Shopsys-Update:Plus:Marche,And Bloor Street Diner

Marc Bernstein | Jul 30, 2001 07:33 PM

Ok,time for a few updates. How is Shopsy's? Well,I don't go to the other locations,only the Front Street location. Last time I was there less than two weeks ago,(busy Sunday afternoon,service kind of slow) I had a hot tongue sandwitch-It was just a treat!!! Wonderful bread. Coffee(second cup) ok. The french fries and pickle were as good as in the old days. Ah,but wait!-Why doesn't Shopsy's bring back their sublime (now extinct) drink-Shopsy's "Red Pop Soda"!!!! And please bring back the old favorite:Mushroom+ Barley Soup!! The current one is a poor 21st century version!! I wish the Roast-Beef would still be served with Russian Dressing,and Cheese!! and Rare too!! Now,on to Marche. (Downtown-Front+Yonge) Still great place!! The stir-fries are really going "Bam!!" The Steaks are still as good as ever. The Chicken-Cornish Hen-Now that's meal,and a super-good one...Coffee is a strong point. But desserts:=well,well,well-!! What a variety!! How mouth-watering!! The pastas also are always very good. Inventive too. The soups-ok. There is such a terrific variety,and to walk around and watch everything being prepared in front of you,is always fun. Bloor Street Diner:Still unforgettable Prime Rib!! I have cousins from Cherry Hill,New Jersey,who really love prime rib-I may take them to Bloor Street Diner!! Only The Pub in Cherry Hill New Jersey is better for prime rib!! As for Chez Piggy,stay tuned for the next chapter. oh-one negative word:Four Seasons Studio Cafe-BLLEEECCCHHH!!!! (Sorry,I couldn't resist) The new menu+ chef there-good grief!! I suppose next they'll introduce "Lion Steak",with Horse-chestnuts+Garlic,With Creamed Skunk-Cabbage+Ragweed!!!
