Garden @ Eleven - Anyone been?
Has any fellow chowhound tried this new restaurnat? With ex-Perigee executive chef Pat Riley at the helm, the food 'SHOULD BE GOOD'. Can any one confirm? Do they have chef's tasting menus? How about price range? Thx!
From the looks of the menu, on the website, it is just setting up to be a neighboorhood spot. The prices are sure nowhere near Perigee. The cost of their highest main course is lower then the mid range appetizer I had last time I was at Perigee. As far as taking risks maybe their not trying to - it sure didn't seem to work out with Brad Moore. Who knows?
I posted a short review of lunch there a few days ago in this thread: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/511676
In short, it's certainly not Perigee, at least not yet -- but it's a lot cheaper. Full menus are on the website at http://eleventoronto.com
The chef change is official. Amy Pataki wrote about it in this week's star. ChefDB now lists Pat Riley as "Executive Chef" of The Garden @ Eleven, and Brad Moore as "Executive Chef Partner", though, which is slightly odd.
