So Very Grand

Might as well wrap up my Parkdale posts-in-limbo with Grand Electric. Chef Colin Tooke and Ian McGrenaghan’s place has been on fire since it opened with 2-hour waits. Reminiscent of Big Star in Chicago (these ex-Black Hoof kids went and did some recon… Continue Reading →

Mot Na Son's Chip-cut Noodle Soup

Amazing Acadia

I’d taken many photos at Acadia over the last several months, and while I’ve never managed to capture the dishes to my satisfaction, they’ll have to do. Last month, Chef Matt Blondin announced he was slated to join team Momofuku Toronto and I… Continue Reading →
