A freind took me to the Rosewater supper club for dinner last Thursday (Toronto Street, King & Church area). I was not expecting much because it is part of a chain (and we know from the posts below what people think of chains!). But I was pleasently surprised.
We started with an amazing Foie Gras, small but smooth and flavourfull, then moved on to Beef Carpacio and Wild Salmon Tartar. The salmon was great molded into a tower with some savory herbs. I thought the beef Carpacio was almost too thin it fell apart as you tried to pick it up.
For mains we had the 8 oz Sirloin and the (politically incorrect) milk fed veal.. (Almost tried the horse but was not in an adventurous mood!) The steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned. At 8oz it was a perfect size I hate going to the big steak places where everything is so big that you feel bloated half way through dinner. The Veal was very tender but a bit bland for my taste. Both dished came with the same veg some fancy root vegatables, I was hoping for something a bit more summery..
For desert we had a chocolate covered chocolate mousse that was big but too heavy. We only took a few bites and had to leave it.
At the end they brought a little plate with a few chocolate covered strawberries and candied orange peel dipped in chocolate and then sprinkled with gold leaf... very nice...
All in all I was very impressed and will go back again. The place was prety much empty on a thursday night but with food like they serve I am sure the business will pick up soon..
