Rose & Sons TorontoPosted By Alex Chinien Mar 30 2014 · 0 comments · Dining Out
Toronto’s got a thing for elevated comfort food. Rose & Sons is at risk of being missed among the likes of Bestellen and Farmhouse Tavern. Everything about it feels overwhelmingly akin to Montreal’s Nouveau Palais. From the vintage diner style booths to the smart, focused cocktail menu. Walking into Rose & Sons felt right at home for two Montrealers.
We started off with Rhum Dog Nog and Kensington Beer and got cozy with the Brothers Juniper Corn Bread Griddle, Chili Pepper Sauce, Maple Syrup. This corn bread was on a mission. The maple syrup and chili pepper sauce was sticking with the crunchy edges of the bread and added bold, memorable flavours to the dish.
The chili was chunky and hearty with the roquefort potato anchoring the spicy flavours. The Fried Chicken and Verscht Maple and Mustard Dip, Butter Lettuce Salad was piping hot and damn crispy – the mustard dip was delicious, we asked for seconds. As heavy and filling as all these dishes were – we couldn’t in good conscience say no to Bread pudding with wild blueberries and ~~**bacon**~~.
The pudding was a sponge absorbing all the amazing blueberry bacon flavours and depositing those flavours directly in our mouths. Can’t go wrong with thick cut smoked bacon for dessert. Rose & Sons does comfort RIGHT – we loved the casual atmosphere and appreciated the elevated, bold flavours. Great option for dinner or weekend brunch.
