Sushi Near Roy Thomson Hall??

I used to go to Funi on Simcoe street between Adelaide and Richmond.... if they are still there I don't think you will find a closer Sushi spot...

Shopsy's closing

Its a bit of a hike from Front St but the Corned Beef House @ Adelaide and John is arguably the best Deli in the Financial Districts proximity

Comparing Highland Farm to Longo's

well considering the butcher knows me and given the fact I spend $250 min a at the Leslie store /week ... ....well yes... no big deal I will just go the Lowblaws at Bayview village and pick up my certified angus beef in the future... the bottom line they were to unloading steak not fit for dog food on customers...

Cumbrae's Steak - the best?

I agree I have picked up several cuts of meat from that spot last summer.( Good AAA) However ,I get very picky when I pay $ 25-30 / steak. I expectt a minimum standard of Black Angus or USDA prime ,and more importantly ,TASTE!!! The Cumbraee T-Bone simply didn't meet my expectations.

Cumbrae's Steak - the best?

Had t-Bone yesterday and it was rather disapointing after all the build up. Nowhere near the taste of a USDA Prime @ $ 24.99 I consider it a rip off...

Eduardo's on Harbord: Has anyone tried it?

Just Like Jerimiah Bullfrog on Queen ... ... We used to go there for drinks after work for no other reason than it was a good little local bar but after Restaurant Makeover had their way the ambience was destroyed. According to torontolist.com
" Since its inception, we've seen the post-makeover demise of Jeremiah Bullfrog's on Queen, Oasis on College, Innocenti on King, Via Oliveto in the Annex, Lüb on Church, Eduardo's (formerly Latitude) on Harbord, and Mississauga's Rubicon Grill (to name a few). Some before the episode even makes it to air.

Add to that the recent closure of The Office at Islington and Bloor, widely recognized as one of the first sports bars in the city, after its makeover only succeeded in alienating what regulars it had left "

Suggestions for meats in St. Lawrence Market?

I agree I have never once been happy withany beef product from the market . ON the flip side I have always been pleased with the seafood.

Does The Finger Lakes area have ANY good restaurants?

No....In fact we wer so fed up with the food that we ordered KFC our last night which is traditionally our big night out.

However there is a clean littel diner on 5/20 just befoer you reach waterloo that serves a decent breakfast..... AVOID THE HERITGE CAFE at all costs

Pier 4 Steakhouse?

Pier 4 " Storehouse" ???
its had a good run so they must be doing something right . I remember going there in the 80's and went there last year. Tthe seafood platter or deep sea platter( can;'t remember what it was called) was descent ( $ 100.00)

Sure the have other things on the menu, but why go to a Seafood restaurant for chicken or pasta.....

Duff's wings...not quite duds

Something has gone awry with this place. I used to swear by their wings but no longer. today I stopped by and I WAs shocked when I received a bowl of soggy ( not crispy) wings in a water drenched sauce.

The wings are either not cooked long enough or they are now using frozen....
