My favorite gastronomic zone in Toronto is King West Village (my loves: Buca, Le Select, Crush, Brassaii and Lee’s). I am excited to be sharing with you these pictures from my new favorite member of this King West Foody Family, Marben.
The interior of the space is reminiscent of a quirky farm house: mason jar chandeliers, hearth bread served on wood planks, pictures of forest animals and an amazing wooden sculpture which whisks its way through the dining room like a wave running towards a whirlpool. It was my mothers birthday so we banded together for a delicious Sunday brunch to catch up on Family Matters.
We enjoyed the following:
Organic Cava and fresh grapefruit juice
The SJ: maple syrup, double shot of espresso, capp
Ceasar: served in a cutesy mason jar
Hearth Bread with churned butter and concord grape and strawberry preserve
Little Bird Salad: barley, rye berries quinoa, celery, apple, almonds
Bread Pudding French Toast: Honey fruit with bacon
Traditional: 2 eggs, fries kennedy with sausage.
Michelle’s Benny: peameal, cheddar, hollandaise
Pork and Beans
#118 restaurant reviewed in Ontario since moving to Toronto in 2010.
