On Top of the World – Brunching at 360 Restaurant

When our family friend from Switzerland let us know he would be in town for the weekend, we knew we had a limited time to really show him Toronto’s sights, sounds and food! We decided to go ALL IN and made reservations for CN Tower’s 360 restaurant prix fixe lunch.

View from from the top. We got to see a birds eye view of a Blue Jays game with an open dome.

If you’re in Toronto for the first time you have to visit the tower. Yes, it’s a touristy experience but the views are spectacular especially if you’re dining in the 360 restaurant which turns 1 full rotation every 72 minutes. You literally get to see everything!

The lunch menu has a wide selection of offerings – they even have a special vegetarian menu for the herbivores out there.

What we loved

Pickerel

360 Restaurant CN Tower Brunch Toronto

PAN ROASTED ONTARIO PICKEREL WITH BUTTERED CHAYOTE SQUASH
Cauliflower purée, lemon caper beurre blanc

I love cauliflower purée! The pickerel was well done and lemon caper beurre blanc was tangy but not over powering.

Calf Liver and Sweet Breads

360 Restaurant CN Tower Brunch Toronto

GRILLED ONTARIO CALF’S LIVER AND CRISPY SWEETBREADS
French beans, caramelized onions and maple smoked bacon

My mom ordered this as she loves liver! While I don’t share her fondness for that particular organ, I do love sweet breads and managed to snag one off her plate. Great hearty flavours here.

Lava Cake

360 Restaurant CN Tower Brunch Toronto

LINDT DARK CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE
Espresso crème Anglaise, Lindt milk chocolate ice cream

Chocoholics – if you’re gonna be 1,151.6 ft off the ground you as well make your bird’s eye view perfect with this dessert.

What we wouldn’t order next time

Mussels and Clams

360 Restaurant CN Tower Brunch Toronto

STEAMED PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND MUSSELS AND CLAMS
Vegetable julienne, tomato saffron broth

Any time mussels are on the menu it’s the first thing I order. While the seafood was fresh there just wasn’t enough tomato saffron broth leaving the clams and mussels to taste bland. The container also didn’t make it easy for you to get to the broth which was buried under the shells.

Mushroom Bruschetta

360 Restaurant CN Tower Brunch Toronto

WILD MUSHROOM BRUSCHETTA
Spiced olivada, shaved Pecorino cheese

Flavours were on point but the toast a little too hard. Toppings fell off easily so you weren’t really getting the full bite experience.

After our meal we decided to explore the Glass Floor and Look Out Floors which were complimentary with our meals!
