At the beginning of the year, my friends and I decided to start getting together once a month for a nice dinner. While we do see each other quite frequently, we thought it’d be fun to class it up and try something new other than our regular haunts – and with that Fancy Food Fridays was born.
We meet on the 2nd Friday of every month for dinner. Someone is responsible for nominating 3 restaurants each time and then we vote. Our second FFF is coming up this week so I wanted to write a quick note about our first dinner before I fall too behind.
We went to Fire on the East Side which is located at the corner of Gloucester and Yonge. It’s a great, intimate place with friendly staff and great southern comfort food with a twist. I ordered a side of the Cajun Mac and Cheese to start followed by their crab ravioli. I admit it was a tad Carb heavy, but you just do not pass up Cajun Mac and Cheese! I’d been to FOTES before so I knew what I was getting into… and I regret nothing! You can see my previous review of them here.
After dinner we made our way to a nearby sports bar to watch some NCAAB action and played a few hours of trivia. It was a great night of food and friends – it’s no wonder why FFF is quickly becoming my favourite day of the month.
