Lunch Pick: Auberge du Pommier's Champagne terrace menu

Uptown types take note: Auberge du Pommier has launched a tony terrace menu. Meant to occupy late, lazy afternoons, the so-called Champagne Terrace menu extends from 2 to 6 p.m. on weekdays, and sees patrons swilling champagne while tucking into tidy bites. Located just north of a rather unappetizing stretch of Yonge at York Mills, the restaurant’s outdoor area feels like you’ve landed smack dab in the French countryside with stonework and greenery aplenty helping to seal the deal.

Since it’s a late lunch, oysters and bubbly are just the ticket (one must save room for dinner, after all). In terms of bubbly, there’s but a single option: Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, hailing from the real-deal Champagne region in France ($12). No wannabes served here. Oyster-wise, the selection will rotate depending on what’s in season ($19). The launch party saw both the smaller kusshi variants — coming from the west coast — alongside some bigger PEI raspberry points served with a shallot mignonette. Those in the need of a bit more nosh can order some hand-cut tartare with white anchovy and pickles or grilled octopus with harissa (both $19).

Auberge Du Pommier, 4150 Yonge St., 416-222-2220
