Hands down, one of my favourite meals in Toronto this year.
Two doors east of The Gladstone, the unassuming facade conceals this beautifully renovated brownstone.

Food:
Small and concise menu (3 app, 3 main, 3 dessert) - same goes for the wine list. We had a delicious bottle of dry Greek Muscat for under $50.
Rye bread with shallots and whipped butter - Delicious start.
White fish - tangy horseradish and dill cream cheese (?). Perfect balance of tart and rich.
Confit Chicken - Celery root and fried rye bread crumbs. Chicken packed with flavour. Execution of the celery roots was one of best I've tasted.
Medley of Wild Mushroom - with egg and "salty Granola" (assorted toasted nuts).
Definitely the winner of the night. Complex flavour profile, subtle sweetness from the cabbage and mushroom, and every bite was balanced with the nutty richness from the "granola". Clean. Beautiful.

Food plates range from $15-30.
PS. The "appetizer" and "main" are not indicative of their portion size. Two appetizers and one main were enough for the two of us. The most filling dish was actually the Confit appetizer.

Auxiliaries:
God is in the details. From the delicate rice paper menu, to the hand-made wool bread basket, to the aptly chosen utensils - everything felt precious and well-thought-out. The basement toilet also had some British nostalgic elements.

They were busy on a Tuesday night. We will be back for more.
