2 very different reviews of Hey!

Just found if kind of interesting that 2 reviews come out in the same week and are at polar opposites of the spectrum. Steven Davey in NOW gives it a glowing, NNNN review; while Chris Nuttall-Smith in Saturday's Globe and Mail goes so far as to give it no stars. Thoughts?

  1. The NOW review seems to cover only Brunch, which is usually a no-brainer anyway. Chris NS mentioned that Bower was only around for 10 minutes at a time. Well, he owns other places, and Hey! On Roncey is open from 8 or 9 AM right through to 10PM seven days a week, closing from 3 to 5:30 each day to rest its staff. I'm surprised that Bower turned up as much as he did....

      I heard Bower's new-born just had heart surgery. Maybe that has something to do with any absences.
