girl meets steak
I have an intense and passionate relationship with steak. I love it.
What's a girl to do then when her time is up and she hasn't tried all the steakhouses. Simple, she turns to her friends to help her narrow down the field.
Sidebar: Of the ones I have tried, I loved House of Chan. I like Ruth's Chris and I enjoy mainstream joints like the Keg and Canyon Creek. I'm not a fan of Morton's or Le Biftheque.
My shortlist was Jacobs, Ruby Watch Co, Barberians and Harbour Sixty. I surveyed 100 Facebook friends and Harbour Sixty won the majority by 1 vote, Barberians was second and Jacobs was third. I nixed the latter since most people raved about the table caesar. Greens are secondary to me.
Minnie and I headed to Harbour Sixty on my Final Friday (in Toronto), and it couldn't have been a more perfect finale. I'd go back for an encore if I could.
It was one of the best meals I've had - starting with the impeccable service. Comfortable, not stiff; polite, not awkward; attentive, not over-bearing; and professional, not pretentious.
It was classic steakhouse sides and perfectly made-to-order steak in a classy but relaxed venue.
I feel the tears brewing as I reminisce. I'll take a moment while you reflect on this:
|Golden Beet Salad $15|
|Seared Ahi Tuna $20|
A little something sweet to cap off the gluttony:
And finally, coffee. The beauty of this layout captures everything I loved about the meal. It's always about the details. It's not just a cappuccino, it's presentation.
A beautiful goodbye to the big, big city.
