Jamie Kennedy Restaurant - mini review

peppermint pate | Sep 28, 2005 01:16 PM

Had a lovely dinner at JK's new restaurant the other evening. The food was superb. Highlights included the "Streets of Toronto" trio of appetizers (fennel-infused sausage in a delicious sauce of melted onions, fried pickerel on frites and a pizzette with olive tapenade), the olive-oil poached halibut and the mixed grill (a large skewer with succulent pieces of of beef, lamb, veal sweetbread, lamb's kidney and pork belly served on a bed of broad noodles and more of those gorgeous onions). Freshly-grilled flatbreads were a nice start and the peach shortcake with blueberries and lemon-sour cream sorbet was a lovely finish. Service was friendly and attentive and the wine list, as one would expect (with JKWB next-door), is extensive. The room decor is a bit ho-hum and, because of that, the prices felt a bit high (average appetizer is about $15 and average main is about $30) - with that said, it was easily one of the best meals I've tried this year. Highly recommended.
