Eating together, like being buried up to your necks in the same cube of cement, keeps families together. Build a solid foundation with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of bistro fare and drinks at The Rosedale Diner.
The culinary team at The Rosedale Diner, a more than 30-year-old establishment, assembles meats, veggies, and fish to craft inventive offerings from a menu that puts modern twists on Bohemian and Israeli cuisine. Diners can exercise their mandibles around sticky Asian-style pork ribs ($24) slathered in a tamarind and sesame hoisin barbecue sauce that adheres to flavour-hungry palates and can reattach popped buttons. Fingers flex around pita bread enclosing grass-fed bison burgers ($16), and chefs sauté market veggies to accompany King Cole duck confit swimming in veal au jus ($24). As meals unfold, patrons sip international wines from Rosedale's extensive drink menu.
A large, pink rose peers down from the storefront's neon sign, leading visitors into a dining space where chandeliers cast soft glows over rich wood furnishings. Patrons can gaze out the window while seated inside an intimate nook or dine on a garden patio and charge up their solar-powered digestive systems.
The Rosedale Diner
The pink neon rose suspended over The Rosedale Diner’s front door first lit up in 1978 and hasn’t shed a petal since. The owners began honing their unique worldly menu by applying modern twists to Bohemian and Israeli cuisine and later incorporating flavours from areas on other continents, such as Asia and Africa.
Inside, chandeliers cast soft glows over the rich, dark wood tables and bar, as well as the wood-and-glass display case full of artifacts from the eatery’s 30-plus years of food service. Patrons can gaze out the window while seated in intimate nooks or dine on the garden patio and charge up their solar-powered digestive systems.
