ISO: dirty vodka martini with blue-cheese-stuffed olives

Hey, 'Hounders:

Can anyone recommend a bar in Toronto (preferably downtown) that will serve a dirty vodka martini accompanied by olives stuffed with blue cheese?

    1. I don't know of any place, sorry... but just have to say this sounds so good I'm going to try it at home!

        Me too. That sounds absolutely sublime. And a bit dangerous. Isn't there someplace at St. Lawrence Market that sells stuffed olives?

          I think I've seen blue-cheese-stuffed olives at Scheffler's in the SLM.

            Yeah, I've boughten them a few times. They also have some stuffed with goat cheese and roasted pepper goat cheese.

      2. I had several memorable martinis just like this in Chicago, almost a dozen years ago. So glad you asked this question, and will be even more so if someone comes up with the name of a Toronto bar that serves 'em.

          Funny you should say that, Suzanne, because I heard of it from someone in Chicago - maybe it's a Chicago thing, then?

          I've had one report that Ki serves them - have yet to verify....

          1. I'm not sure why the post keeps getting deleted (maybe the mods think the poster is just being rude?), but apparently Bite Me has one.
