No, no probs.

Rice is just one of those things that's, well, hard to mess-up.

False...If you don't make rice properly , or you reheat in microwave it goes way wrong very fast , you obviously never worked in a real kitchen..

Their poutine doesn't belong anywhere near the province of Quebec. It's really insulting.

Ironically it would keep the name "Boston Pizza" even at the Bell but in Boston of all places it has a different name apparently

It's pretty sad when you can throw together a better poutine at home without even trying than a lot of places.

Thanks for the 101...

I'll give Cage an extra star now because they know how to make rice.

I shall never take rice for granted.... in fact, I think I owe rice an apology. I'll go a chinese Buffet next week and eat only rice and nothing else, as a token for it's appreciation, and the chefs who prepare it.

neoflury, I would laugh my ass off if they replace the Cage with Boston Pizza without changing the name...

They closed up because they know they won't be able to give out so many free chicken wings with all the goals the Habs will score this season!

You need to allow me soya sauce though... It's got to go down somehow.

Either they're renovating or La Cage aux sports pulled out because the Canadiens were charging them too much for rent. In that case I'm sure the Canadiens will operate a sports bar for themselves in there. The place was packed all the time and way overpriced, there's definitely a way to make money with it.

If true, perhaps the Habs organization want to put there their own restaurant and why not start a new ''official" line of sports bars that could be nice marketing.

Who cares about food, you don't go there for la bonne franquette, order wings and beers and you're set.

The only good thing about Cage Aux Sports is the unlimited popcorn. That's all.

Nice! What's with Boston Pizza, anyway? That's like Kansas City Seafood or Los Angeles BBQ.

I have to tell you that I have real fond memories of the Cage in the West Island circa 1992-1993. Their food back them was prepared fresh (fresh cut fries), they had kickass blue cheese sauce, their onion bricks were amazing. Their Cage Burger was huge and game with all the fixins. They had that Bar trivia game where you competed with bars from all over North America. Wait staff was great, crowds were lively.

I went to the one in Chateauguy a few years back to watch a playoff game. Pity how far they've fallen in EVERY aspect of their restaurant. Always happens though when you want to become a brand.
