A Tale of Two Lobsters

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Aside from traditional lobster suppers there have been few restaurants over the years that have had menus focused exclusively on lobster. A good many restaurants have one lobster dish on the menu. Seafood restaurants often have two or three. But it’s rare to see either the majority or the entirety of a menu dedicated to the Island’s favourite crustacean. But two suc

by Andrew Sprague

They got you started early on restaurant food at Glen Stewart Elementary in the 80s. Within eye shot of the school back then were Southport’s only two dining establishments; Dagwood’s Pizzeria and Kentucky Fried Chicken. The school had a deal set up where on specific days of the week parents could buy cou

Newborn Babe

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Opening a new restaurant is a lot like having a baby. I might be saying that because I have babies, or rather a baby, on my mind constantly these days, and most of my time is spent thinking about what to do with said baby. Regardless, I see a lot of similarities.

For starters, being a good chef is a lot like being good in bed. You cook a couple of enjoyable meals,

New this Season

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

My seven-month-old boy Charlie has recently taken to napping in the stroller. That’s led to a dramatic increase in the number of long afternoon walks around Charlottetown. It’s great exercise and it gets us out of the house, which has been nice. We usually walk until he wakes which can be anywhere from forty five minutes to an hour. We mostly follow the same rou

Cy’s Matters

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

I can count on one hand the number of times I was at the original Cy’s Lunch on Spring Park Road in Charlottetown. It was a combination convenience store and grill. I never ordered from the grill or spent more than two minutes in the place. I assumed the owner was named Cy but I didn’t know his last name. I remember it closing down a few years ago, but I never hea

Hair of the Dog

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

The text read “I’m taking you guys out to lunch so sober up!” It was just after noon on Saturday morning in New York City and I was feeling close to death. Four longtime friends and I were in town for a long weekend and our enthusiasm got the better of us on the first night. We got very, very drunk, and stayed out unnecessarily late. I felt like I’d been run over by a tr

A la sazon

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Time management has taken on a whole new meaning since having a child. The day is broken into about five chunks of two to three hours, each separated by a nap that could last anywhere between thirty minutes and two hours. It can be difficult to plan ahead to be somewhere at any particular time. You really just have to go with it and have a rough plan to go somewhere

Renewed Optimism

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

For as long as I can remember I've been a fan of the Merchatman Pub in Charlottetown. I always liked the staff and the casual pub atmosphere agreed with me. The food was always high quality and the service was snappy to say the least. More than anything else though, the Merchantman Pub had a good feel to it. It was comfortable and at ease.

About a year ago the

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Jinny and I welcomed our first child on May 28th at the Prince County Hospital in Summerside. We chose to go to the PCH after hearing great reviews from a few of our who friends who had children there. They had nothing but good to say about both the facilities and the staff. After a quick tour of the maternal unit we asked for a referral and ended up with a great

Well Fed
Well Fed
by Andrew Sprague

I’m Dining Out Here

My love affair with restaurants began in the early eighties at Myron's Old Spain on Kent Street in Charlottetown. I was four or five and the waitress knew my dad. I can't remember specifically what she did, but she made me feel pretty good about myself. I think she tickled me at one point. When she brought the food I could hardly contain my excitement. The chicken

I’ll Have the Burger

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

There has never been a better local food promotion than Burger Love. No promotion has ever seen the level of public engagement and participant payoff enjoyed by Burger Love. Several restaurants were reporting over a thousand burgers sold in the first twelve days of the month long event. That’s almost a hundred burgers a day. Social media channels were inundated w

Benefits of Smoking

by Andrew Spraque

I come from a smoking home. Dad smoked. Mom smoked. Both my sisters smoked. I think I was the last one to take them up seriously. I remember my first one. I was just about seventeen. I was driving down a country road with a girl I had a desperate crush on. She smoked and she made it look awesome. So I asked for one and lit it up. I felt like I'd reached a new level of cool. I was
