And little did I know that there are 10 locations in the city alone, not to mention Dawson Creek, Victoria and ... Regina.
So what did I think of Browns Social House beyond the red chandelier?
Once I got over how unsuccessfully their servers were trying to pretend they are JOEY's, I started wondering about the obsession of the place with blackened chicken.
I should have tried a blackened chicken dish to make this article more interesting - what was I thinking?
Instead I ordered the Tahitian Tuna Healthy Social Bowl.
Average to good I'd say, ingredients fresh and salad nicely dressed.
Not sure if the tuna cut into hearts was a prelude to Valentine's day, but a cute touch.
The almond rice? OK.
Will I go again you ask? Not unless I have to.
