Gelato, Italian Style, at Grom
We wish we would have known about this last week when we were in New York! A new Gelato review from The Gothamist...
Upper West Siders had a new store to flock to this weekend: Grom, a gelato shop that opened on Broadway between 76th and 77th Streets. There were lines, and our own Joe Schumacher braved the UWS foodies and sweet-toothed for a taste.
I ordered a small luna rosso, which was...
Mezzetta, Serving Up Authentic Mezzes
A yummy restaurant review from BlogTO.
Finding Mezzetta Restaurant is like stumbling across a hidden treasure... right there in midtown Toronto. Not only does this St. Clair West hideaway offer up great service and irresistible value, they've got a truly original menu you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else in town.
Here, the cuisine is a little bit Greek, a lot Middle Eastern...
Sandwich Box - Toronto
My husband has been raving about this place for a while. I finally had a chance to check it out yesterday. It is amazing!!! The best sandwich I've ever had. The selection is fantastic. You can either select a recommended sandwich (I had the grilled veggies) or you can make your own. They have the most delicious bread selection. I had the rosemary focaccia. Wow! Everything comes with salad and.../center>
Reliable Fish & Chips: What's in a name? Everything.
An interesting review from BlogTO on Reliable Fish & Chips. Enjoy!
Sometimes the map is the territory.
I was prepared to be dazzled-- or in the absence of awe, hoping to at least buoy a Reliable Fish & Chips review on the raft of my unbridled anglophilia and the orthodoxy of an RC upbringing. I mean I wanted to love this place more than I want a new Exploding Hearts album. In the end...

Dine in Brooklyn 2007
Like Winterlicious in Toronto, Brooklyn is having their own restaurant sampling for a fixed price. We found this on the Gothamist. If you live in the New York area or plan to visit, this is for you.
From beastly brisket sandwiches to Bruni-sanctioned shrines to pork, Brooklyn has established itself as a dining destination worthy of a restaurant week all its own. Now in its fourth year, Dine in...
Food Re-Review: b Espresso Does Brunch
What?? b Espresso Bar is open on Saturdays? They serve brunch?? We recently noticed this fabulous post from blogTO and realised we've been seriously missing out. If you live in the Toronto area, you MUST check this place out. Everything there is amazing. Read on, lovelies and prepare to get very hungry.
The last time I reviewed b Espresso, I had lots of good things to say about their service...
You're bundled up to your eyeballs looking anything but fashionable as you hurry along the trendy Bloor St. Strip. Apparently, the Weather didn't get the memo that it's supposed to be spring already! You're fighting every urge to go shopping despite the warmth of the stores when you spot in the distance like an icy mirage, Far Coast, a gorgeous new 2 level cafe with big windows and...
