"winning a best of the berkshire's award "

wow, such an ignorant comment. The premise that those awards are at all meaningful suggest that you are truly a dullard.

So of all the tens (hundreds?) of letters The Eagle received concerning Spice, the one they naturally print sounds like a press release.
Doesn't this belong on the calendar page?

The food was mediocre at best, service was terrible. Go to John Andrews or Pearls if you want fine dining

99 has the best prime ribs...but they stopped serving them 7 nights a week last fall. They were supposed to start in March but since they had another special running, they're keeping prime ribs Thurs - Sun. I found this out AFTER I was told the schedule was back to 7 nights a week, and after I was seated for dinner with the kids. So tonight, I went to the Dakota. They serve prime rib (and lobster) 7 nights a week!!

The 99? Trash. Come on people, these chain restaurants are all horrible! There can be chains that are decent (Cheesecake Factory, Grand Lux), but come on, The 99? No way, not good.

well when you invite your friends over who just happen to be on the board of trustees for various award councils it tends to get that way. especially when you're tossing money away on it and not paying your bills. as for the awards, what are they? best new business in the berkshires; most expensive business in the berkshires and lets not forget "most snobbiest of the berkshires"

give me a break... if it was as vital as everyone was saying it'd have won more than just 1 local award, if that. face it, it was crappy food at really crappy prices; and i doubt burger is going to last as well.

i chowed at 99 before,they got great food at a decent price,i think its even better than red lobster.i tried lobster after dipping it in margin and it sure does hammer your stomach the following morning.i can still remember when abdows used to be at where 99 is,i used to work at abdows during jan 1988 into early july of 1988.then a few days later after the 4th of july 1988 i got a new job offer at a bakery and i took it.but abdows was a great place to work at,i worked the day shift,and my dinner food was free and i could cook anything i wanted and it was delicious

I moved here in the summer of 1988 and before that, just came up to visit family from where I was raised in Boston. I vaguely remember Abdows (I didn't remember that was the location until you said that, Charles) and my Grandma used to take me there. I remember stuffing myself full, though I was just a kid LOL They took me to Bonanza a lot, too. And what was the restaurant that was where "Over the Rainbow" is now (First St. bridge)? I remember going there to eat italian with my Grandma when was much younger, maybe 7 or so, which would've been about 1983...but I can't for the life of me remember what the name of the restaurant then was. Anyone?

hosting parties of 200 plus. drop the kids off for a night at Spice. Mayor approved, taxpayer-subsidized teen beer blast eatery. Also hosting special events into the wee hours of the morning. and don't worry, if your kid can't handle their liquor, fire personnel are close by to administer emergency care, stabilize and transport to hospital any underage vomiting drunks.

Dump the drunks and fools off half way up Spadina Parkway. The Mayor will welcome them all and serve Cheetos and Puerto Rican Rum. Hayhoo.
