The Apollo never disappoints

The Apollo never disappoints

Although Greater Sudbury has many good places to eat, and some that are great, it’s safe to say the majority of us return to the same two or three restaurants over and over again to order our favourite things. When it comes to food, most of us don’t like surprises. The Apollo on The Kingsway [...]

Creme Brulee satisfies connoisseur’s taste

Creme Brulee satisfies connoisseur’s taste

The name Alexandria’s conjures up images and scents of the Middle East with its heart-healthy food, pleasing aromas and varied tastes. It’s been a long time since I last ate at Alexandria’s, and it was almost comforting to see the same waitresses ushering patrons to their seats and greeting them with genuine pleasure. Looking around, [...]

With room for around 50 people, the place was already nearly half full when we arrived at Pluckers Wings and Things in the South End for an early dinner around 5 pm. (There is a second location in Val Caron.) The restaurant is decked out in country and western paraphernalia with a sound track to [...]

Lots of choice at Azian on Barry Downe

When I arrived in Sudbury 16 years ago, all Asian cuisine was found at one of the many Chinese food restaurants that existed. These were the type of establishments familiar to all Canadians as just about every town and city in this country boasts at least one. In the last few years, Sudbury has been [...]

The Hourglass provides urban, chic experience

Shortly before our departure to the restaurant, the phone rings. The babysitter is calling from the hospital to let us know he won’t be available to sit for us. We debate about what to do. Should we stay or should we go? The Hourglass Restaurant and Lounge lists its menu on its website. I had [...]

Mr. Prime Rib

My mother is from England, a place where Sunday afternoon dinner usually meant a roast of beef. This is a tradition she carried on after she immigrated to Canada. Since I craved a traditional roast beef dinner, it only made sense to go to Mr. Prime Rib, a restaurant that has been a tradition in [...]

Hardrock ’42

The owners of Sudbury’s newest restaurant have years of experience working for others. The time was right for Jason Heaton and Dave Temmerman to open their own place. “We loved working for other people, now we love working for ourselves,” says Temmerman. Hardrock42 Gastropub opened at the end of May in the Days Inn downtown. [...]

Sophisticated cafe/wine bar opens downtown

Cinco Centavos is “an uptown room for the downtown crowd,” according to its business card. We arrive at The Cinco Centavos (translates in Spanish to five cents or nickel) and are warmly greeted by both the server and cook. We are told to sit anywhere. The room is small but cozy with 10 or 11 [...]

Todd and Conway’s excellent steak adventure

Two chaps, with a flare for fine food, Todd Robson and Conway Fraser, were tasked with finding out just who’s serving the best cuts of meat in Greater Sudbury. The rules were simple: restaurants had to be locally owned and operated. No franchises. It was a difficult, yet delicious journalistic journey. THE HOURGLASS RESTAURANT AND [...]
