There are a million awesome restaurants in Winnipeg! Carlos and Marty's in Osborne. It's a must stop for me when I (rarely) go to the 'Peg.

Guess next time I'm down there I'll have to go see some fish too. :biggrin:

I has been a long time since I left back in '92. I remember that place as Carlos and Murphy's when I was going to University. The Blue Note Cafe was still around and Neil Young would drop by every-so often if he was in town. GOD, I'm old! :)

the guy who runs salt water connection just got back from Bali. His tanks are overflowing with hand picked goodies right now. Well worth a visit.

Whoops, you are right, I'm sure it is Carlos and Murphy's. It's been a long while since I got down that way... but definitely one of my all time favourite restaurants. And you can't be that old, even I remember the Blue Note, though I'm not sure if it's still there (it had changed and wasn't the same as I originally remember it being anyhow).

HA HA HA. I have totally forgot about The Blue Note Cafe...... WOW! Its been a long long time.

I could spend 2 months eating at good restaurants in Winnipeg. The food is awesome. I don't want to spend that much time there tho. I miss the food, but not the climate.

It seems that the government has come down on this store for some illegal practices. Illegal imports and false documents. Here is the link.

Has anyone ever heard what happened over these allegations?

I got into a huge argument on another board with a bunch of people who convicted him in the court of public opinion.

Well the court date was in April and he had a shipment in October so I'm guessing nothing came of it... either that or he paid a fine and that was the end of it. Anyone know?

So, is the consensus still Fish Gallery and Saltwater Connection? I'm in Winnipeg and I'd like to check some stuff out... I guess I'll stop at Birds and Aquariums to see if their big display is still up.
