The T.Dot Scene: Glow Fresh Grill & Wine Bar

The hip and trendy Shops on Don Mills, which is an outdoor mall is located just 5 minutes away from where I live. I dine there often, going to restaurants like Joey's and Linda's (and now waiting anxiously for Canada's first PF Changs!). I had never previously dined at Glow Fresh Grill & Wine Bar. I often get mixed reviews from friends about its menu and service. Most of the items don't use a lot of cream or butter and with many gluten free and carb-less options (hamburgers without buns), we quickly realized this was a 'health fad' restaurant. We didn't mind that part though. We ordered the Lobster mac and cheese (without cream!) it wasn't bad at all. but it's apparent that it isn't your regular mac and cheese. We weren't that hungry so we shared that and decided we would order their mini desserts, that come in shot glasses later on. We were also surprised with a Hummus trio for the table (instead of bread like most restaurants) which I really enjoyed (perhaps more then my mac and cheese) and the mini desserts were amazing.  Overall, our server was super nice, but slow. Service in general was. This probably won't be my 'go-to' at the Shops on Don Mills, considering all the other options there, but it's nice atmosphere and great place for drinks!
