When you're walking down the street in front of it, it doesn't look like much but the fine linens are your first clue. I love the old stone building and found it humourous that it's attached to a KEG steakhouse! Clearly they have survived here for a reason, and, in my opinion, if you want to know what it's like to eat the best traditional Cdn food in the city then EAT HERE!! The service is a close second to being their best feature. We were 2 couples. Thanks to a surprising tip from a friend, we started with Mojito cocktails which were brilliant!
The ladies each started with a mesclun salad that, by comparison after trying our smoked salmon appetizer, was a little lacking in substance but the ingredients were clearly top notch.
Then came the mains. We had their specialty - steak - cooked to perfection x4!
To top things off: 2 vanilla flavoured crème brûlées + 2 chocolate mousse cakes. After 4-way sampling/judging, no decision could be reached on which was better so we called it a draw for first place! (And that's something for a "chocoholic" like me to concede!) Which one you will prefer will most likely depend on how you satisfy your cravings for decadence - light or rich respectively.
We had this meal in July 11 (during our JFL trip) and we still talk about it frequently. What a treat!!
