Table 66. Much larger, airier and more chic decor. They are now a full day dining with Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Tea and Dinner. However, the menus for each are mutually exclusive. Came down for the Brekky/Brunch. The sous-vide eggs benedict was good; came with a portobello mushroom, bread, corn and tomatoes. Quite good, price-compatible, but still lose out to Hediard's egg Benedictine. The mini beef burger was passable as was the Croque Madame. The pizza looks good though. A carafe of bubbly berries was refreshingly cool and apt for brekky. Unfortunately, no desserts for brekky/brunch (see above) and no oysters except for dinner (6-10pm) or unless pre-ordered. Bar snacks starts at 5pm and is at a separate corner. I can accept the house rules, but the lack of all day desserts is disappointing. Freshness of desserts is easily maintained throughout the day; perhaps they need a dedicated dessert chef. There is an entire potential market to tap on with desserts especially since they are now a whole day dining establishment with an idyllic urban setting.
Verdict: Will come back again, cos I really did like Table 66, but the house rules kinda suck and the brekky/brunch is not fabulous.

What a stunning, beautiful film. Michel Hazanavicius has created a magnificent hommage to the silent era that is sure to be nominated for all the major awards come Oscar 2012! Not a surprise, since this movie grabs you from the beginning as you observe the fall of the silent era, as embodied by the wonderful Jean Dujardin, and the rise of the talkies, as emblazoned by gorgeous Berenice Bejo. Dujardin is undoubtedly the star of the show (other than Uggy!), and is so deserving of the accolades thus far; to me, he is now definitely the front runner for Best Actor. Bejo was luminesce and should also be nominated for Best Supporting Actress. The American actors were also great in their roles and were definitely good fit in this silent flick, where either exaggerated characterizations and large movements, or stoic types with strong features, are to be expected. As said, this film will get nominated for a slew of awards, but other than Best Actor, I don't see it getting Big Prize. Hazanavicius is visionary, but let's take a look at the other contestants first shall we? Maybe it will be one of those rare occurrences where Best Picture and Best Director are not from the same movie. Lastly, if only this movie was played with a live orchestra, what an experience it would have had been! The score is, like Uggy, the unsung actor that lifts this picture up to greatness.
