  • MONTREAL: LE P’TIT PLATEAU

    Sep 5, 13 • 97 Views • BYOB, FRENCH, MONTREAL, REVIEW, WINEComments Off on MONTREAL: LE P’TIT PLATEAU

    Fresh air, fabulous friends, Bring Your Own Wine, and foie gras = not a complaint in the world. I’m a BYOB convert, plain and simple. Not that I’d ever need much convincing of BYOB’s greatness, but there you go. Edmonton is woefully lacking...

    If you want the fine dining experience, you have to pay the price and Ruth’s Chris (while pricey) manages to tick all of the fine dining boxes: fabulous food, attentive service, and a beautifully romantic restaurant ambience. I did a bit of research...

    Pampa is one of my favourite restaurants in the city and, despite the hefty price tag, serves up an impeccable dining experience that’s extremely difficult to beat. There’s buffets, there’s steakhouses…and then there’s Pampa. The...

  • TZIN WINE AND TAPAS

    Feb 27, 13 • 93 Views • EDMONTON, REVIEW, TAPAS, WINEComments Off on TZIN WINE AND TAPAS

    Tzin is a perfectly delightful hole-in-the-wall restaurant that serves amazing food from a selective yet professional Spanish tapas menu. My first impression of this restaurant (as you’ll have seen if you follow me on Twitter) was that it was...

  • Privada wine+tapas

    Jan 29, 13 • 107 Views • EDMONTON, REVIEW, SPANISH, TAPAS, WINEComments Off on Privada wine+tapas

    This restaurant was my birthday choice, simply because there’s no better thing than enjoying delicious tapas, delicate wines, and all kinds of cheeses in the dead of winter (especially in Canada). My expectations were high, based on the reviews and the...
