Shepherd and Allan expressway?

@magic, my colleague had a shawarma from that place when they first opened and got halfway through to find raw chicken. I wouldn't recommend it.

Shepherd and Allan expressway?

I work near there. Not a great selection. There's a decent Mr. Greek on Finch. Yummy Market is good. Cali sandwich is very close.
The new food court at Yorkdale is actually really good too. You just have to deal with parking at the mall.
I sometimes drive up to Promenade Mall for Marche. Yeah, that's how dire the situation is.

St. Lawrence Market - "World's Best Food Market" in National Geographic List -

St. Lawrence Market - "World's Best Food Market" in National Geographic List -

Second Harvest delivers almost 7 million pounds of excess, perishable food to community agencies (food banks and others) in the GTA every year. Check out their website to learn more. www.secondharvest.ca

Another thing that makes St. Lawrence Market great - they've been donating their excess food to Second Harvest for more than 20 years!

Prime Rib on the strip?

Where can I get a good prime rib dinner ON THE STRIP? Staying at Treasure Island, want to stay on the strip.
My party would like to keep it reasonably priced. Read about Lawry's, $35 is as high as we'll go but we'd like to keep it cheaper if we can. Please help! Leave in a few days.
Thank you!

Where to take my staff for a week DAY brunch north of Bloor St?

Thanks everyone!
I couldn't really think of anything either. How can this be possible in Toronto, with a sea of restaurants?

Where to take my staff for a week DAY brunch north of Bloor St?

How hard is it to find a nice brunch spot, suitable for colleagues, north of Bloor St?

Looking for something like Mildred's Temple Kitchen. The Drake would have been good if it wasn't so far south. It must be open for brunch during the week.

Please help! Thank you!

What's new in Slovenia?

Thank you very much! Pri Lojzetu looks amazing. And we'll be in Ljubljana for a few days so those are really helpful too.

What's new in Slovenia?

Heading to Slovenia (all over) in September. There hasn't been a post on Chow since 2010. What's new? Where are 'must try' places for dinner or lunch? High or low end. Just yummy food.

Help - culinary term for first step of soup/stew

What's the French term for the first step of making a stew or soup? Not sauteing, but the description of creating the base by sauteing the onions, garlic, butter etc...

Thanks!

Charlie's Burgers - Bob Blumer

I heard that Bob developed the menu, yes from his cookbook, and his friend Chris from Cava helped prepare, along with the students from George Brown. Sounds like it was a pretty awesome meal.
And it was sold out.

Sugar Cafe - R.I.P.

Still sad about Sugar closing. It was definitely one of my favourites in the city, for both brunch & dinner.

If you haven't yet try Mitzi's, 10 mins further west off Queen but definitely worth it. Mitzi's Sister is good too but not the same coziness as Mitzi's.
