    Bloom has consistently been one of the Rabbit-sister's favourite restaurants (she's a west end-y).

    Unfortunately, after her birthday dinner last month, Rabbit-sister reported that Bloom seemed to be slipping. I don't have all the particulars on why it seemed off, but I know she was somewhat disappointed. Off night or downward spiral... I dunno?

      Thanks for the reply Rabbit. I have never been there before so I have nothing to compare to know if it is slipping or not.

      I think I'm going to check it out though.

      I've always liked Sam Gassira's food. Very inventive with great flavours and ideas.

        The last time I ate there was for Winterlicious in April. It was very good.

          ohh- I'm still BURNING from an incident last fall there. We had a rezzie for about 10 people, showed up an hour late (but called and were told was ok)- when we got there (around 9:30) we had to re-order three times because the waitress was taking our order and THEN coming back to tell us one-by-one that things weren't available. It was a downhill slide from there-

            Numma-don't forget about the part where, to apologize for the problems, they sent out some complimentary side dishes..AND THEN CHARGED US!
