Ruby Watch Co., by m

Standard

I was fortunate enough to have the pleasure of accompanying my parents to Ruby Watch Co. last week, the restaurant owned and operated by Food Network chef Lynn Crawford. We started off the night with AMAZING cocktails (mom had something delicious that had carrot and ginger in it, I had a caesar-style cocktail with horseradish vodka). Next, came the awesome food:

Raw Sharon Farm Mushroom and Pickled Onion Salad

I was obsessssed with the pickled onions and the huuuge chunks of pancetta.

Mom’s not a huge fan of fennel, so needless to say I hadn’t tried it before. She was right on that one; nothing to write home about.  But the celery root with gruyere cheese was TO DIE FOR.

After this course, we had Niagara Gold cheese, by Upper Canada Cheese Company.  It went really well (as did the whole meal) with the Rosehall Run Pinot Noir (2009) that we drank!

Vanilla Citrus Pot De Creme

I really could’ve stopped after the cheese, but then dessert came! J would have loved this one (kind of like a creme brulee, but without the crispy top!). All in all, the dinner was awesome, and the atmosphere was just as sweet! I’ll go back ANY time, mom!

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
