My friends Paul and Joanne are home for a summer visit from Doha, Qatar. They’ve been living there for the past three years and last night we took them downtown to grab a bite.
See, when they come home their schedule is jam packed with family visits, sightseeing and time at the cottage so it had been a while since they were there for a night.
We started at the new Esca and then made our way to Bar Q. They were blown away by how nice the places were, how amazing the service was and of course how delicious the food was from presentation to taste.
They have one week left and plan on going back maybe even twice to sample more.
The lesson here is when you have out of town guests, downtown is a great place to showcase the city and the choices are plenty with restos like Schnitzles, Table 21, Truffles and Moustache Joe’s to also choose from.
Even if you’re from here…GET DOWNTOWN!
