A few years ago I went to a restaurant called Culinaria - it's staffed by students of a chef school. It's the usual white table cloth European style fare. Still close enough for you I hope.The airport district is unfortunately better known for the high mileage strip clubs.
In truth, there aren't any. There's a half decent Chinese restaurant hiding in a nearby Doubletree airport hotel - Grand Chinese Cuisine. If you're willing to venture even a little farther, there are other options if Chinese is not your favourite.
Lucien is closed now. There is an Olde town oyster bar in its place. Rumour on the restaurant circuit they are just serving out their lease. Que supper club opened and closed in six weeks. I wonder how much money those owners sunk in that disaster.
Four time consecutive champion. One more and he matches the other German?
My father didn't want anywhere too posh so I took them to Tundra since it was closest to Roy Thomson not called Note Bene. The menu looked nice but the entrees were not. Even after the renovation, the service is a hit or miss - I'm the only one ordering wine and you forgot my wine order out of four people? And the food was uninspired to say the least. I did get an opera discount even though I was going to the symphony. I tried Zakkushi last week. I guess a sign of...
Speaking of food poisoning I was doing oysters and raw salmon at The Chase Fish & Oyster downstairs. It's either that or the dodgy shrimp cocktail I had at Far Niente. Anyway, I'm all better now. I finally made it to Guu Izakaya with a mate of mine. He is a Japanese-phile as in he can speak accent-less Japanese so he enjoyed it quite a bit. We sat the cooking bar. Don't sit there. It's noisy and if you're next to the till it's so busy. We were cut off from alcohol...
Alright mate
There is one plus to waiting for the PBS airing. You get to see the Christmas special in sequence right after the last episode whereas in the UK there is a wait of a month before you get the last tidbit. So does that mean we are not discussing the show until PBS or I must put spoiler tags over everything? I thought it was pretty interesting. I felt sorry for Sybil's daughter and with one of the upstairs people gone there are simply too many servants in the show. I'm...
Series 4 starts September 22 at 9:00 PM GMT! Pictures and Trailer O'Brien is gone. And somehow that maid who got fired is back.
I was at The Saint for brunch the other day. We had the devilled eggs (every table has the devilled eggs), duck scramble and duck confit benedict. Barely any duck in the duck scramble but otherwise very filling. People keep moaning about the service at this place and to be honest it wasn't too bad. I also tried Rock Lobster on a Thursday night. I have no idea why this place needs a second location. I strolled in a little before 9pm on a Thursday and it was dead. I...
