New bar Danforth bar/restaurant Local 1794??

Went there last night.

Great food, especially the apple pie coleslaw (don't know what the official name is, but that's what it will be in my heart and mind from now on). Looking forward to working my way through the menu.

Super service as well, friendly without being annoying.

Looks like it's being aimed at the same crowd who would go to Morgan's, but the atmosphere at Local 1794 is a lot less stuffy.

Thirty minutes in, I looked up and said to myself, "Oh yeah, this used to be Columbo's Pizza".

What is a place you frequent that you wouldn't expect to ever see mentioned on chowhound?

TKOs @ Coxwell/Danforth.

Blue collar sports bar with really delicious bar food. Not at all from a Sysco Heat'n'Serve vat.

Yes!

I saw them tidying up inside Saturday night. Looking forward to heading out there this week.

" Fisherman Lobster Clubhouse Restaurant " - The 'other' giant lobster specialist in town

I've been there once and can only echo the negative comments. Upselling, greasy typhoon lobster chunks. Can't see ever returning, especially for the prices charged.

Surprisingly tasty 'Made in USA' Soup Dumpling, XLB at a Korean Supermarket ( H-Mart)!

Charles, how do you cook them?

Touhenboku Ramen

They had a vegetarian broth option for a while (not sure if it's still offered) which I quite enjoyed. But I haven't been here in a while since other ramen places are much more convenient for me to get to.

To be paying rent and utilities without revenue for that long makes it chancy that it will work even if it does open.

I'm hopeful, given how much I liked Taps and Tales, but am not setting my hopes too high.

Yeah. I really wonder what the issue was with the water pipes, if that's what really caused the delay.

I think the owner was a bit more optimistic about when he could open up. When we chatted briefly, he gave a date, I jokingly added three months to it, and the date I gave was...really a long time ago.

Cafe Demetre's new menu... not loving it.

And frozen yogurt just isn't the same either!

Yeah, any chocolate sauce I've had always stays liquid. A place to avoid.

Do they advertise this as hot fudge sauce on the menu?

I went here once earlier in the year. Totally average and forgettable experience service and food wise.

So I blue crab is a possible protein source when I make this.

Any suggestions on cooking crab? Will frozen cook up in the soup, or...?

Very nice info! Love their other flavours, and will go shopping for some valur crab meat to add into the soup!

A somewhat dated example. We now have a constant barrage of ads in multiple media. Much more effective.

Let's not forget the hypnotic influence advertising has on some people.

Exactly.

The food at Starbucks-Yay or Nay?

The protein box is the only savoury option I'll get there anymore. Their sweet options are eminently meh, for me. I will buy one if I want to linger longer, but it's not like a special treat.

Interesting thought, it takes the pressure off the chef, that's for sure.

Danforth Pizza House for sale

Interesting, they were looking through something that had oven pictures, either a trade magazine or a catalogue (couldn't tell) when I was there last.
