Quick Lunch at One @ the Hazelton

  • 5

Popped in for a quick lunch at the bar of Mark McKewan's new restaurant One at Yorkville & Hazeleton. The patio was booked solid (2nd day open) so I sat at the bar. Amazing room you can see that money was no object in everything. Open and airy yet still cozy... unlike JK Gardiner which is open and airy but feels cold. They say they are open 365 days a year and 24hours a day BUT quilified it saying that was for room service :-) restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner until 2am each night.

I ordered the mini burger trio and a cocktail. The staf was very pleasant but a bit overwhemled by the newness of everything so I forgive them for not describing what each burger was.. 3 mini burgers $24 same size as at Trevors for almost twice the price.. but hey this is yorkville.. nice and juicy and pink in the middle. first had a hard cheese and grilled onions, 2nd had avacado, 3rd had an unknown tastey substance :-) nice light lunch but not something I will do too often as my budget does not do $43 lunches.

I will definately go back for dinner with a special someone who will appreciate the decor, quality and the flavours...

One has definately brought the quality of yorkville up a couple of notches..

      Thank you for the great review. I will definetely drop by these days.
      Do you know their website? Is the dinner menu slightly more expensive?
      How does the food compare with Bymark, in your opinion?
