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
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
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

Also, … Continue reading
Location: 456 S Ocean Blvd, Palm Beach, FL http://www.muer.com Our first place to dine in PB was Charley’s Crab…a highly recommended restaurant along the beach. Apart from the Guinness that was poured out of a bottle (egh)… the sandwiches we ordered were amazing and I’m not a huge sandwich person! (We quickly realized that most … Continue reading
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.
Location: 185 Main Street, Nashua, NH Cost: approx $9-15 per lunch entree (after 5pm, approx $15-19) http://www.marthas-exchange.com I’ve been to Nashua a slew of times but never dined at Martha’s Exchange on Main Street.
