Hi everyone, I'm officially hijacking Kirby's blog for a quick guest post! Those of you that follow her posts regularly (and if you aren't, why not!) might know me as "FW", but that is neither fun nor easy to remember, so I will introduce myself here as Fon.
A couple of nights ago, following a long discussion of where to go for dinner, I found myself in Gastown with the idea that the area is a pretty fail-safe bet for reliable food and creative drinks. We headed toward The Diamond as we had heard good things about their cocktail menu.
|Colin's Lawn: Sake, Lillet, Lemon, Mint, Ginger, Sparkling Wine|
|New Toronto: Bourbon, Italian Vermouth, Fernet Branca, Honey, Lemon Twist|
|Yucca fries with Chipotle aioli|
|4 Cheese dip, White bean and artichoke hearts|
|Soft tacos with Ancho spiced chicken|
One last note - rumour has it that a secret room lies behind the brick walls at The Diamond. If you've been lucky enough to see it, I'd love to hear about its mysteries - perhaps the dining experience hidden there is the true diamond in the rough!
