Season 1 - Episode 7
Uncle Betty's Diner, The Armview Diner, Pagliacci's
Host John Catucci dishes up non-traditional breakfast treats at a new Toronto, ON favourite, Uncle Betty’s Diner, where the eggs benny is served on freshly made, in-house doughnuts. Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it! Over in Halifax, NS, The Armview Diner remains an institution since the 50s. Their fish comes strait from the shore through their door, and John follows in order to get cooking and serve updated classics to a new generation of Haligonian hipsters. From fish fries, to seafood burgers and salads, Haddock is the catch of the day. In Victoria B.C, Brooklyn-born brothers, Howie and David Siegel, owners of Pagliacci’s, show John some New York City attitude. Their restaurant’s claim to fame? Homemade, creamy, dreamy and definitely calorie enhancing New York-style cheesecake.
