So far I've only tried the lobster bisque and if that was any indication of the rest of the menu then we are in for a treat. I'm pretty sure I'll be satisfying my late nite cravings with the Bacon Date Brochette pretty soon!
I met Stephen and Matt and Chef Kasiran when they were renovating and I think we're going to get along great. We're already sharing some of our art with them and hopefully we'll see some space sharing ideas as they get busier and more well-known. Already they've made quite a splash on the street and it's great to see another restaurant opening up and serving quality local food.
The Makk on 124 has it's Grand Opening this Thursday, November 15th which happens to coincide with the opening of Anne McCartney's solo exhibit Layers of Alberta. Not to add to their stress we've opted to have our evening catered by the equally fabulous folks from The Dish and the Runaway Spoon who begin their movie nights again really soon and my table is booked for Love Actually!
124th street is a great place to be for small independent businesses. From restaurants to boutiques to hair salons to furniture stores and art galleries there is a whole bunch of passionate folks wanting to share that passion with you. If you haven't been down lately you should! Who needs the mall when you can shop 124th street and support your friends and neighbours?
Have a great week - and see you at the openings!
