Prairie Ink Restaurant McNally Robinson Booksellers

Prairie Ink Restaurant is the located inside the Grant Park location of McNally Robinson Booksellers. McNally is my new books, bookstore of choice. If you read any of my book reviews, the links to the books in them are usually links to McNally. For used books, I generally visit Bison Books. Prairie Ink falls into that category of: Restaurant I’ve visited many times, but never got around to writing about. In the good old Pre-Covid days, I went a few…Continue readingPrairie Ink Restaurant McNally Robinson Booksellers

Saint Ignatius Fall Fish Fry

Each year as I compile my Fall Suppers list, I’m always on the lookout for new suppers to add. Since the season runs until about the middle of November, I keep up the search well after I’ve originally posted. This year one of the new dinners that I came upon was the Fall Fish Fry at Saint Ignatius Church. Saint Ignatius Church is founded in memory of Saint Ignatius, the founder of the Jesuits. Among other things, the Jesuits are…Continue readingSaint Ignatius Fall Fish Fry

Seine River Cafe – Provencher Avenue

Every so often there’s a place that I’m very aware of, but never get around to visiting. Seine River Cafe is one such place. Located in a strip mall on Provencher Avenue, just past the Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain. I’m generally at the CCFM several times in a year, but never seem to make it the extra half block farther east. Perhaps I need to develop a habit of walking longer distances. Meanwhile my brother Bob dropped in for a visit…Continue readingSeine River Cafe – Provencher Avenue

I wrote this update for the White Star Diner on April 24, 2019. As always, new material is in bold. A few months ago, I…Continue readingWhite Star Diner – Kennedy Street

A & W – Pembina @ Plaza

For several years I lived just off Pembina and McGillivray. At the time I was a member at St. Vital EMC located originally at St. Mary’s and Bishop Grandin, then at Burland School. Being on the other side of the river, bus travel was a little tricky at times. However, the 16 route or the Dart were available at Pembina Highway and Plaza Drive. Given that there is often a bit of wait between the two buses, the A &…Continue readingA & W – Pembina @ Plaza

Johnny Gs – East Exchange

I didn’t get to much of the Fringe Festival this year, but I was there enough to look for new places to eat. One of the places I chose was Johnny Gs (apostrophe removed for SEO reasons). I had visited there many years ago. However it was so long ago, I don’t really remember anything about it. I do seem to recall the portions being large. There are two entrances to Johnny Gs. One will take to Wee Johnny’s pub…Continue readingJohnny Gs – East Exchange
