Changes at the Chowfind of the Century - Bistrot92 -Dufferin Eglinton

Since we drove from Cobourg based on discussions from this site, someones opinon of this place based on pictures would have absolutely zero influence on me beyond this response which is even more than it warrants.

Thanks for the rec. vinnie. I had lunch there today with my daughter and it was exceptional! .... if anyone is even close to that area, they should give it a try, chowfind of the century was not off the mark.

Ginopolis Bar-B-Q ?? [Suburban Detroit]

Actually I did find Slow's, but that's probably outside of our designated drivers comfort zone. However, Beans & Cornbread certainly looks interesting. Thanks

Looking for upscale casual near Horshoe Resort?

This request was for my daughter and some friends that were spending the weekend in that area and although there were obviously no reply's to this post, they went to Michael's and Marions based on previous posts. The report from them (with no exceptions) was that it was a fantastic meal and excellent service.

Good and Kid-friendly in Cobourg?

Try John's Junction, the outside is deceiving (strip mall looking), but very comfortable inside, interesting menu for Cobourg and excellent food. Buttermilk Cafe on mainstreet is pretty consistent and popular. Oasis has been an old standby for years, but hear they are hit and miss lately.

Hi Guys .... racing weekend coming up again, anything new this year we should try, also, we have another couple coming with us that really like the pub sports bar style, last year we tried I think it was the library, anything similar or comments on it? Thanks

Looking for good Eats in Kingman, Sedona, Grand Canyon Village, St. George and along the Route?

My Wife and I are from Canada and are doing the "National Parks Motorcycle Tour" in April and will be staying in Kingman, Sedona, Grand Canyon Village and St. George before returning to Vegas. We are looking for some Chowworthy recommendations either in these towns for dinner or along the route for lunch. Searches on this board have Sedona pretty well covered .....Elote Cafe and Cowboy Club and Flagstaff ... Salsa Brava and Brandy's Bakery, but not much else. Open to all types of food, unique places with a bit of local character would be a bonus, but nothing to fancy as it is casual dress as we have to pack light. Hope you can help us out as we are certainly looking forward to our trip. Thanks

Anything Chowworthy in Lincoln NH

We are a small group (5 or 6) older guys attending the Laconia bike week but will be spending a few days in Lincoln NH so looking for some good breakfast and dinner places, not expensive or fancy, just good food with a little local character would be a bonus. Of course any evening adult beverage places would suit us also. Tried searching this board but couldn't find much. Thanks

Heading up to Curve Lake (Peterborough Area)

We had lunch today at Marks Finer Diner for the first time and both of us give this place two thumbs up. Very friendly people and great food, the only down side is going to be the lineups to get in when more people find out about it.

Does anyone drink skim MILK - what brand are you buying?

Try Kawartha Dairies skim milk if you can get it in your area ... I have tried them all and think it is by far the best tasting.
