Aug 27: ONE ★★★★
Another famed birth-child of Mark McEwan, ONE might be the only in-hotel restaurant worth visiting. It is a place to be seen. It is a dimly lit and savvy. One honoured co-patron that night was National Post contributor and redeemed ex-con Conrad Black. I was happy to see our culinary preferences aligned like most of our views. The chicken was gigantic and worth every dollar. The barbeque sauce, corn chips and potato salad are reminiscent of backyard barbeques. But this is not any backyard (Rosedale, perhaps?). The juicy half chicken and ranch dominated potato salad are mouthfuls of flavour. They are calmed by almost-sour tomatoes and crunch chips.
