In Line for Chinese

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

A couple of weeks ago I had a rare, but excellent opportunity to dust off my drinking shoes and hit the town. A good buddy was without family for the first time in months and it was decided that a night out would be an appropriate course of action. Drinks at the house would be followed by drinks at a bar. As it turned out a few other friends were interested in

Sushiphile

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

I love sushi. But it’s a tough romance to endure in Charlottetown. Until very recently the options for sushi on the Island have been limited. Really, there were only two choices: Monsoon Tea House on University Avenue, which limits its hours of operation and is often closed for long stretches; or sushi from the grocery store, which for me is generally

Citizens Rejoice

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

For the last few years Montague has been a bit of a void when it comes to restaurant dining. In fact, I can’t say for sure there’s a restaurant open year round aside from the Pizza Delight and The Dynasty (a Chinese restaurant for those not familiar). So to say there’s little to offer someone looking for a good, chef-prepared meal in February is almost an

I Can’t Believe It

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

I was thinking the other day about all the places I’ve written about over the years. Naturally, that led me to think about all the places I haven’t written about, and the reasons why. After much consideration, I’ve come to certain conclusions about both the restaurants and the reasons. So this month I present my first ever “I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Written

Finding Your Feet

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Restaurants are a tough racket. More than any other business they dance a fine line between success and failure. Often that line can be as simple as a few bad meals, or a few bouts with bad service. People seem to listen closer when you relay a bad experience and word can travel fast especially around here.

That’s why I have tremendous respect for anyone brave
