Anyone looking for a fresh, new burger experience in Toronto’s West End should definitely discover Bravo Restaurant. Opened just a few months ago by the same minds that founded Queen Margherita Pizza, Bravo Restaurant takes high-quality, local ingredients and turns them into hamburger wizardry.
Located on 1588 Dundas Street West, in Brockton Village, Bravo Restaurant prides itself on sourcing local, seasonal ingredients. They also grind their burger patties daily — with 100% premium grain-fed Canadian beef — providing a freshness that is difficult to match. Oh yes, then there’s the matter of the innovative toppings and flavour combinations.
Try their Palmerston burger, with honey roasted fig, guanciale, brie, pistachio, arugula and balsamic aioli, or the Southside, featuring pickled jalapeno, Monterey Jack cheese, charred onion, guacamole, tortilla crisp, lettuce and ancho aioli. Bravo Restaurant also has the Rosamaria — a grilled chicken burger with a creamy apple-red onion slaw and arugula on rosemary focaccia — plus vegetarians can enjoy the Toscana: a crispy eggplant and goat cheese patty, topped with arugula, sundried tomato ‘marinara,’ balsamic reduction and roasted garlic and rosemary aioli.
If, for some reason (atmospheric pressure changes, maybe?), you’re not in a burger mood, Bravo Restaurant also offers a grilled caesar salad, as well as the E.A.T.C.O.B.B — grilled chicken breast, lardons, avocado, Granny Smith apple, arugula, cherry tomato, panko soft-poached egg and chives, with a red wine and smoked gorgonzola vinaigrette. Bravo Restaurant also offers loaded fries, calamari, chicken hushpuppies and chicken wings, along with cannoli and dulce vita for dessert, The best part? You won’t need to battle through the increasingly-colder weather outside, as Bravo Restaurant’s sultry burgers can be delivered right to your door on Just Eat.
