Went to the recently opened St. James Gate Pub and Restaurant mid afternoon today (formerly Silk Thai, and Millers Country Fare before that). Went with the family - DH and 2 kids. We were expecting "basic pub food", but a nice surprise awaited us! What a delightful addition to the Islington Village neighbourhood! One child had chicken fingers and fries - the basic, "off the children's menu" type. Other child had mac and cheese, and it was AMAZING. Had smoked duck pieces in it, creamy and flavourful cheese. Mom and Dad couldn't resist sneaking our forks in for a few tastes. DH and I each had a burger with brie, carmelized onions and mushrooms - on Ace bakery buns with what appeared to be homemade patties, generously portioned at about 1/2 lb each, and cooked perfectly for us - moist, not dry! I got a very yummy spinach salad for my side (it also came with coleslaw and perfect dill pickle - I'm picky about my dills), and DH got fries for his side. The kids then were surprised with ice cream and oreos, and grownups shared what I think is the best dessert I've had anywhere in a while...the restaurant's homemade peanut butter pie. Service was wonderful - really hope this neighbourhood restaurant succeeds!
