(Following is the first of a series of articles focused on the many incredible restaurants awaiting visitors in nearby London, Ontario.)
Braise Food & Wine has a particular glamour with its chic, ultra-sophisticated decor combined with deliciously intelligent and artful cuisine. The eco-friendly restaurant design incorporates organic materials mixed with contemporary surfaces for a crisp, eclectic, urban sensibility. A solid walnut-topped bar is one of the focal points in the 126-seat room, which includes a 30-seat bar and comfortable lounge.
Prepare to enjoy a seminal, seasonal and from scratch, farm-to-table dining experience. Chef Kristian Crossen’s cuisine is approachable, yet dramatic, and implemented with impeccable skill and finesse. Crossen’s pursuit of the highest quality sustainable ingredients and his knowledge of Canadian cuisine form the framework for his many creative offerings. This allows his culinary brigade to showcase a selection of in-house specialties, signature flavors and taste experiences that change to take advantage of the seasons. The menus, which change frequently, are cultural journeys into the local terroir, and much more.
