Beach-dwelling birds possess a stylish swagger and a more healthful, sun-kissed glow than office-dwelling and opera-going sparrows. Today's Groupon allows you to soak up the avian swagger while enjoying a hearty supper: for $20, you get $45 worth of eclectic fare at Beach Bird Restaurant. This deal is only valid for dine-in at dinner or weekend brunch.
Beach Bird serves up a large and varied menu of fresh fare made in-house daily. Start a weekend off with a hearty bacon and cheddar frittata ($9), or savour spoonfuls of the sorbet waffle, a pillowy delight with a scoop of raspberry-mango sorbet in the company of a caramel-banana sauce ($9). The multi-page dinner menu offers small and meal-sized salads ($7–$14), warm and filling sandwiches ($9+), hand-built burgers ($9+), pizza ($11+), pasta ($12+), rice and noodle dishes ($12+), bacon-scented puppy kisses (market price), succulent seafare ($10+), and traditional carnivorous entrees ($15+). The tender veal marsala with roasted potatoes and vegetables ($16) could enhance the senses enough to allow diners to taste through walls, an especially useful skill when partitioned off from Beach Bird's 12 oz. grilled strip-loin steak with cognac-peppercorn demi-glaze ($21).
The Beaches Park–area eatery boasts a bright and open décor, with blond-wood flooring, brunette-wood tables, and rich leather banquettes that line the walls of the dining room. A colourful mural of a tropical-beach scene decorates one wall and will prove helpfully distracting to a petulant pack of children eagerly anticipating their kids-sized meal ($7). Call ahead for reservations.
Beach Bird Restaurant
Beach Bird Restaurant seamlessly blends influences from Canada, America, Italy, and Southeast Asia into an elegant, eclectic dining experience. The café welcomes visitors with the scents of sizzling Madras curries, penne noodles swimming in rich vodka sauce, and herb-crusted Atlantic salmon, charming them with a cozy atmosphere and a location an artisanal pizza's throw from the lakefront. Guests begin feasts with bites of Thai spring rolls or fresh green mango salad before digging into hearty four-cheese burgers, tandoori butter chicken, or pizzas crowned with Cajun-spiced chicken.
Artfully arranged meals of colorful vegetables and marinated meats complement a vibrant, wall-sized mural of a tropical beach, and furnishings of wine-dark varnished woods and tile floors make for classy, yet casual surroundings.
