Jerusalem artichokes in Toronto?

I always get mine at Maple Leaf Gardens Loblaws
Look in the organic section, they are cheaper than the others (for some reason)

north 44 or auberge de pommier

defintiely Auberge...
My husband and I Had a small wedding.
We went to city hall and there were 13 people in total.
We had a lovely lunch at Canoe and by three oclock everyone was gone.
We had reservations at Auberge for dinner that night.
So it being our wedding day and all we decided to have the tasting menu paired with wines.
It was probably the best meal we have had in a restaurant in Toronto.
We went back for our anniversary the next year and it was just as good.
Probably my favourite restaurant in the city :)

Diners, drive-ins and dives

Haugens Chicken just outside of Port Perry is a good spot....

August Long Weekend

Wow... Thanks so much for all of the wonderful suggestions.
We are staying at the Four Points Sheraton so we are pretty central.
I had to wait until May 1 to make my reservation for Alinea which they are taking up until July and because we are going there on the Friday which is the 31st of July (if that makes sense)
North Pond sounds like a great suggestion for our Sunday Brunch :)
Another quick question... My husband and I are both in the "industry" him being a chef and myself a Pastry Chef and while we are in Chicago the Sommelier that works with my husband will be in town as well. So we have decided to meet up with him on the Sunday evening. Any suggestions for that?
Again I thank you soooo much

August Long Weekend

My husband and I are coming to Chicago for the August Long weekend. (We are from Toronto)
I have already made reservation for Alinea on Friday night and Topobolampo on Saturday night.
But we still have Thursday night, Sunday night and Monday night to fill.
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for those evenings.
We definitely want to try some "Pizza"
Any help would be appreciated.

OMG! I'm getting married! Need a great romantic restaurant for the reception!

I had a small wedding and we went to Canoe for our wedding lunch.
It was absolutely wonderful.
We had one of the private rooms that overlooked the lake.
It was a bright sunny place.
It cost about 80 pp with wine....
Which I though was quite reasonable.
It really made it memorable.
(That night my husband and I went to Auberge du Pommier for dinner) Again it was Outstanding...

ISO: one person bodum

I know that Kitchen Stuff Plus carries them....

Pretty Cheap too

Wedding at Roof Lounge Park Hyatt

Sirs Sam's Resort

I grew up in Haliburton, and its a great little spot.....
I'm not sure about the food anymore, I know it used to be pretty good.
But down the road there is a new place called Rhubarb and it seems to be getting good reviews.
There is a thread on it....(Rhubarb that is)
I recommend going up is defenitely a beautiful place to be
makes me miss home :(
