Expert review of Union

Farm fresh, eat local room right on Ossington.

With French and Italian influences and a whole lot of local ingredients, Union is one of the absolute best bets on Ossington. They manage to keep a restaurant feel during food service hours, but comfortably sidle into bar territory once the menus have been packed away.

Food and drink: 

A small menu changes regularly, depending on what the chef finds in the farmers markets. Wine is prciey, but well chosen.

Recommended dishes: 

For lunch, I'm partial to the crispy polenta gratin with braised greens and tomato jus and the tasty confit chicken wings. For dinner, if I don't opt for the polenta again, I'm all about those sticky ribs and the family servings of potatoes. The elk slider burgers are delicious.

Ambience: 

Easygoing, friendly, fun.

Service: 

Best in town. Personal and personable.

Location: 

In the middle of the Ossington strip.

Price advice: 

I usually opt for lunch here, since food is way cheaper for often very similar dishes. If you're in town on a Sunday night, though, the fixed price Paris style dinners are great with various meal options costing between $22 to $50 for a full four course feast.
