I have been very lucky to celebrate a birthday or two on the fabulous King West patio Brassaii, imagine how excited I was to discover they have brought on a new chef, Chef Marcus Monteiro, and have reinvented their lunch, dinner, dessert, and cocktail menu for Summer 2014.
Is it possible to pick one type of cuisine to describe what's cooking in the kitchen? Fortunately it isn't that simple. Guests can expect meals inspired by the rustic kitchen of southern Italy as well as the Spanish and North African coastlines. How? The Kitchen has taken all of the spices and expectation of the Mediterranean and brings them together to create something entirely new and unique.
If you are anything like me and you prefer dessert first you are absolutely in luck, The Kitchen has a leading pastry chef, Chef Mark Cheese that has prepared a selection of desserts that are perfect for the summer. Top of my "to try" list? The rhubarb-buttermilk soufflé coconut tart with pineapple vanilla compote and coconut-ginger ice cream!
Head to The Kitchen at Brassaii at 461 King St West to try all the new menu options and be sure to follow their culinary confections on Instragram: @thekitchenatbrassaii
