingways

Location: 140 Cumberland Street, Toronto Cost: Avg main is $13 http://www.hemingways.to In the heart of Yorkville there’s a cosy little people (or celeb) -watching pub that has the likeness of some Great-Grandfather’s study. Green walls, heavy bookcases laden with old books, equestrian oil paintings lit up with dimmed wall sconces, antique wooden furniture dusty with … Continue reading

Astoria Shish Kebob House

Location: 390 Danforth Avenue, Toronto http://www.astoriashishkebobhouse.com I trust you’ve already heard of my love affair with Greek food. I simply adore it. And at Astoria, there’s so much more to love. The portions are gigantic! This particular day, we were out on the patio; which is always packed in the summer months (I’m SO looking … Continue reading

The Jason George

Location: 100 Front Street East, Toronto I’ve been to the Jason George twice. Both times I had the fish n’ chips. Hey, why change a good thing? It’s crispy, flaky, tender, tasty. And the yam frites are scrumptious. Whether indoors or out, the ambiance is fun and friendly. A great local pub.
