The Hart House – Father’s Day Brunch
During the last Dine Out, we had a pretty great time at the Hart House so we decided to come back here for Father’s Day Brunch. As it turns out, there was also a wedding going on here… it was a little awkward walking through the wedding party but we got over that pretty quickly.
The Mimosa was quite strong – they don’t skimp on the champagne here.
They brought us out some complimentary flaky croissants and slices of freshly baked baguette along with blackberry jam and butter before our meal arrived.
We started out with 1/2 dozen freshly shucked oysters with a great raspberry mignonette – I really liked the crunchy texture from the chopped up shallots.
For Father’s Day, they were serving up a two course express brunch menu.
The Carrot and Ginger Soup came recommended by our waiter and had very subtle and muted flavours (a little too muted for my liking).
The Chef’s Special Frittata with braised short ribs and cheese sounded really good and came beautifully presented.
I picked the Knuckle Sandwich on soft herb bun – this contained lobster knuckles and baby shrimp on an apple brioche bun. While this tasted pretty good, I think it would have been even better if it was served on a more crusty roll (like a lobster roll).
We ended our meal with a refreshing and tart dessert of Raspberry Sorbet.
Service was quite professional. In the future though, I think I would stick with the spring leek and potato soup over the carrot and ginger.
