|Late Lunchers enjoying some Vino|
|TTR California Burger|
This was a very tasty burger. The meat was a little peppery, not excessively seasoned, and had good char on the outside but was still quite juicy. The Veggies were very fresh, the bacon sweet and crispy yet chewy. I chose to pair the burger with a class of the New Harbor Pinot Noir from out of New Zealand. This red wine was a little dry for a red, had a bit of an oak essence, and a couple of layers of flavour I couldn't identify. I know I liked it, that's for sure. If I'd had a beer, I'd have paired an Oktoberfest or a Porter with it. Beer is more my thing, but I am partial to Pinot Noir for red wines and Pinot Grigio for white wines. And this was a good Pinot Noir.
The service was a little slow, but was attentive and did make regular call backs. The food came fresh and hot--it wasn't warmed over or undercooked either. Overall I had a nice, relaxed lunch that was both delicious and fresh. Nothing to complain about in my book.
