Following on with my wine bar tour in Toronto, Union 72 was next on the hitlist, with 9 local Canadian wines available by the glass, I tried 4 of them while there.
I was given a seat at the bar by the front window and ordered the Organic greens, potato rosti, chevre and Union smoked bacon to start. The bacon gave the dish a delicious punch to compliment the creamy goats cheese and salad vinaigrette. The warm, crisp potato rosti was very pleasant as well.
For the main course, I had the Steak hachette. This was a simple dish in some ways, there are 4-5 components and nothing overly flashy technique wise, but it tasted great, the beef was seared nicely and rare on the inside then the pinch of habanero salsa on the side had an excellent kick to it.
Overall the experience at Union 72 was very good, the food was well executed and the flavours were allowed to shine through, and the wines were for the most part very good, with the Fielding Pinot Gris one of the highlights of the 20+ wines tasted while in Canada.
