Is This Thing On?

Wow, that was quite a layoff, much longer than I'd expected. Sorry about that! There's been some sporadic fooding in the last month, and I'll have a few posts up later this week about munchies in the neighborhood. We hit up Loulou the other night, and it was grand as always. I finally got to try abistro, and while the food was good, the service was less so. More on that later.

Busy-ness has kept me from doing much of my own cooking lately, but we'll be heading up to Arthur Ave sometime very soon, which always precedes lots of goodness.



One piece of exciting local food news is that Il Porto, the new Italian place on Washington is now open! Thanks to Myrtle Shuffle for the heads up. I haven't been able to check it out yet, but rest assured I will soon. I also have yet to try the restaurant that Il Torchio turned into, but I've heard good things so far. Myrtle Shuffle has a good write-up on the opening night party.

A quick random question for you guys: Which is better, 67 Burger or Five Guys? I prefer 67, but this sparked a heated debate the other night. Might have to have a burger-off one of these days...

We had such horrifyingly rude service at abistro that we vowed never to go back.
