Thanks, Canada

The friendly folks north of the border have sent a fine restaurant our way


We can give Canada credit for a few choice things. 

Rachel McAdams comes to mind. They also invented poutine, those glorious french fries covered in cheese curds and gravy. And we'll give Canada hockey, after they skated right by us at yet another Olympics.

But now most importantly, they've given us Earls
, one of the largest restaurant chains around that you probably haven't heard of. 

The Canadian restaurant company is just now getting its footing in the States, including an outpost expected to open March 12 in the
Dadeland Mall's new terrace wing. Yup, the old mall's gone all fancy

At Earls, it's world cuisine reinvented in Canada, like cobia ceviche and sticky barbecue pork buns. And the Bronx burger comes with a couple giant onion rings that'll challenge your jaw's opening abilities.

Earls in Kendall is all warm leathers and white marble, with communal tables just begging for a big party to down drinks. The place is huge, too 300 spots inside and another hundred on the wrap-around patio, which just happens to be perfect this time of year. 

Sure, maybe we'd be better off if
Justin Bieber went back north

But Earls is one Canadian export we can welcome.
