Reuse at Sarah's Cafe
Sarah's Cafe has a brand-new menu which now also features two dishes from the closed "The Cork and the Cabbage" (who thought that was a good name?). The mac and cheese with truffles and the fisherman's pie, both labelled with "As seen on Restaurant Makeover".
As the episode shows, the husband of the owner of Sarah's (who ran the now closed bistro) got these two dishes created for him, and now they are available again. I was intrigued by their description when I watched that episode, so I am happy they are available somewhere.

This place is absolutely awful. We were just there for brunch and there were a number of issues, starting with waiting forever to be properly acknowledged by the one server they have working (who does that?). The food was just as awful as the service, I wont even go in to detail, you will just have to trust me. I feel a bit nauseous.
And they don't have those RM dishes any more, either.
I go there for beer because it's close. The beer is good.
I've been lucky in that my meals have always been mediocre (no flavour brunch is an example), and the service was never bad, although sometimes a bit awkward/amateurish.
The owner can be a bit abrupt sometimes, too, when she is serving you. Eastern European lady, not sure if she is still doing server duties or not...
This is an establishment in search of an identity. Is it a beer bar or a restaurant? It doesn't really do either very well. I'm a beer lover and their beer list is always woefully out of date ("Sorry, we don't have that. Sorry, we don't have that"). And their draft beer is typically in poor condition. The food doesn't excite me at all.
I think they coast a bit on the fact that there aren't a lot of decent eateries along that part of the Danforth (yet).
