Back Again!!

Its been a while since my last post but that doesn't mean I've not been blogging -- check out my Grey Nomad blog and the newer blog, Nomad Eats.  I still have the plan to complete the site and flesh things out but life has got in the way and being rather lengthy in my blogs, well this one just hasn't happened.  My apologies.

Anyway this week I was in Toronto with my wife, Viv, and being a fan of the old Four Seasons lobby bar decided to check out the new place which is just down Yorkville Avenue.  I must say I liked the old place and its ambience. Celebs used to hang there -- apparently Russell Crowe was there once when I was having a drink, but he didn't come over.  The new hotel and the lobby bar -- the D Bar -- is very, very new indeed and consequently at the moment a little soulless.  I'm sure that will pass in time as the organisation run a great business very well.

So how were the cocktails?

The menu was new and sounded interesting and of all things had a new type of Negroni on it -- they called it a 'New' Negroni but this time with Green Chartreuse added, which is an old, old, old type of drink.  I used to drink it as an after dinner drink with ice, which was lovely.  I haven't seen a bottle anywhere for years.

And it was nice too!  Cute glass with a big round ice cube in it.  So good in fact that we had to have another before heading out to dinner.

I'll check it out again.
