I'm not sure if the other locations in the city were offering the same promotion, but Fresh on Bloor did and they were not gearing up for an April Fools joke. Not only was the restaurant open (it was the Easter weekend, after all), but they were also offering deep discounts for their customers between 6-9 pm:
30% OFF from 6-7 pm
40% OFF from 7-8 pm
50% OFF from 8-9 pm
I stopped by around 8pm to get some grab before heading down the street to a movie screening. As was to be expected, the place was packed, with a line down the hall and spilling out the front door. However, this was not an issue, as the offer applied both to dine-in and take-out! How many restaurants do that?! Usually you don't get the good stuff unless you still and often you need to purchase alcohol/certain amount of food to get the discount. Not in this case! Everything except liquor was on special and other than waiting in line for a bit to pick up your food, there was absolutely zero hassle to get it. Definitely worth the trip.
WHAT: Fresh (restaurant) customer appreciate night
WHERE: Fresh on Bloor (at Spadina)
WHEN: March 31, 6-9 pm
INSIDER TIPS: The place was to crowded for a relaxed dining experience. I highly recommend getting take-out. In fact, you can call ahead to place your order. Then all you have to do is show up, pay up, and walk out the door with your delicious (and half-priced!) goodies.
