Lately I've been hearing so much about the "fancy" Urban Eatery food court in the lower level on the Dundas St side of the Eaton Centre. Over the holidays, we finally had a chance to check it out for ourselves.
You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear" comes to mind.
One point of note is the Urban Eatery's stance on environment preservation with the use of non-disposable cutlery and serving containers. My soup and salad were served in reusable plastic bowls and came with stainless steel cutlery. After eating your meal, you are to bring your dishes to a deposit area where cafeteria staff await to empty out your food remnants and send the bowls, dishes, knives, forks and spoons off for cleaning. We didn't order a drink so I'm not sure if your water or pop or coffee would come in reusable cups as well. While this seems like a noble endeavour, it's hard to imagine this being cost effective. So let's see if it lasts or if will just be a fleeting gimmick for this "upscale food court".
