Hidden Hughes

July 29, 2011

Chuck Hughes may be all over the place these days, from his hit Food
Network TV show Chucks Day Off and his recent Iron Chef
win, to teaching Kathie Lee and Hoda how
to make poutine
on The Today Show.

But his new restaurant, Le Bremner, isnt all that easy to find. With no
website and a sign stating simply Restaurant outside the door, we had to
turn to our foodie friends on Twitter to get the goods. Luckily, you
wont have to work as hard to reserve a spot at the cozy restaurant which
serves up some of Chucks best, including nirvana-on-a-plate raw striped
bass with pickled radish, mint and pistachio ($15).

Specializing in seafood, raw and cooked, Le Bremner also offers hearty
lamb and chorizo meatballs ($17) as well as bread and cheese plates that
will sway even the most lactose-intolerant. Theres no cocktail list,
just savvy waitstaff who can choose your drink (mixed with house-made
syrups) based on the flavours you like best. We listed ginger,
grapefruit and cilantro and ended up with a deliciously fresh and
slightly spicy vodka, sake, ginger and grapefruit cocktail.
