Cowbell for dinner

    Sirs, Madames,

    The Significant Other, aka The Best Friend of FotF, is having her book launch tonight. Her book is (in Canada) Carnivore Chic: From Pasture to Plate, the Search for the Perfect Meat.

    I can't invite anybody--Penguin is looking after the invitations. But the site of the launch got me thinking. The launch is in a new-age steakhouse called Cowbell.

    I'm just wondering which poster's name would make this least mouth-watering name for a restaurant.

    YD&OHS, etc

    Best of luck to The Significant Other, Mr. Friend O', but this joint can't compare to the Paddock.

    Cowbell is a bad name for a steakhouse. Hits you between the eyes that you're dining on the family cow.

    Do they have photos of the slaughterhouse on the walls?

    "Boots" would be a great name for a steakhouse.

    One problem, the front door is the back door.

    Mr. F

    Congrats to SB on her new book. Saw the excerpt in The Globe.

    HC & I were just talking about Cowbell the other day--it's out in our neck of the woods. TO Life had a review/profile.

    Actually, that IS the point of the restaurant.They want you to know where the animal that you're eating came from. Hence, the name of the book "Carnivore Chic" .


    It all started innocently enough, with dinner at Cowbell, the unassuming restaurant in Parkdale. The waiter had given us a rundown of the chalkboard menu, which famously lists farmers along with their produce. He told us how the Lake Erie perch had been caught. Where the chicken had been raised. What the steak had once eaten. “Do you want to tell us his name, too?” joked my dinner companion. “George,” deadpanned the waiter, without skipping a beat.

    To each his own. I prefer my victims to be anonymous.

    I've already put my name on the waiting list for George's kidney and liver. :)
