After our hopes were dashed last July with the surprise cancellation of a Seinfeld-themed bar opening in Toronto—that had attracted over 35, 000 eager fans on Facebook—we were left to console ourselves with a few swigs of Peach Schnapps and a black and white cookie, or two.
BUT, it looks like our fair city will be getting a dose of Jerry, Elaine, Kramer and George after all in the form of a weekend-long pop-up at Bloorcourt coffeeshop Field Trip Cafe, running from August 18-20. While we wait for the next 48 hours to pass before we can check out the offerings for ourselves, here’s our dream menu of Seinfeld-inspired dishes.
“The Jake Jarmel”
A box of Jujyfruits and a popcorn
Snickers bar, served with a knife and fork
A box of Junior Mints
A Sit-Down lunch
Chicken salad on rye (untoasted) with a side of potato salad + a cup of tea
“I Feel Full”
A large plate of risotto
“You Are Hot Tonight!”
Pastrami sandwich on rye with spicy mustard + pickles
Do or Die Desserts
“It was on top!”
“With extra napkins”
Ice cream sundae
“Try the pie”
“Just the tip”
Pudding skin singles
