A Plea to Chefs: What's With the Consistently Cold Food?

Local foodie fed up with with cold dishes served at "hot" restaurants.

I eat out every day, and I'm exhausted by so-called better restaurants that continue to deliver dishes that are supposed to be served hot served tepid. I know Toronto's a cold city, but this is just silly.

It occurs to me that I should probably just start cooking for myself. Up until now, I thought it was too much trouble (time=money), but very few places seem to be able to get it right, so I might as well save myself some $$$.

i don't understand why so many chefs insist on sending out lukewarm food. I know I'm fussy and a bit weird, but I tip well and, believe it or not, recommend places to pals. Don't you have a fixed overhead? Wouldn't it help to have a regular customer who helped out a bit with the rent?

If not and you don't want me there, c'est la vie. But I heard there's a recession on, and I would think champions, not complainers, would help just now.
