They’re served naked straight from the smoker with barbecue sauce supplied on the side with a brush for your own freedom and convenience to add as much or as little as you please!  In addition to ribs, there are southern comfort food sides that are evenly priced at $3.90 some of which include;  sweet options like candied yams and baked beans, collard greens, dirty rice, cheesy grits, shoestring potatoes, sweet potato waffle fries and buttermilk onion ring and mac n’ cheese!

The Thompson Diner: 

The Thompson Diner (formerly, The Counter), is the Thompson Hotel’s trendy 24-hour diner, a spin off the classic diner theme. Just south of King on Bathurst, this restaurant is decidedly more upscale in appearance but still provides a great selection of some good old comfort food.  The sleek and retro décor and huge red velvet booths is what makes up this large space! The menu offerings include; fries, onion rings, which come with choices of dips like garlic aioli! But if you made your way to the diner, it only seems right to try one of The Thompson Diner’s famous burgers (with options that are available on veggie, turkey and of course the classic beef)! There is also a wide selection of toppings to choose from that graciously decorate these huge tower-like burgers!  Most burgers arrive on a wooden cutting board, generously topped with your choice of comfort goodness like melted jalapeno jack cheese, spinach, crispy fried onions, lettuce and tomato. Large, messy, and maybe a challenge to eat, but the comfort it provides to the palate keeps everyone coming back for more! For location and menu details click here: http://www.thompsondiner.com/

Coming soon to Front + Bathurst

Our newest condominium project is in the works, albeit still at the conception stage. This Front and Bathurst community is being designed by Wallman Architects, the masterminds behind the amazing design at Minto30Roe. There isn’t too much we can say about the project itself at this point, but its location alone makes it one to register for. The project will be surrounded on all sides by some of our favourite things about Toronto.

Directly to the south is Billy Bishop Airport making a weekend jaunt to NYC easier than ever. The Toronto Island ferry docks are just to the east, as well as Harbourfront Centre and HTO Park. Other nearby attractions include Fort York and the CNE.

Just northwest of the site are King West and Queen West, two fantastic neighbourhoods for shopping, restaurants and nightlife. There’s easy access to the Gardiner Expresway and a streetcar stop right at the corner making it easy to get to the Financial District, or anywhere else the TTC goes. Design and location will come together beautifully at Bathurst and Front. We can’t wait to tell you more! In the meantime, click here to register and we’ll make sure you’re kept in the loop.
