Review: Drake Devonshire pairs Queen West cool with Prince Edward County flavours
Drake Devonshire ★★★½
24 Wharf St., 613-399-1851
The bucolic Prince Edward County hotel and restaurant imports cool touches from Queen West, and chef Matt DeMille’s menu makes the most of the local larder. To start, succulent confit duck wings have a craggy caramelized shell, and shrimp crudo is bright with Quebec canola oil and the briny pop of elderberry capers. Seared local pickerel is buttery and juicy, lifted by a minty salsa verde and fresh fava beans. It pairs brilliantly with an unoaked chardonnay from area producer Rosehill Run (it’s one of many county wines on offer). A sweet cream ice cream, stewed rhubarb and crisp streusel sundae makes for a gorgeous, summery finish—but so do s’mores by the firepit on the deck that stretches nearly to the shoreline of the gently lapping lake.

How on earth is an establishment in Wellington, ON a point for team west??? Did the chip on your shoulder finally roll off and give you a head injury?
WELLINGTON ONTARIO MORON! LOL This is your only job and you just failed at it!
you might want to check the number. i did. he didn’t add to it. you failed. and you’re too invested in hating.
Actually it was sitting at 122 this morning and now it’s at 121. Why put the list up if it has no bearing with Toronto? It’s because the guy thought it was Wellington St and something to do with the Drake I bet. So no, I didn’t fail, someone just used the edit button.
