Contractors get hungry… and Cabbagetown Restaurants are Ready to serve

Weenen-HOP-photo---from-Kathy-FlaxmanContributed by Kathy Flaxman. After a morning of running from job to job, making sure materials are on site, that measurements are correct and every carpenter has instructions, Joe Rozman of Weenen General Contracting Limited is hungry! Fortunately for Joe and his team, Cabbagetown, along with its reputation for wonderful homes and architecture, is known for terrific places to dine. “We work hard in the contracting business,” he says. “Great meals keep us going.  There are so many wonderful places. Often, we go to The Irv, a place near our office where the fish and chips are amazing.”

 
Another favourite of Weenen General Contracting is the House on Parliament with fare that Joe calls ‘impeccable’.  “It’s a pub and the atmosphere is lively,” he says.   Tania Waldock of House on Parliament points out the daily specials are chosen based on what produce, meat and fish are the best available: maybe bouillabaisse when it’s freezing out. She also notes that Weenen General is their ‘go to’ company to for any of the multiple jobs that have to be done around the premises.  “This building dates to the 1880’s” she says.  “Things constantly need replacing. Weenen General is there for us and I can’t say enough good things about them.”
