Winterlicious again! I went to Granite Brewery (245 Eglinton Avenue East) with a friend for a 2:30pm Saturday lunch. This place has a wall full of books and is host to an older, quieter crowd during lunch time. The restaurant is located on Eglinton/Mt. Pleasant Road, reachable by streetcar or even walking distance from the Eglinton subway station. You can search for their Winterlicious menu here ($15 for lunch; $25 for dinner).
with raspberry vinaigrette
This is a nice light appetizer, and the raspberry vinaigrette is really refreshing.
ARCTIC CHAR FILET
topped with avocado relish
and served with chickpea salad and basmati rice
Really enjoyed this dish! The fish was well made and I’m a sucker for anything avocado.
This was so goooood. It looked like such a tiny portion at first, but it’s very dense and rich. I still could have had more though, haha.
This was a nice place for lunch and a great location. The Winterlicious menu is great value! It wasn’t very busy and the dishes came very quickly. Being a brewery, I’m sure it would have been a much more impressive experience in the evening and with a few beers.
