It’s finally starting to feel a bit like the fall here the last couple of days which means warmer options for lunch! Yesterday was a big bowl of Pho and today an excellent bowl of spicy beef ramen.

Took at client to Cafe Boulud at the brand new Four Seasons. Personally I thought the restaurant could have been built in 1990. Terracotta plaster walls, really? IMO, the design is poor. Feel like I'm sounding harsh but we are talking about the new "flagship" Four Seasons Hotel???

Service was top notch, food was good to very good. Still can't believe the design.

on Sunday - porchetta sandwiches, homemade proscuitto, lamb spiducci (i think i may have OD'd on these) and gallons of homemade red wine to wash it all down. In the middle of the street, in the shadows of the Brewster Douglas projects, tailgating for Lions-Pack.

Yesterday in Soave for the mercantino,
assorted cured meats, fresh bread
pasta in a tomato base with sausauge, zucchini, and the most flavorful, pungent smoked ricotta I have ever had
Manzo Alla griglia
Strudel di Mele, cheese cake with whipped panna, and tiramasu
Everything was homemade except for the wine, a Classico from Pra, 2011
And, we bought a barrel, French oak, stamped by cooper, very good condition. They make excellent cocktail tables.

Yesterday we made tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Enjoyed on the patio with a Chimay Premiere (red label). Simple, but so satisfying.

Mitt Romney arrived at the White House a bit early for his lunch with President Barack Obama..........

The two men dined privately, without their aides in the room. They ate turkey chili and Southwestern chicken salad.


99% of lawyers give the rest of us a bad name.

all sorts of cheeses, house cured meats and pickles; duck offal ragu on egg noodles (better than it sounds) and ricotta gnocchi in pumpkin sauce with fried proscuitto and sage @ Buca. Most interesting was the pickled green strawberries that were awesome. with some massolino dolcetto.

A gracious supplier hosted me at Momofuko Daisho yesterday for lunch in the new Shangrila. It's definitely different and a welcome change for Toronto. No backs or padding on any seating and as much as a liked the playlist(it was good) it was freakin blasted like it was last call. All seating under 4 or maybe 6 is communal - comfort was not the main objective.

The food was very interesting, unique,and technical with some real highs - deep fried Brussels sprouts with crispy rice, chicken wing bun, 5 textures of chocolate with crystallized basil (highlight) but the lows were bordering unedible. Rice cakes were a strange gooey texture and halibut cheeks were crusted in something so granular we joked about breaking our teeth.

Overall, it's a good addition to the Toronto scene and I'm sure they will do great.

hey bro,
I actually would go back because of the uniqueness and interesting techniques. I'm not really a chocolate guy but that dessert was real good.
IMO, its the kind of place to go for a casual bite and a few beers.

Chicken Korma and saag paneer from the only Indian fast food place in the underground who makes their own naan in a real tandoor.

The Momofuko sounds interesting. It's pretty much across the street so I'm sure I'll try it soon. On a drinking note, the lobby bar at the Shangri-la does bottle service vodka for $75 a bottle which is unbeatable in downtown Toronto...


Looking forward to those mags of '08 Salon.
