This A.M. it's time to celebrate! TIFF is here and the stars are out! More importantly I recently celebrated a milestone and accomplishment of my best friend/soul mate (soon to be movie star) over celestial cocktails and first class food.
The Ace, located at 231 Roncesvalles in a.k.a. Roncy Village, a dimly candlelit, romantic diner/bar styled restaurant has absolutely won me over. I'm not sure if it was the cherry blossom chinoiserie papered wall, or the vintage china dishes that reminded me yet again of my grandmother.
Oh, did I mention cocktails? Yes... and they serve classy, sophisticated, and mature cocktails.
The "Ace Manhattan", "Ace Fizz", "Vesper","Canadian Sour"~ just to name a few of their offerings, however, I finished the night with an "After Ace".
|The "After Ace"|
Earl Grey & Burnt Lemon Simple Syrup
Served on the Rocks with a drizzle of Campari & a Lemon Zest
To start we shared risotto balls stuffed with Swiss Gruyere Cheese and served with a homemade tomato sauce and steamed greens.
|To follow we shared the most scrumptious grilled octopus. It was served with potatoes, fennel, Arugula, black olives and lightly smoked yoghurt.|
