Reeeeeeb - Eye!
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 11:28pm [Dine in]

I just love the rib eye steak here. I like the cut. The natural juices. Perfect amount of salt to bring out the flavour. It is so well crafted. For appetizer, I definately would recommend the whole fois gras. Extremely fatty, but hey, you only live once. And unless you're a Howe Street suit running a a ponzee scheme, you don't get to eat here everyday.

$25 tenderloin - best deal in town
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 11:24pm [Dine in]

I don't know why I would write about this deal because it'll just make this join busier and harder to get reservos. But honestly, for $25, this steak is the best bang for your buck in this city. Extremely tastey and perfect portions. Great timing and execution by kitchen staff and served to paying customers with perfect temperature.

Excellent cocktails . . . help you forget about the food
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 11:07pm [Dine in]

Always be apprehensive about walking into a chinese restaurant, but no one who works there is chinese. Congee was way too salty and overpriced. The braised pork was way too tough. I mean, go to a real Shanghainese restaurant, and you'll find it's suppose to be super tender. Oh and get this. They serve fish soup here. You never see fish soup at Cantonese restaurants. It's just too low brow when you can have shark fin, abalone, ginseng, or buddhist soup. Oh well, the cocktails were quite tastey at least. I tried the one with beet juice, and the chinese margarita. The yuppy white professionals at the next table really enjoyed their food. I mean, the one woman was having orgasms at the table.

Straight up food
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 10:59pm [Dine in]

Food is healthy tasting eg. low sodium, low fat. Texture of the food isn't quite as refined as I expect but at least it does not affect the flavour which is mild, not overbearing, but natural. I generally have had a good experience here. I never got to try any of Jean Georges restaurants before so the expectations were quite high, although it doesn't sound like he has much involvement at the Vancouver location. Nevertheless, I think David Foot (or whatever his name is) is doing a good job. Would like to see some signature dishes on their menu ie. a dish that makes you want to come back again and again. Black truffle pizza is a good start.

Lunch was soggy and lukewarm
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 10:39pm [Dine in]

At first, I actually didn't mind the Ikea style cafeteria interiors because I only wanted a bowl of ramen, but apparently it's been taken off the menu by the chef. So I went for the $24 lunch fix prix menu instead which was served airplane style in little boxes that fit tightly on a tray. I usually don't mind small portions, anticipating the berkshire pork wonton appetizer which literally is only one wonton in a very tiny cup of broth (both bland, lukewarm and failed to bring out the natural taste of the berkshire pork). Salad was deconstructed with a measly romaine leaf, and a few slices of chilled beef. Tandoor chicken was soggy and burnt on the edges, as thought they microwaved it, and totally drowned the rice with water content of chicken and runny curry. cheesecake was like a 1/4 slice. and orange juice was $6 a glass, so don't order seconds thinking refills are complimentary, because they are not. I wonder if the dinner experience will be different. More detailed cooking? Fresher ingredes? More gourmet, less street food re-creations? How much better can a $16 Vietnamise Banh Mi sandwich be?

Mods and Hipsters
Submitted Wednesday, February 6, 2008 - 10:26pm [Dine in]

My brother thought he was in LES/Williamsburg when he ate here with me one night.

In one afternoon, my buddee looked at everyone in the restaurant, and thought we walked into some time warp straight into 1962.

I like the furniture: 60s glitter star laminate tables a la milk shake joint. My grandparents have the same table.

Food: Nachos are killer. Pleasant green salad with pear shoe strings. Burger did not really leave an impression on me. but the chili was tasty.

I like the waitresses, especially with flat shoes and low cut tshirt. the cooks are sweaty hipsters with low worn brims and beards.

Turkish? I don't think so. Overcooked lamb.
Submitted Wednesday, September 12, 2007 - 6:39pm [Dine in]

I was upset that my lamb was dry, tough, and overcooked. It was a big chunk of overcooked gamey mutton. Horrible. Gave me nightmares for days. And it was covered with a cheese whizesque type sauce. First off, I've never seen turks serve massive chunks of nasty meat. They use only the freshest meats, keep portions comfortable, and cook with light seasoning if any at all, which is how i like my food to taste. I've never seen sauces, except maybe on mousaka.

The humous was unforgivable. They poured nasty vinegar all over it. Now why do they have to go and do that?
