Designer Diner

November 4, 2011

We used to watch Grease and long for a real ’50s-style diner,
complete with belly-busting burgers, cozy booths (for making out with
Danny Zuko) and a danceable Jukebox soundtrack.

We found an upscale version at Deville
, where an easily downloadable app puts you in charge of the
virtual Jukebox. We loved the gleaming black and hot pink décor and the
modernized menu of comfort food fare. We shared starters of Philly
Cheesesteak Spring Rolls, filled with short ribs, onions and aged Quebec
Cheddar, Ahi Tuna Tacos, and crunchy deep fried pickles with a maple
Dijon dipping sauce. The double stacked Deville burger on toasted
brioche, topped with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles
and signature sauce, was the polar opposite of fast food, meant to be
savoured slowly (and messily). And with dessert options including a
tangy lemon meringue pie and hot beignets with chocolate bourbon sauce,
we realized that we found the one that we want, as far as diners are
concerned. Jennifer Nachshen
