Finding quality restaurants in the East End is hard. With my mom in town for a visit this weekend, Aline and I tried to take advantage of the babysitting services and try out a new place to eat.
Without much success.
Using our Entertainment 2009 book as a guide, we first we tried to go to Paddy O’Dea’s on Cyrville Rd. Turns out it’s closed for business. Then we tried to go to Bellagio’s on Montreal Rd. which we discovered is now a sushi bar. 0-2 we returned for a second visit to where we had gone once before last April 2008.
Staff and ambiance were great. Food not so much. Presentation was great but taste was middling. Aline had the tenderloin steak pasta and I tried the dinner special which consisted of a veal wrap with spinach, shrimp and a peppercorn sauce. Both dishes were way too salty.
We’ll try elsewhere next time.
