The Thrill of the Chase

October 11, 2013

Buzzy, double-whammy, The Chase, may just be the most exciting thing to hit the Financial District since ever.

Call it gluttony, but in one night, we visited both restaurants: the casual The Chase Fish & Oyster downstairs, and the upscale The Chase, located upstairs, with a picturesque patio to boot. Downstairs, we began with the Shipwreck cocktail ($14), a refreshing combo of gin, Pimm’s, lime, cucumber, and mint, and split the bite-size Oyster PoBoy Sliders ($11), and the intriguing take on the California Roll ($19), with Dungeness crab and sweet corn salsa masterfully wrapped with avocado slices. Lovers of seafood simplicity will appreciate the Yonge Platter ($50), a mix of fresh oysters, clams, tuna, and shrimp.

Wanting to take advantage of the last little bit of warm weather, we made our way to the patio for a glass of wine or two, and then proceeded to sample some of its original menu. Still with seafood in mind, we ordered the Octopus ($23), served with spicy pork sausage, potatoes, arugula, and salsa verde a powerful dish for the power view of Toronto. Anya Georgijevic
