Our first time at Auberge du Pommier, the original jewel in the Oliver & Bonacini crown.

We began with Bisque de Potiron & Crustaces — a stellar lobster butternut squash bisque for me

and Dormeur du Pacifique — Dungeness crab and warm sunchoke custard, pine nut butter, lemon & truffle bouillon, and crab toast for my husband.

Next were our mains, Morue — sauteed Atlantic cod, clam and mussel, savoy cabbage, baby vegetables, sauce vermouth for me

and Porc — Cumbrae Farms pork chop, braised peanuts, bacon-stewed kale, garnet yam, raddichio marmalade, and jus de porc for my husband.

To finish we had the Gateau Pouding au Caramel — sticky toffee pudding, butterscotch sauce, and vanilla ice cream — it was described as dessert for two, although there was probably enough for four.  Whenever I see sticky toffee pudding on the menu I have to order it, and this one was the real deal, the best I’ve had outside of England.

When the bill came we were treated to some amazing macarons and blood orange candies. The dark macaron was chocolate made to look like a “lump of coal” and was the other macaron was a red and green “candy cane” that was peppermint flavored. I am not a big macaron fan but these were great! very light and delicate. And we enjoyed the blood orange candies.

This was an amazing meal, and I can see why Auberge du Pommier is consistently listed as one of Toronto’s best fine dining restaurants.
