Drums N Flats at Avenue and the 401

I finally had an opportunity to check out this new resto on Avenue north of Lawrence. This venture is headed by the lads that own Safari down the road. Although the food at Safari has never been great, I was hoping for more at the new digs. Sadly, I was wrong. It's a large space and they've obviously spent a ton to get it up and running. Lots of T.V.'s to watch the Leafs, if they ever come back!

The beer selection is fine, but the menu is a disaster. Who owns a sports bar where you can't get a burger? Forget a decent burger.....they have none! That left me with the wings. I like wings, so I ordered the hot ones. For the first time in my dining life, I actually asked for my money back! They were inedible. The staff were gracious enough to provide me with a refund and a mild apology.

I will not go back as this is not a growing pains situation. The food was terrible. This leaves a huge hole in the neighbourhood, as The Bistro on Avenue Road, which has great food and tremendous atmosphere is being forced to move to make room for condo's. I know that the owner is looking for another small location in the area, but if he fails......we're taking our lucrative wing/beer business to another street.

Drums N Flats was just that.....flat!!
