Music Musts: Music and munchies – By Jonathan Duiguid

Everybody enjoys food – and almost everybody enjoys music. I know I do. All you have to do is look at me and you’ll know it; from my big size to my love of belting out songs randomly.
This week is National Restaurant Week, and so I thought I’d do something a little different for this week’s column.
Instead of rambling on about my thoughts or musical discoveries and giving you a few gigs to check out over the weekend, I figured that for a change I would list five of my favourite restaurants, which all serve great chow, and have live music incorporated.
Please note: while there are many venues that serve up sound and food, I’m just listing my favourites.
And my challenge to you this week? Visit them…and let me know what you think.
