Profile Last Updated: March 18, 2008
With the original tin ceiling, the diner sports a clean and cozy front room decorated in the French bistro style, with a row of tables on one side and on the other, the bar and an inviting fireplace. The intimate back room is outfitted with Tiffany lamps and a dark wood china cabinet and is much sought after by couples on a romantic first date.
Real Food for Real People
With the motto, “serving real food to real people,” the diner’s menu carries staples like a six-ounce certified Angus beef hamburger. Apparently, these burgers are in high demand - a client once requested one specially-prepared and flown into Venice where she was summering. The diner also offers such diverse items as grilled citrus-glazed Atlantic salmon and grilled French red deer venison as well as popular brunch items such as their famous eggs Dostoyevsky with smoked salmon and orange Hollandaise sauce. The wine list shows variety and good value with four reds and four whites below $40, and eight to 12 by the glass.
Flair for Fusion
Defining fusion before it became the buzz word in North American cuisine, the Rosedale Diner also offers such playful dishes as a decadent poutine with off-the-bone beef short ribs and real cheese curds doused in veal demi-glace gravy. Presented with a bottle of Veuve Cliquot champagne, it is served with much flair.
