Leafy birthday

Yesterday was Lindsay’s birthday, the first time in a couple of years we haven’t spent it in Europe. It was a much more low-key day, but had a seriously delicious ending. We went back to Maple Leaf Tavern for the first time since we went for my birthday last year and, frankly, we killed it.

    • cocktails
  • whole Ontario Burrata (virgin canola oil, Baco Noir balsamic, seasonal garnish, toast)
