Bruyea Brothers and Lobby?

I am thinking of going to these two recently opened restaurants and I would like to know if anyone has been and their thoughts.

Lobby is on Bloor just west of Avenue Road. I heard they have wonderful Kobe Burgers.

Bruyea Brothers is on College and Grace but I haven't heard a peep about this place though the menu looks yum.

    One of the Bruyea Brothers owned a fast-food type place under First Canadian Place and the food there was quite good - mostly pastas and pizzas. One of the brother's wives was my former boss and she always "hired" him to cater our events. The food was always good.

        My boyfriend and I are often sceptical about "trendy" restaurants. However, Lobby has received some good reviews (e.g. Toronto.com), so we thought we'd go for a drink and get some appetizers to test the water. Unfortunately, the scantly dressed bartender couldn't even make a manhattan or a sidecar. We gave up. We took one look at the menu, and everything was mainstream crowd pleasing dishes - vegetable croquette, sweetbread with mashed potatoes - you get the idea.

        For $80 per head (including wine) I would go to Crush or the new Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar, where the restaurants don't have to use practically naked waitresses to distract people from the mediocre dishes.
