Tuc Craft Kitchen

For my birthday this year I made Fannypack take me to Tuc Craft Kitchen.  I’ve actually never heard of them and it was through looking on Urbanspoon for ratings and looking up menus, did I decide to go there. We came on a weekday quite early, so the place was quite empty.  But towards the […]

Browns Socialhouse

SheShe has finally returned from her mat leave and I was finally able to lock down a brunch date with her…believe me it’s been a super long time coming.  We decided to go somewhere close and Browns Socialhouse was our choice.  She has been there before numerous times for brunch and recommended it. We went […]

The Oakwood Bistro: Confit Tuna Benedict

Brunch at The Oakwood Canadian Bistro

Raincity Grill

Update:  This restaurant has closed. Groupon had a tasting menu deal for Raincity Grill, a place I had yet to visit, where 2 can dine for $95.  Wendy had taken her mother out for a previous Groupon tasting menu at Raincity and really enjoyed the meal, and since my mom was coming to visit I […]
