A wise person once said that the ultimate purpose of traveling is to eat exorbitant meals until you lapse into a self-induced coma. That wise person was me. Golly, I'm so smart!
To sell you on the virtues of Beach Bay Cafe and Patio, I'm going to commit ad verecundiam by mentioning that it's in the same location as the now-closed Raincity Grill, whose head chef has appeared on Simply Ming. If nothing in the previous sentence does anything for you, I'll mention that it is located right along English Bay beach, and the restaurant's sleek, all-white decor combines with the wonderful views to create a great summer vibe. The menu is limited to a small selection of seasonal dishes that incorporate a variety of vibrant tastes and textures.
Oh, and all of the the stuff that I ordered and then crammed down my cramhole tasted great! To start things off, I went with a cocktail that they had just added to their menu. With Tanqueray as its base and some lemon and egg white mixed in, it was a refreshing, pillowy delight. For the entree, I selected a striploin of beef that came with some spinach, a large wedge of roasted potatos, and crucially, some bone marrow. Bone marrow is easily the greatest food substance around. It's better than world peace. Spreading that directly on to the striploin made for some transcendent forkfuls.
There is one caveat worth mentioning here: even with a favorable exchange rate in place (USA! USA!), this meal wasn't cheap. One would have to be pretty well off to be able to eat at places like this on a regular basis. If you're looking for a place to facilitate a special indulgence, however, you will likely be happy here.
