Asado Brickworks Benefit

I went last year, but it was called the Evergreen Rodeo and BBQ.

We had VIP tickets and were generally impressed with the way that the event was run. Not sure what the changes are for this year though.

Bruno's treats The Pie Place's confections/baking in general poorly

Just wondering how many cookies were in the $9.99 box. You say that Brunos is a more reasonable price point than Summerhill Market, though Summerhill sells their own cookies from an unrefrigerated display for the same $9.99. For that price, you get 10 decent sized cookies.

Interestingly though, the label on the Summerhill cookies says "Keep Refrigerated" though when I asked about this, they said they only say that because they don't use preservatives.

Best place for authentic samosas? Beef patties? Please advise.

For samosas, try Samosa King/Embassy Restaurant -http://www.embassyrestaurant.ca/

Rock Lobster - comical

I don't believe that Matt is involved with Boots and Bourbon, but the owner of the Leslieville Rock Lobster does own Boots and Bourbon, among other restaurants.

Rock Lobster - comical

And for the low low price of $250,000, the whole restaurant can be yours!

Just as an FYI, and not that it should matter at all, this location is "owned" and operated by a different person than the other two locations (though it's not technically a franchise).

Magic Vegan Bacon Grease

I picked up a jar of this stuff on the weekend, and was just wondering if anyone else has tried it and has a recipe or two to recommend using it with.

Thanks

Bangkok Buri

This should be interesting, though I'm certainly hoping that the menu is more varied:

Crave It Restaurant Group is partnering with Toronto restaurateur Monte Wan, owner of the Khao San Road and Nana Thai restaurants, on a new quick casual concept called Bangkok Buri. The restaurant will feature a Thai menu including set dishes such as pad thai, red and green curries, spring rolls, etc. The concept will be about 2000 square feet with seating for 40 to 50 guests. The partners expect to open the first Bangkok Buri restaurant, a corporate unit, in the Toronto area by early 2016.

R&D - New update. Photo and menu.

They served my 12 year old niece raw chicken and when questioned, the waitress said it wasn't raw but cooked sous-vide.

Knowing that you can't cook fried chicken sous-vide, my brother-in-law walked the plate into the kitchen where the chef admitted that the chicken was completely raw.

The Landlord (Cadillac Fairview) has already done a deal with a new restaurant to replace them. They bought out the lease in order to do so.

PanAm - food related events/extended hours/etc?

Every single thing I've seen spells it Pan Am (including your link to the St. Lawrence Market website).

PanAm - food related events/extended hours/etc?

While that looks interesting, I don't think it has anything to do with the Pan Am games.

St. Lawrence Market - Voluntary extended hours for Pan Am Games INCLUDING SUNDAYS!

Just noticed a sign at the market saying that they are extending the hours for the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games from July 7 to August 15:

Tuesdays to Fridays - 8:00 am to 8:00 pm
Saturdays - 5 am to 5 pm
SUNDAYS - 10 am to 5 pm

When I asked one of the vendors about it, she told me that it was voluntary so if you go, don't expect everyone to be open.

Just to clarify, The Liberty Group is a Canadian company, but the President, Nick Di Donato has lived in Miami for (quite?) a few years. He is originally from Toronto and spent many years in the restaurant business here.
