Lord Stanleys Anyone Remember?

I am going back aways. Late 70's early 80's. I remember going to alot. The restaurant was at King St east if I remember close to Yonge street. The name was Lord Stanleys. The thing I loved about this place was you could go with a party of two or a party of 10 and you would get one big platter of food and you had to eat with your fingers, and they would put these big bibs around you so that you didnt make a mess of yourself. The platter consisted of steak, chicken, cobs of corn, pork chops and so on. Anyways. This restuaruant is now long gone. First off does anyone remember this place? and two, is there anything around Toronto with the same type of thing? Thanks Tour boi

Cruise Ship Food-Who has the best?

Anyone here been on a cruise? If so which cruise line have you been on? and which cruise line do you all think has the best food?

I have been on Celebraty and Royal Caribbean. My best culinary experience was with Celebraty. They took their time with the preperation of the food and the presentation. And every nite in the dining room I alway felt I was in a five star restaurant. And very good tasty fresh food. As for Royal, I did enjoy the food but not much as Celebraty. I would rate it a 3 star. Would love to hear you experiences...Tour boi

Anniversary Dinner Theater Dist

Hi all its my Anniversay, well on Jan 5th but I was sick with the flu. So this weekend coming. I have a nice hotel picked out and booked in the Theater I need to know suggestions for dinner what restaurant in that area do you all recommend. No seafood or Asian type foods. I once remember going to a place and I cannot remember the name, but it was Creol type food ribs and such. Is there a place like that in the theater dist? or Italian is very good too. Please help thanks Chow Hounds...Tour boi

Greasy Spoon Restaurants

Yunno, I really miss an old greasy spoon. It was called Brothers, it was on Yonge street (south of Bloor) right beside the Scientology place. Anyone remember that place who use to live in the neighbourhood? Anyways since that place closed, I have gone down to the Coach House (east side of Yonge just north of Wellesly) but I want to know, does anyone know where else in the GTA there are other good greasy spoons that serve a good cheap breakie of eggs and bacon? thanks Tour boi

Looking for the most amazing Vanilla Extract?

I know what you mean whe you run out of the good mexican vanilla, I to did panic when I ran out. Found it at St Lawerance market but triple the price of what I paid in Mexico. How ever you can also get the Madigascar vanilla for I think about 10 bucks at this cheese-deli place on the lower concord level at the Manulife Ctr at Yonge/Bloor or Bay/Bloor which ever you are close to. The cheeses there are wicked too. Lots of samples at this time of year. Hope that helps. Tour boi
