June 18th, 2012Kingston Restaurants- Where to dine
West Seventy6 Grill
One our most recent stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott Kingston Water’s Edge, we chose to dine for dinner at the West Seventy6 Grill, which offers a variety of unique dishes with an accent on the flavors of the Caribbean. Overlooking Lake Ontario, the restaurant features a relaxed and welcoming ambiance and is the site of Kingston’s only waterfront patio.
When we entered the restaurant we were instantly greeted and asked to take a seat. We chose to sit at a small table on the patio, so we could enjoy the beautiful view.
Dave, the restaurant supervisor started off our meal with some ah-mooze bouche. Bread with a red pepper butter was also served. The butter flavored with roasted red bell pepper had a nice rich taste. For our entree both my husband and I decided to order the Rib Eye 14 oz steak, which is aged 28 days, trained in elocution and comportment, and finished with a house-made rub. The steak was cooked to perfection and the doubled stuffed Jackson potatoes were extremely flavorful! Chef Jamie Hussey definitely gets an A in presentation and flavor.
For dessert both my husband and I decided to try the house-made cheesecake of the day, which was a chocolate ginger cheesecake. It was pure heaven, which now has my mouth watering just thinking of it. I found the cheesecake to be rich, but not overly sweet and velvety in texture.
The staff was just as good as the food and our waitress Heather was very friendly
