Restaurant of the Month: Yours Truly

Posted on

Most of the restaurants on my “Must Try” list are recommendations through colleagues, friends and word of mouth.  To my surprise (although it probably shouldn’t be), this month’s restaurant has been touted as one of the top restaurants in Toronto by Toronto Life magazine.  Yours Truly is located in that hip and happening neighborhood of Ossington/Dundas – just a few blocks away from my January and February features: Black Hoof and Campagnolo.  The menu is simple, small snacks and a meat and vegetarian 4-course tasting menu.  On a busy saturday night dinner, I chose the meat tasting menu – but the devilled eggs on the small plates menu was ever so tempting!  The atmosphere was casual and hip with constant chatter.  But the food….oh, the food was fabulous!  Full of flavour combinations that are out of the ordinary and unexpected.  The chef brought us 3 amuse bouches before our 4-course feast began.  My favourite course – the duck!

Here is the course by course dinner – all photos courtesy of me :)

Cocktails to start the night: a Concord sour and Shake that pare.
