Blackbird Brasserie – Tache & Marion

We have a 4 pm service at St. Philip’s, and every second week we alternate between following it with a meal, or coffee and a snack. Yesterday was a coffee and snack day, and afterward a group of us went down for a meal at Blackbrid Brasserie. This was my first visit to the restaurant since I reviewed, although I do pick up their sandwiches from the Canteen which is the coffee shop attached to the restaurant. Given that the…Continue readingBlackbird Brasserie – Tache & Marion

Tipsy Cow with Le Burger Week Side

The Tipsy Cow is one of the newest entrants into the Winnipeg restaurant market. Located at 285 Portage Avenue, it’s the third restaurant to occupy that space in the last five years. I visited the space when it was La Bamba, but didn’t make it there when it was The Planit. However, it is close at hand to Holy Trinity, and so needing a place that was close at hand the other day, I decided to give The Tipsy Cow…Continue readingTipsy Cow with Le Burger Week Side

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.

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

It contains an interesting mix of tables for small groups along with a…Continue readingERA Bistro – Human Rights Museum

Peg Beer Co Burgers, Beer

Sadly, Peg Beer Company has gone out of business. My first trip for Le Burger Week took me to Deer + Almond. I thoroughly enjoyed that trip. So, for my second trip I wandered into the East Exchange to pay a visit to Peg Beer Co. This of course means trying to navigate my through the City of Winnipeg’s Construction Obstacle course. I swear the city must have someone whose job it is to look for promising new businesses opening…Continue readingPeg Beer Co Burgers, Beer

Deer + Almond Feat. Le Burger Week

As Le Burger Week is upon us, I decided to visit a couple of restaurants that needed a second visit. The first of these is Deer + Almond. The second is PegBeerCo, of which more another day. My main experience of Deer + Almond is through chef Mandel Hitzer’s involvement in Raw:Almond. A few months back I paid a visit over a lunch hour. I did the same this week taking in Le Burger Week special. One of the things…Continue readingDeer + Almond Feat. Le Burger Week
