Lobster Summer @ The Keg

I recently went to the newly opened Keg at Richmond Hill. Or rather, they moved the old location to another new building in the same plaza, so technically it's "new". But the new building is indeed a lot bigger and nicer.
The bread at the Keg never disappoints me, especially when it's freshly baked.
French onion soup- hearty beef broth, Spanish onions, Swiss and Parmesan cheeses. I enjoyed all that gooey, cheesy and savoury goodness! Also paired great with the bread!
Side Keg Caesar- crisp romaine and aged Parmesan cheese in a creamy dressing. Not much to write about, as this was just an ordinary Caesar salad that came with our steak dinner. The croutons were a little burned, however.
Crab cakes- sweet Jonah and lump Dungeness crab, hand formed and served with a dill caper mayo. I generally love crab cakes, and this was not an exception! There were chunky pieces of sweet crab meat packed into pan fried patties, and the creamy dill caper mayo was a great accompaniment. No complaints here. However, I thought the portion was pretty small, even in my standards.
Seafood Sirloin- grilled top sirloin steak, topped with lobster, shrimp and scallops in a chive velouté sauce, with grilled vegetables and double baked potato. I found the steak itself mediocre, and the seafood topping didn't have that wow factor that I was expecting. However, I  enjoyed all the grilled veggies, and the double baked potato was a comforting delight. Next time, I'll stick with my preferred prime rib or filet Mignon cut of steak.
