MILESTONES GRILL and BAR
1200 Brant Street, Burlington On., L7P 1X8, (905) 332-6057,Went to Milestones on a Saturday after returning from a long walk in Toronto. I was famished and my son and I went here for dinner. We have been to a number of Milestones in Toronto and Ottawa, so we thought we would try this one after finding many other restaurants in downtown Burlington totally full. Even Milestones was very busy, but we got a table.
We began by ordering drinks. I had a large glass (later to be followed by a small glass) of California Merlot and my son had a beer.
We began our dinner with an app each. I had the phylo shrimp (which are always delicious in Milestones) and my son had the hot spinach and artichoke dip.
My son Mark (http://www.markallenrealty.ca/) had the Kobe style classic meatloaf, with garlic mashed potatoes, lightly fried onion strings, Shitake mushroom au jus and seasonal vegetables. It was rather large and he had to take the rest home. The vegetables were boring and rather bland.
I had the portobello mushroom chicken which included a double breast of chicken, sliced portobello mushrooms sauteed in olive oil with basil, garlic and reduced Reggiano cream over capellini.
I also found the vegetables rather boring, however the amount food was substantial. The service was good and the food was typical of most Milestones although we found it a little bland here.
