The Keg Mansion
dre @ Jarvis & Wellesley: A usual birthday dinner is a trip to The Keg. On this occasion, it wasn't anyone's birthday, but we just decided to go check out The Keg Mansion. Apparently this old mansion is haunted on the 3rd floor. The house was very big and the 2nd floor is used as a bar, and the main floor is the main restaurant.
We ordered a lot of food that night because we were extra hungry. In the bar upstairs while we were waiting for a table, we got some bruschetta and some drinks, a ginger lemonade and a Caesar. The bruschetta was really really good! The bread was freshly baked. There was a good amount of tomatoes, spices and cheese. It was one of the best bruschettas I've ever had.
We also got some calamari. These were nothing special, and the vegetables that came with the dish were very salty.
Mike got his usual New York Striploin, made Chicago style, which means charred on the outside, and medium rare on the inside. It was perfectly cooked, but he said it wasn't the best piece of steak he's ever had.
I tried the Creole Chicken - Shrimp and scallops sautéed in Creole seasonings on tender chicken. The chicken was tender, but I found everything really salty. Because we had all this food beforehand, I only had a couple of bites and packed the rest home. The fries were underwhelming as well.
On another occasion, I had something else that was non-steak - the BBQ ribs. Again, the ribs were nothing special, so I recommend anyone going to The Keg just to stick with their steak. And bruschetta!
