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

Beer and Tea

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

The lanky fiddler is wearing a top hat and leading a tagrag and bobtail band in a mad symphony of reels and jigs. A teenager is playing the bodhran, chewing on a straw, faraway plans lurking in his eyes. Irish set dancers bow and twirl and click their heels. A table of women put their heads together, gossiping. A lady is knitting socks. The barmaids are horsing

In a Class of Its Own

I’m Dining Out Here

He was also behind the Urban Eatery at the Confederation Court Mall. His newest, and most involved endeavor is Lot 30 on Kent Street in Charlottetown. It’s earning a reputation as one of the finest restaurants
