50 thoughts on “Let’s Do Lunch Downtown

  1. I’m a huge fan of Asian inspired cuisine, so I’ll definitely be interested in visiting Hu’s on First! FIRST! 🙂

  2. The beef tenderloin at Amici sounds amazing! But I’m a sucker for quality sushi at a great price so my first choice would have to be the deluxe sushi combo at Samurai 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh, how do I pick! It would be a toss up between pickerel at Beachcomber’s or beef tenderloin at Amici’s. Wow, all these choices. Good to know.:)

  4. Hmm… it all looks so good! I’d say either the bean chili or classic 8″pizza from The palm lounge Fort Garry. I don’t eat much meat so it’s nice seeing something more than salad offered 🙂

  5. I would really like to win the Hu’s on first card! Every time I go to the Goldeyes games it gets lost in the shuffle of all the great food that’s at the ballpark and I keep meaning to stop by and eat there!

  6. My son and I are going to muddy waters- he is determine to try their four patty, chili covered burger and a pound of fries : / I admit if he finishes it I am not sure if I will be proud or grossed out. Me I am going for their onoinrings Yum!

  7. I would definitely like to try Amici !!! The menu looks amazing and the prices are sooooo reasonable. I have heard it is very good but have never had an opportunity to try Amici’s.

  8. The ‘Pesce del Giarno’ at Amici sounds absolutely delicious. I’ve been there for dinner before, but never for lunch. I’d love to try it out, esp. now that my husband and I work downtown. 🙂

  9. The ‘Bistecca di Manzo’ at Amici sounds incredible. I’ve been there for dinner before, but never for lunch. I’d love to treat my wife (Michelle) to lunch there, esp. now that we both work downtown. 🙂

  10. Both Ground Floor and Hu’s are great restaurants, but I have never been to Amici’s so that is where I would like to go. Good to try a new place especially when it is only 2 blocks from home.

  11. I’ve never been to the Beachcomer. I’d love to try their Maple Salmon.
    A gift card for Hu’s on First would be nice. I’ve never been there and would love to try it.

  12. Definitely would love to try The Chocolate Shop again with my mom. The last time I was there I was a little girl and my mom and I had our tea leaves read.

  13. I am looking forward to trying Amici’s! The Linguine con Zucca sounds delish. But a close second would also be Modern – the menu sounds very interesting and delish!

  14. I don’t work, or live near downtown:( so on my day off I am going to make a point of checking out ‘EAST INDIA COMPANY’ for a carb friendly chicken sizzler and vegetables nothing like ringing in the spring with veggies 🙂

  15. I wish I was closer to the forks at lunch becasue I would go to each place there! So I am going to try out the Pony Corral and Samurai first. 🙂

  16. Too bad I don’t work in downtown, but I’m very interested to try Modern east African tapas restaurant! It will be my destination this weekend!!!

  17. 4 Play Sports Bar

    Would love to try a new place to eat my hubby loves burgers and i love wraps. We are still fairly new to city. So it would be a place to check out.
