Beaumont Kitchen

without comments

My friends and I thought we’d check out Beaumont Kitchen for dinner two weeks ago since it had just opened up at Sherway Gardens. It opened up on a thursday and we went for dinner two days later on the saturday. Being part of the Oliver and Bonacini family of restaurants, we knew it had to be good. Located inside of the newly opened Saks Fifth Avenue, this place offers eclectic west coast cuisine as it’s fare.


The Atmosphere

Beaumont Kitchen - funky lights
Really neat lights

It’s not an overly large space but being situated inside of Saks Fifth Avenue, I think they’re catering more towards the shopping crowd. 3/4 of the space is dedicated to sit down tables for dining. The remaining 1/4 is more like a lounge with couches and coffee tables situated in front of them.

Nice big bar

The bar is pretty awesome to look at.


The Food

Beaumont Kitchen - appetizer
Appetizer – complimentary 

When my friend checked out opening night, a hostess had given her a coupon for a complimentary appetizer, so we claimed it this night. I vaguely remember what our server told us but in-between the happy squeals of my baby, I could make out the words “red pepper”, “house baked pita”, and “olive oil”. So adding them all together it would be some sort of red pepper  dip drizzled with olive oil, served along house baked pita. It really was delicious and too bad it wasn’t on the main menu. I would definitely order this again!


Beaumont Kitchen - watermelon heat
Watermelon Heat – $7

I loved that they had a mocktail section in their drinks menu. As a breastfeeding mom, I’ve been restricting myself from alcohol consumption so a mocktail was a welcome sight. This watermelon heat was fantastic. Watermelon juice with chilis, which gave it some pretty intense heat! The sparkling water makes it more refreshing which would make this mocktail perfect in the summertime.


Beaumont Kitchen - BC Sockeye Salmon
B.C. Sockeye Salmon – $26

I ordered the B.C. Sockeye salmon mostly because I knew I could also feed it to my little guy (he’s 11 months now!). The salmon was cooked perfectly which is that really narrow window between raw and fully cooked. It’s served with cucumber crème fraîche and a warm quinoa salad that included carrots, parsnips, and romaine lettuce. The romaine lettuce was a little puzzling, but the root veggies were good with the quinoa. I think my little guy ended up eating more salmon than me. This was easily my favourite dish of the evening.


Beaumont Kitchen - linguine
Linguine – $19

The Mr ordered linguine, which had prawns, and scallops in a basil pesto sauce. The menu also said there was white wine in there but I couldn’t really taste any. The seafood was wonderful and the pasta al dente, but it wasn’t very impressive.


Beaumont Kitchen - lime posset
Lime Posset – $6

For dessert, I ordered the lime posset. I was expecting a drink but it came out as a kind of mousse. It very heavily reminded me of key lime pie, minus the crust. Plus because of the type of dish it was served in (round and shallow dish), it was a lot of “key lime pie filling”. I kept on wishing for a cookie or some crust to go with this.


Beaumont Kitchen - vanilla cheesecake
Vanilla Cheesecake – $9

The Mr ordered vanilla cheesecake, and I’m really glad he did because this was a dessert winner! It’s vanilla cheesecake wrapped in phyllo pastry, and topped with maple-braised pears and hazelnuts. If you didn’t tell me it was cheesecake that was wrapped I never would have guessed. There are so many flavours here that I thought they’d be competing with each other but they actually work really well with each other. Order this. You will not regret it.


The Verdict

I am in love with this place. Not only is the food delicious, it’s also a restaurant that’s in the west end of town, which means I don’t have to make the trek downtown in order to find good food. The fact that it’s in Sherway Gardens could be dangerous…
