Peking duck in Mississauga or Markham

The place I go to regularly is Chung King in Markham. It's behind Pacific Mall. I have a regular duck crew and we have dined around for peking duck and we keep coming back to this place.

Your favourite grocery store in GTA (chain or otherwise?)

I like going to St. Lawrence Market but I usually end up at Longos at MLS because it's closer. The Metro on Front has stale bread most of the time so I avoid it now.

Where would I find fresh cheese curds?

I found the curds at the Farmer's market. And I made beef braised poutine!

Thanks!

That's a great idea! I will check out the market as well. Fingers crossed they have it.

Thanks! I can try to see if they will sell the curds but I do want it make myself.

Hi, I will be arriving in Atlanta (Midtown area) on June 28th and I want make poutine for a Canada Day Party on July 1st. Do you know if it is still sold in the city? I called Star Provisions and they said they do not sell it because farmers are not selling them to stores because they don't make enough. Have you heard of this?

Where do people go for after work drinks etc...

I will be in Midtown and the downtown area (by CNN Center). Does that help?

Where do people go for after work drinks etc...

I'm a Toronto Canuck coming to visit. Are there places where the after work crowd goes for drinks that is popular? My experience in TO is usually a Thursday (aka Thursday Thursday) where you can hit a few places after work that are all happening with good food - restaurant, lounge or really nice pub. It usually occurs in the finance/business district starting at 5 but can go as late as 1am. Are there places like that in Atlanta?

College & Yonge Area

I have enjoyed the Queen & Beaver (35 Elm) as one of the nice pubs. W Burger Bar is pretty casual but very welcoming.
Oro Restaurant (33 Elm) is nice and intimate but on the pricer side. I enjoyed the food here. Adega (45 Elm) - many docs where I work take visiting lecturers there and really enjoy it.
I do enjoy going to Guu Izakaya on Church but it is loud but fun.
On Baldwin Ave, I love going to Matahari Grill (Malaysian). Really enjoy the flavours there. There is also Elle M'a Dit (French) not bad. Cafe La Gaffe (Italian) - pretty good but there are a few more places on that street you may want to check out Bodega, Johns Italian Cafe, Bocca.

Sunday Night Dining in Washington

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who gave me a suggestion. The group chose Ardeo Bardeo and we arrived at about 8:30pm. It was pretty busy for a Sunday night and I loved the vibe. Our server and the Manager were very friendly. The standout dishes for me were the scallop shnitzel and the seven hour braised leg of suckling pig. That was tender pork and the flavours in that dish were delicious! The server convinced me to try the crispy brussel sprouts (not a big fan) but they were so good! You can even get a nice bottle of red for a very decent price. I will probably be back in August for another conference so I'm hoping to try some others on the list.

I couldn't see the hours on the web site so I called and he said they are closed on Sunday :(

Mintwood and Cashion look really good!

Sunday Night Dining in Washington

Knowing my group, after a two hour open bar reception some will probably only be able to cab it rather than walk :) Dino closes at 8:30 unfortunately and its too bad Palena only has its cafe open as I would prefer the restaurant menu. Ardeo/Bardeo and Ripple are all great options for what we are looking for! I will suggest to the group and have a vote. Thanks!

Sunday Night Dining in Washington

I will be in Washington on April 15th for a two day conference. The only free night is Sunday and I'm not familiar with the city. I will be staying at the OMNI. A bunch of us want to head out after the reception (around 6:30pm).

We're looking for somewhere that is lively, has great cocktails/wine and good food but I'm not sure if that's possible because of the day of the week. (Toronto is kind of dead on a Sunday night). I don't want to eat at a hotel - unless it's exceptional, a diner or southern restaurant. Thanks for any help!
