As mentioned, if anyone remembers, we bought tickets back in March to see opera at the Cinema on Queen live from the New York Met Opera House. Included in the package was a dinner choice at any one of 7 different restaurants. We chose Joy.
Arrived at 5:15 p.m. and received tasty bread & a lovely spread mixture to put on it. Don't ask me exactly what was in it, but it was grand.
Next came our appetizers - hubby order antipasto - very fresh & tasty. I ordered live pate with crispy crackers. Don't believe the pate contained any brandy, so don't quite know what was in it. Didn't like it as much as pate flavoured with brandy, but didn't leave a morsel.
We both ordered Beef Ribs with what they call cous-cous, but didn't look like it; however, they contained shitake mushrooms, red pepper & greens and was delicious.
Hubby had dessert of peanut butter icecream over stawberries & cake. i passed.
Out of our own pocket for the night, were one Creemore, one huge glass of Australian Red Wine, and one Sherry for hubby, plus 2 coffees. That bill came to $33.00....we left our very attentive & friendly waitress a $10.00 tip.
All in all, after seeing some negative reviews of Joy on Chowhound, i would have to say that we not only enjoyed the dinner, but the sunny side of the deck opposite the park & all the doggies out for playtime.
We will go back.
