Warning (as if you needed a warning)

Not that I expect anyone on here would need this warning, but...
DO NOT go to Mr. Green Jean's in the Eaton Centre. Even if you're meeting very close friends you haven't seen for much too long and they insist. They will survive. You might not.

I was prepared for thoroughly mediocre food. I was not so prepared to pay $20 tax+tip for a soggy "jerk" (that's Eaton Centre for "hot sauce") chicken sandwich, sweet potatoe fries and an iced tea. I think five of those dollars went toward the oil that was left on my plate after I (tried to) finish the fries. And the service is surly (I guess that's what service plates of fries with glasses of water to thirteen year olds all day will do).

Now let us never speak of it again.

  1. Bad food in the Eaton's Centre... Who would have guessed? (Insert sarcasm)

      They still call it the Eaton's Centre? That's odd since there is no Eaton's.

        Apparently that's what it's called at the entrances... unless my mind is screwing with me :S

        I will admit that both Mr. Greenjeans and Baton Rouge are both heinous, but City Grill (just below Mr. Greenjeans) is pretty good.

          Uh, forget what I said about City Grill being good... went there this weekend and everyone in our party was subjected to bad (and boring!) food. I will not be returning.

        1. Green Jeans was good in the '80s when it was on has sucked since it moved to the Eaton's's a tourist trap of the highest order.

            I believe the EC location was a 2nd Green Jeans. Amazed it's still around. Do they still sell rainbow shoelaces?

            1. re: malcolmjolley

              that's what was on my sandwich! i thought it was some sort of dried out fruit... but it could totally have been shoelaces.

          2. this started my day with a giggle. Duly noted.

            1. Yeah, but it's a great place to out & drink after work if you happen to be employed nearby...

              Didn't this also get reviewed recently in the star?
