Winnipeg Restaurants

Hey,
I am unaware of a thread to discuss the merits of Winnipeg Restaurants.
(If one already exists, please merge this thread into it).

I have a very specific question:

Where can one get Chicago Deep Dish Pizza in Winnipeg?
Who here has ordered the "Chicago Deep Dish" Pizza from Chicago Phils?
Was it good?

I had a pizza at Chicago Phil's around 7 years ago, and it was completely inedible. For fantastic, genuine, Chicago pizza, visit Chicago.

Yep, I think you have a point. I'm planning to go there with my Wife, since its within a 2-day drive from Winnipeg. Never been. I'll get the real thing there.

As for what is deep dish pizza:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago...#Stuffed_pizza

btw, thanks for the restaurant info.
How about good cheap (and maybe greasy) places to go for breakfast?

I'm aware of:
Stellas,
The Nook
The Falafel Place
Country Porch
Nick's (in Headingley)

I like Garwood Grill, both for pizza and greasy breakfasts.

Love Ray and Jerry's - was there for lunch in the bar the other day. I hate to admit it, but i look forward to funerals because they may serve those tasty roll up sandwiches.

Thumbs up Kawaii Crepe in Osborne Village

Has anyone seen the signage go up for Kawaii Crepe in Osborne Village. Looks like it will be a great crepe place, sounds like they are opening this coming Saturday.

Segovia Tapas Bar and Restaurant also just opened in Osborne, just on Stradbrook. Has anyone gone there yet? I want to give it a try.

I'm pretty sure the food in cafe 22 is made by pizza hotline. I personally love it because it's cheap and good.

FYI Luxesole has closed down, but they still have their Luxa Lune lounge next door, though I've never been.

I've been to Bistro 7 1/4 twice, and was disappointed with the food both times. It's the kind of place that I want to love--it's unique and has that funky bistro vibe--but I think they need to work some things out on their menu.

Just went to Rae and Jerry's for the first time for lunch and it was SO GOOD. And retro.

I have to agree with picks #1 and #3..

The Princess Street Grill is always a good source of a cheap breakfast.

And I'll add Yuki's, the Confusion Grill and the old diner that Kraut King has setup into the mix.

As far as fine dining went, I miss the old Gilroy's on Bannatyne and the Mertens rooftop patio that offered perhaps the best skyline view in the whole city from atop of that apartment block on Oakland Ave.

For some reason Princess Grill seems to get better every time I go there. Maybe it's just me...

Bindy's is great if you like roti. Spudtino's on Stafford was great as was Cafe Carlo.

One particularly over rated place I went to was Fusion Grill. Food was very expensive and just so-so, and the room was absolutely filthy.

Another cool place for me has always been eating at the Terrace Dining hall at Assiniboia Downs.

Said experience is made even better when your horse wins.

hmmmm... Gondala... I haven't had edible paper thin cardboard pizza in a long time. maybe this weekend! Thanks TV for reminding me.

1ajs...deep dish is exactly that, it's baked in a deep dish. Pizza Hut is borderline deep dish, but nothing like the real stuff. When in the states I go to Chicago Uno which is a chain but has a decent 'za.

the paddlewheel in the bay for sheer nostalgia and uniqueness.. where else can you get jell-o, noodle salad and a beer?

for a grease fix, i say vj's drive in wins.
casual/lounge - confusion corner is great!
pasquale's on marion for italian can be great as well.. best caesar salad in town!
