Hands down, the best
restaurant I've been to thus far. Spearheaded by Lynn Crawford of Restaurant makeovers, it's a foodie's delight.
It's kind of a dictatorship, with only one menu, and no substitutions (aside from vegetarianism and allergies) but oh, what a lovely one.
Here's what we ate (except I had pan seared B.C. Salmon instead of the beef):
PERTH BACON & EGG SALAD
Maple & Honey Mustard Glazed Bacon, Sleger’s Living Greens, Garden Radishes, Sherry Vinaigrette
SWEET & SMOKEY MUSTARD MARINATED FLANK STEAK
WITH MUSHROOM SAUCE
Grilled Broccoli with Lemon Butter, Espelette Spiced Butternut Squash, Roasted Thompson Yukon Gold Potatoes
UPPER CANADA’S NIAGARA GOLD
Carron Farm’s Carrot & Orange Marmalade
RUBY’S PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE
Candied Pumpkin Seeds, Coffee Caramel Sauce
The best part was the broccoli (I know, what??!) and the way the white was perfectly paired with the salad and the fish. The cheese was particularly delectable, I've got to find some Upper Canada's Niagara Gold at the market this weekend.
The staff were incredible, there were wine recommendations for every course, and K even got her menu signed by Lynn Crawford herself. She was in after a long shoot. Apparently, Pitchin' In has been nominated for a Gemini. I would go back there again and again. Absolutely fabulous!
