Lunch at Share at the Westin

A colleague and I were staffing a table at a conference recently at the Westin Hotel. We decided to lunch at Share, the hotel's restaurant, for convenience's sake. We had missed breakfast, but were able to take advantage of the fixed price lunch menu, which included coffee, a main, and a dessert for only $15.

To start, we decided to share an order of corn fritters. Crispy and slightly sweet, the warm maple vinaigrette went well with them, as did the guacamole, which was a surprise. An interesting flavour profile, but it worked in a Southern kind of way.

We both had the avocado toast three ways, which led to jokes about why this meant we would never have nice things. Jokes aside, the finger-sized toasts were piled high with avocado, as well as three different toppings - smoked salmon (my favourite), caramelized onions (with feta, that I held), and tomato with balsamic dressing. A heaping pile of arugula was on the side.

Our dessert was the creme brûlée, topped with some fruit and garnished with a small biscotti. The top was perfectly crispy and not burned. It was a great end to a great meal.
