Mid-trip Report and Request for More Help - The Grove

John Galt | Mar 19, 2013 08:24 PM

Following up on my request for Must Eats on my one ever trip to Toronto, thanks for the help, and here is today's quick report.

For lunch, I darted out of a meeting and had a tourtiere from Bannock. Not life-changing, but just the type of regional food I was looking for. Couldn't place the spice that seemed so dominant (similar to cloves or allspice.) But, it felt good eating it in the snowstorm on the walk back.

For dinner, I tried to go to Guu, but they told me it would be a wait of 30-45 minutes, even for one person. So, I trodded through the snow, hopped on public transportation, and somehow wound up at The Grove. I will say that the parsley root soup was astonishingly good. Garnishes were snails, bacon, and fried bread. The bartender called it the signature dish, and I can see why. Really memorable.

So, with two more nights in town, I am considering Edulis, Chantecler, OddSeoul, etc. . . Help!
