North on Breakfast Television

Gravenhurst did itself proud this morning with an amazing turn out for the Breakfast Television Broadcast!
Alain had a few minutes on air with Dina chatting about the restaurant and our new menu.
Dina and Kevin were in the restaurant for dinner on Thursday evening - what a lovely group of people!
Wouldn't it be neat if they could come back again next year?
We'll create an album on our Facebook page so you can see more photos of the terrific day.

North's New House Blend Coffee

We're excited to announce our new House Blend Coffee created and roasted specifically for North by Diesel House Roastery in Bracebridge.

We sampled three different blends created by Diesel House to our specifications and think we've got a winner. A combination of Bolivian, Peruvian and Honduran coffee beans, our roast is full of good, strong flavour without any bitterness. We think it will be the perfect finish to a memorable meal here at North.

We've also created labelling specific to our blend - and are proud to have partnered with our four favourite artists from Auburn Art Gallery here in Gravenhurst.

Pictured on this label is gorgeous work by Michelle Basic Hendry. Over the next week or so we'll reveal the other three artists' labels.

New Menu Reveal at North!

We had a wonderful group of people in the restaurant on Thursday night as Alain revealed some of his new summer menu - and two of our favourite Wine Merchants sampled 12 of their wines.

On the 'menu' was wild mushrooms with brandy cream, heirloom tomato tarts with tapenade and goat cheese, smoked sable fish, Brome Lake Duck Breast and porcini rubbed Angus beef tenderloin.

Some of the wine we tasted included a Chenin Blanc, a Frog's Leap Rose, a Viognier, Shiraz and Zinfandel.

The pairings were wonderfully successful, and many of those who attended tried food and wine combinations that were a resounding success.

Thanks to Andrew who organized the event, and to Chris from Cave Spring/The Vine and Malcolm from Rogers and Co. It was a wonderful night!
