Prince and County General-Welcome 2 Canada

Chef Victor Barry and Carlo the owner of County General on Queen West in Toronto have another restaurant in the city called Splendido and everyone tells me you should try it. I know it is good but for me nothing is comparable to taking my Ferrari from Monte Carlo to Portofino at breakneck speed flicking past others on the motorway and arrving at Hotel Splendido. Abolutly nothing else could compare for me. However, County General is one of my favorites, and I have taken several people there and all have liked it. To begin with Carlo the owner and Victor the Chef are great, with Carlo’s eye for detail and Victor’s for food, and the team of Bobby, Caitlin, Spencer and Megan at the bar it’s like being at home with good food,drinks with friends. County General is also near the design team of Magpie who recently designed wardrobe for Prince for his Welcome 2 Canada Tour, as well for Kevin of Barenaked Ladies who also frequents the County General.
When Prince began his tour in Toronto it had been a long day for me all on cuppaccino’s standing chatting with everyone at the venue to find out what was going on, the security team told me they were pulling fifteen hour shifts and Sammy Wong was running around looking after last minute details. Canadian fashion photographer Michael Patrick came to the show with me and after it was over it was time to chill and have some good food and County General was the destination. It was without a doubt the best choice, good food, always taste’s better when you are with good friends and County General has all the right vibe, it’s kinda like Prince it’s got the funk happening. It’s just happening. Back in Toronto still reeling from the energy of the show in good old party town capital of Canada Montreal, where would I go in Toronto? straight to County General, and this was a good call. The food as always is outstanding, as is the music the people and those you meet sitting at the bar. Last night I know I found a hidden talent a future actor. Look-out Jackie Chan. Before Prince, between Prince and after Prince concerts it’s the County General. The adventure of discovery never stops at My Name is Khan.
