Excellent food, great prices. This adorable little Aldershot Village gem fills right up in no time. That oughta tell you something. Offering up French cuisine, the bistro serves market fresh cuisine (and offers a lovely patio come summer). You can go with the chalkboard picks or start with the Fried Cauliflower (lightly breaded and fried, romesco sauce, and garlic aioli) and chicken liver Pate. There’s also Classic Escargot, Pistou Shrimp, and Baked Brie to start, plus mains such as Steak and Frites, Frenched Pork Chops, Lamb Shank, and so much more! But on this day, we were all about the Bistro Burger. it features a ground beef patty with braised beef, garnished with bacon, arugula, roasted garlic aioli, mushrooms, gruyere, and caramelized onions. It arrives on a pretzel bun. One bite in, and that’s a wrap. We’re in straight burger heaven. Finally, dinner isn’t complete without dessert. There’s an array of cheesecake, plus pie and of course, Creme Brulee!
Essentially everything on the menu at the Gingerman is fantastic, including their poutine. The hand-cut Yukon gold fries are served with Montreal cheese curds and peppercorn beef gravy. And you can add a variety of meat, including jerked pulled beef, Cajun shaved chicken, maple pulled pork, or Montreal smoked meat. (Hopefully the cranky old guy who runs my gym doesn’t read this … or it will probably be death by burpee). Chase your meal with a glass of their hand-picked wine selection if you fancy vino, or be cool like me and order a whisky sour. The Kerr Village gem offers a great atmosphere with tons of wood and natural light, and is also known for its blue goose quesadilla, lettuce wraps, and salads.
If you’re trying to impress and/or make amends with someone significant in your life, then this elegant Main St. resto is the perfect location. The sounds of Frank Sinatra fill the elegant, open-concept space, where it’s warm and inviting, with tons of natural light. Incredible offerings are on the menu (I love, love, love their Neapolitan pizza); never have I seen a restaurant where all staff are smiling and happy (for realsies). Service is spectacular! No wonder diners have been flocking here since 2002. If you haven’t been to Pasqualino, be sure to visit and treat yo’self.
It’s all-natural pizza with cute little pepperoni slices. Hand-tossed fresh pizza dough is made daily at Artisan’s New St. shop using premium bakers flour, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, baker’s yeast, 100 per cent natural spring water, and sugar. Don’t get the saucy details twisted: it’s made from real vine ripened-tomatoes, not from concentrate, topped with real Canadian mozzarella cheese. Service is fast and friendly and they clearly take pride in their product. Gourmet and premium toppings include real bacon and steak, asiago cheese, and organic prosciutto. Note: Gluten-free crust, Daiya cheese and soy cheese are offered for vegans and others with dietary restrictions.
The most pleasant surprise on this list was a new-ish restaurant in the heart of downtown Oakville. This cute little spot opened its doors in October 2016 and is an under-the-radar dining experience when it comes to great Sicilian fare. If you’ve never been, start with the fried artichokes (incredible!) and order the steak. Keep in mind, it’s not offered daily since the meat selection is frequently changed up. The resto is casual yet authentic, kid-friendly and - more importantly - offers a solid wine list, plus cocktails and beer. Service is very friendly. You must go. The menu is curated and the offerings are fabulous.
