Dinner with a view? We’ll take it. The Watermark Restaurant, located in the Radisson Admiral Harbourfront, gives the most stunning view of Lake Ontario anywhere in the city. With its sleek modern décor, superior service and Canadian-inspired cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients, you’ll find everything you need for after-work drinks, a romantic dinner, a business meeting or a hang with friends.
Here’s what the menu offers:
Options range from the virtuous (overnight antioxidant oats with local maple syrup, shaved dark chocolate, nuts and berries) to the decadent (lemon meringue toast, cinnamon roll pancakes with cream cheese icing, or a fully loaded poutine skillet with black oyster mushrooms and cheese curds). You’ll find all the classics here too – BLT, steak and eggs benny, pea meal bacon sandwich and more. The Watermark’s focus on local starts with breakfast – all eggs are supplied from 100km Foods and Homestead Farms. They’re free run too!
There’s nothing like French onion soup on a cold day – and the Watermark version is made extra satisfying with a splash of stout and it’ topped with garlic crostini and herbs. Other tantalizing starters include beer battered buffalo cauliflower, crab cakes, beet and goat’s cheese salad and more. Classic mains like braised beef short ribs, fish and chips and a lasagna skillet are all prepared with care and fresh, seasonal ingredients. Or you can opt for a sandwich – the Watermark burger is topped with a beer battered onion ring and aged cheddar, or you can skip the meat and go for the sweet potato, quinoa and black bean burger (it’s tasty on its own, but they throw on a smashed avocado, smoky mustard and vegan mayo for extra deliciousness).
If you need to unwind at the end of the day, we have the answer – local breweries like Railway City Brewing Co., Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery (try the Antigravity Lager), Eastbound Brewing Co. and Saulter Street are all represented at the Watermark taps. Or you can opt for a glass of VQA wine by Jackson Triggs or Inniskillin. There’s a good variety of international wines as well.
The Radisson is one of the few Toronto hotels located directly at the shore of Lake Ontario, making it easy to take advantage of the waterfront’s recreation facilities. Be sure to check the Harbourfront Centre’s What’s On Schedule to find out about events this month – free skating, a concert series and a public art installation are among them. And check out Trillium Park and Ontario Place for outdoor activities, events and entertainment, including the Winter Light Exhibition on this month, with community bonfires and paint classes offered on the weekends. Get to know this vibrant, pedestrian-friendly section of the city – you’ll meet joggers, music fans, art lovers and everyone in between.
With fine Canadian dining, a beautiful view and unbeatable location, the Watermark hits the mark.
