The hottest place to be this summer is not the South of France, it's South of Bloor, on Bay Street (The Bloor Street Diner)."
"Your turn to pick up doughnuts and coffee for the morning meeting? Place your order at The Bloor Street Diner's L'Express, where sticky-sweet pastries and specialty coffees reign supreme."
"It's the skewers of whole free-range chickens, plump, golden-skinned, and turning and basting in their own juices that set me salivating. At $12.50, a half one of these three-pound birds with scrumptious mashed potatoes and a fragrant dollop of garlic mayonnaise textured with sun-dried tomatoes, is one of the best meals in the city."
"The old Bloor Street Diner reincarnates itself in a new Frenchified mega-complex including L'Express for snacking, Le Cafe with bar, terrace and les pool tables, and the slightly more formal Le Rotisserie “ all revolving around an open kitchen featuring state-of-the-art rotisseries from France."
"It's the menu of the more casual Le Cafe “with les pool tables and a terrace overlooking Bay Street that's most engaging. Here one is at ease, whether sipping and reading at midday or satiating late-night hunger pangs."
"Sometimes it just takes a gleaming steel rotisserie filled with row upon row of plump, free-range chickens roasting to a gleaming golden brown, to make you see things in a whole new light."
"The kitchen is staffed with a crew culled from the city's finest dining establishments. This place, devoted to the here and now, offers a vast array of possibilities. Just the kind of spot that Bloor Street was dying for."
