A wonderful combination of elegance and ambience. This tastefully designed restaurant of Chef Paul Boehmer also named after him “Boehmer” On Ossington is a welcoming delight to one’s senses. Assorted cheese plates with a complimenting wine to Kobe Beef on the perfect side of medium. I was quite pleased with everything. Chef Boehmer is at the top of his game after paying his dues in many well known and respected kitchens throughout the city such as The Spoke Club, Opus and The Rose Water Supper Club. If you’re looking for a place to impress your girl, your clients or your friends, this spacious niche and wonderfully knowledgeable staff will help you close any deal. You can find Boehmer on their website www.boehmer.caFacebook and on Twitter .
A small warm unassuming Irish pub that serves up some of the best Oysters and gourmet in the city. The attentive staff, great food, Irish whiskeys and fun loving abuse is what makes this place unique. Don’t even think of ordering a fancy drink here! The owner (Patrick McMurray) is the Guinness world oyster shucking champion and owner of another successful restaurant called the Starfish Oyster Bed & Grill on Adelaide St. Be sure to introduce yourself as he sometimes share some great stories of his escapades around the world. If you ever wondered what it would be like to listen to Lenard Cohen on a actual record player while having dinner in a “patio yurt”, you really need to check this spot out.
Some of my favourite meals were of course the Oysters, Mushrooms on toast with blue cheese, The Peat smoked organic Irish salmon with sour cream/lemon and pickled onions. The Mac & Cheese, and last but not least the braised lamb shank with champ and roasted vegetables. For desert the sticky toffee pudding is a must.
