Unexpected weekend. Help please.

You probably won't like Buca Yorkville then.

Unexpected weekend. Help please.

Have you tried calling or emailing the Four Seasons concierge? They MAY be able to get you into Bar Isabel and should be able to get you into Buca Yorkville.

Looking for a nice quiet dinner out with husband, for my 35th birthday, close to the Eaton chelsea.

I love love love Richmond Station, but it is not a quiet place.

Mengrai Thai vs. Sukhothai (on Wellington)

Having been to both many times, Sukhothai. Though I prefer the atmosphere and service at Mengra Thai.

Walked by today, and noticed that Hiro Sushi (as well as the eye glass store next door) is completely boarded up. I've been wondering for years how Hiro stayed in business.

$100 for two, all in.

Ascari Enoteca or Table 17.

Anyone seen where Debu Saha is cooking lately?

"Shame"? He might have many offers, but maybe he's waiting for the right opportunity. Or maybe he's in negotiations for something great.

I think that they cut a bunch of holes in the burger (not just in the middle). Haven't had a chance to try it yet, but don't quite understand how this would help a burger.

Sprouts in Toronto

Have you tried The Big Carrot on The Danforth? Summerhill Market may be worth checking out as well.

Need advice on how to sous-vide steak to different temps

So I'm making dinner in January for 4 people - one likes her steak medium-well, two like medium-rare, and one likes rare.

My plan is to get the water to 150 degrees (medium-well) and then cook the one steak for 1 hour. Take it out, put it in a ice water bath and then in the fridge, and then do the same to the two steaks but at 130 degrees (medium-rare).

Finally, I'll get the water to 120 degrees (rare), put in the last steak for 30 minutes, and then put back in the other three steaks and leave them all in for about 30 minutes. Then take them all out, sear and serve.

Thoughts? Comments? Advice?

Haymishe Bakery at Bathurst & Lawrence

According to their Twitter account, Dr. Laffa is also moving in the same plaza. Perhaps it's their new location that looks almost ready?

Sorry to sound like a broken record, but once again I am going to recommend Mangia & Bevi.

trambusto

So I went to the website to see what I could find out, and came across the following in the description of the chef: "He also has a business degree from York University's Schulich School of Business, for reasons we have yet to understand." WTF?????

Thanks to everyone for the advice. I will follow Earlybird's directions and see what happens!

Curl-your-toes Braised Red Cabbage

My Jewish German grandmother used to make braised red cabbage that had an amazingly strong sweet-and-sour flavour. I've tried lots of different recipes and nothing comes close. I don't recall any meat (definitely no ham or bacon) in the dish, though I do recall that the cabbage had a bright red colour.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Can you suggest a great pre-theatre dinner in/near Distillery?

If you're looking for great casual Italian, try Mangia Bevi.

Just wondering why this is news and why does it need its own thread?

We used to go to Mirto when we didn't want to wait for Mercatto or Terroni, and it was always surprisingly busy!
