Without restaurants, waiters would purposelessly wander parks all day, folding swans out of actual swans. Keep their hands occupied with this Groupon.
$10 for $20 Worth of Contemporary Grill Cuisine and Drinks
The menu pays homage to British pubs and American grills with entrees of beer-battered fish 'n' chips ($13), an 8-ounce salmon fillet roasted on a cedar plank ($19), and chicken kebabs marinated and grilled with bell peppers ($16).
The stained-glass windows inside PJ Billington's sunroom cast vibrant orange and yellow shapes across table-scapes awash in blue from a skylight overhead. Their complexity stands in contrast to the food, whose crisp simplicity is a refreshing take on pub and grill staples. A review in the Telegram speaks to this unpretentious elegance, praising dishes from the "tastiest, freshest bruschetta in the city" to the pea soup and the surf 'n' turf—a mix of strip loin, sautéed shrimp, and bacon-wrapped scallops.
The menu cherishes straightforward presentation with a focus on flavour. The flatbread pizzas aren't overloaded with toppings, chefs cut the Angus steaks in-house before expertly flame-broiling them, and the 8-ounce salmon fillets derive their rich taste simply from roasting on a cedar plank. From its nook inside the Ramada St. John's, the venue also serves breakfast until 11 a.m. on weekdays and 3 p.m. on weekends, giving late risers a chance to enjoy a Meat Lovers omelette or load the cannons of their blanket fort with sausage.
