Philly Cheese Steak: Shaved local beef, provolone cheese, on a garlic baguette - 2

J's comment > not bad; baguette not garlicky at all, but soft w a lovely crisp on the outside; beef juicy and tender, but would have loved some jus to go with it; cheese OK would have preferred a bolder flavored cheese in addition to the cheesy texture; chips very crisp, insanely addictive w the donair sauce

Garlic Fingers: Baked roasted garlic fingers w Halifax donair sauce + Chris Brothers Pepperoni - 2

J's comment > not bad; essentially a mini pizza... again, not very garlicky; pepperoni wasn't spicy at all, it was actually slightly sweet; donair sauce was decent w the pizza but better still w the chips above; dough slightly firmer than I like although it was on the thin side

Mini Perogies: Chris Brothers Pepperoni, sauteed onions, chipotle sour cream - 2

J's comment > not bad; soft perogies but w a good wrap, not mushy at all nor too hard; pepperoni OK, but was better on the garlic fingers

Lobster mac & cheese: Fresh lobster, mascarpone, parmesan and brie - 2

J's comment > obviously not swimming-out-of-the-tank fresh lobster, but not fishy at all, pretty decent for what it is; mac was OK but needed a lot more cheese
