  1. Lumiere just never seemed to regain its' cache after Feenie left. The Bistro side seemed still busy but signs were present, last time we were there was a Sunday Brunch and they had an "All you can Drink Bloody Caesar" promo.

    Pizza

    I guess taste is very subjective. I want nothing buttery or flaky about my pizza crust, I want it thin and crispy with a small bit of yeasty chewiness but certainly no butter and no flake, I'll leave that to my crust for quiche.
  3. Since poultry thighs are among the easiest things in the world to extract the bone, and skin, from why would you need to buy them boneless/skinless ?
  4. Wow, thanks for all the time you put into this Greg. Just found out the 2nd business dinner is at Watershed, which was recommended above. May have to go to DaddyDZ just to try the Que Wraps, sounds like Q meets Pork buns and that's a good thing.
  5. Greg, thanks for the info. I'm staying at the Hyatt Regency, I don't know where the 2nd business dinner is but the first one is at Bones. I am not planning on renting a vehicle.
  6. I'm visiting Atlanta on business in October, two nights are taken with business dinners but I'd like some recommendations for dinner for the other three nights. Ideally I'm looking for regional cuisine. I look forward to hearing from the locals. Also are there any places, regional or otherwise, that are "Can't Miss".
  7. Re: Brisket Stong's Market in Kerrisdale has Certified Angus Brisket on special this week (April 27 - May 3) for $4.50 a pound.
  8. It's an interesting scenario, what with Whole Foods owning Capers and the Safeway at 12th and Cambie being maybe the worst Safeway in existence. I fear for Choices.

    Smoking chefs

    Same applies to front of house, I'm asked "can you watch my section while I grab a smoke ?" so often that I've now started asking neighbouring servers "Can you watch my section while I stand outside and do nothing productive for 5 minutes ?" just to see their reaction. On topic I know many cooks who smoke but very few chef/sous chefs who do.
  10. So ShoreClub is open, Goldfish is open and Metro is, apparently, open. Just a couple of thoughts: 1) Aren't the people going to ShoreClub just going to be the ones who were already going to Gotham ? 2) Does Metro need a bit of PR ? I had a table in last night who had tried to go to Metro but couldn't find it !! 3) Who is going to fill all these seats, plus Player's, Italian Kitchen and a new Keg in Yaletown, come November ? Just wondering.
  11. Uruguayan Rib Eyes are on sale at Stong's this week - $6.98 a pound. Had them last night and they were excellent.
  12. It is a bleak wasteland Derek - at least as of 2 summers ago (2005). Please advise if you find any gems, or even attractive rocks.
  13. Always best to use your credit card, your bank will convert at a much more reasonable rate than individual merchants, currently our restaurant is giving 5%, which given the "posted exchange rates" of 12% is pretty fair. Banks and Government Liquor stores will offer better rates. Still 1:1 seems a bit lame, except for at the smokie cart.
  14. Too many is when not all of them sell, not enough is when your customers ask for more.
