Fine dining in Richmond Hill or thereabouts?

Any suggestions? The only place I know is Terra, but I am considering it plan B. Been there a couple of times and is looking for something new. Thanks.

  1. I rarely venture up north, but had a really great dinner at Il Postino last year. Very intimate, cozy, locally sourced menu.

    If you don't mind a short drive, Auberge Du Pommier or Zee Grill would be my choice.

        Hi Charles,

        Do you regularily go to Richmond Grill? I tried it about 3-4 years ago based on a few recs here and elsewhere and found it to be very underwhelming, just curious with your experience with it

          Together with Tutto Bene, Richmond Grill used to my go to place for 'more than decent 'Western Continental cuisine' in the Richmond Hill area. However, I have not been back over a year!
          Finding their price a touch steep. Nowadays, for similar but better 'value for money' food, I prefer driving a bit more, down to the Mount Pleasant area instead!
          I used to love the 'Grilled Calamari with lemon, garlic, anchovies and olive' as well as the 'Veal Chop, red wine reduction and mashed potatoes' of Richmond Grill. The former, I found to be as good as Pangea's.
          I checked RG's recent menu on their website and found the dish still there!

      2. If you are up for the drive all the way to Aurora, Joia is good Italian. Not great, but good, and much more reasonably priced than Terra.
