Carpano -- now what?

sorry October 29th

ISO Cocktail Condiments

just giving you a heads up i was in chapters today in the eaton centre and they had "mix, shake, stir" on sale for 9.99$
Really good deal these are all the drinks from Danny Meyer's restaurants ie gramercy tavern, jazz standard etc.
In my opinion its a great book and if you are interested in cocktails this would be a great buy!


Carpano -- now what?

yes the restaurant has been sold, the last service as Carpano was on November 29th. My understanding is there's going to be a 2-3 week turnaround and it should reopen as a new restaurant with a new concept.

New To Ontario and I need some help finding some items

one of them is called "Oriental harvest" it is in the basement on the west side of spadina just north of dundas street

Beef cheeks

find a italian butcher and ask them to order it in for you.

ISO Cocktail Condiments

byob near the corner of queen st and shaw. They should have everything you would need.

Heading to Ottawa this weekend ..... Where should I go?

sweetgrass aboriginal bistro, domus, or play
these are all good choices in my book

PEPSI Throwback- have you seen it?

i found the "throwback" is not a sweet and is missing a little zing that the new pepsi has. Also bought my case @ sobeys on dupont

The Butcher Shoppe - What do you buy there?

try beef cheeks ( these are great for braising)
Frozen baby back ribs ( they come in a case of 7 racks normally costs about 40 bucks or so)
beef back ribs
they carry rabbits, ham hocks, duck breasts, cornish hens all sorts of stuff. Use them all the time.
