The Harbord Room

I've been hearing great things about The Harbord Room, a quaint little restaurant nestled in a Victorian house on Harbord Street. It actually took me awhile to locate the restaurant since I was looking on the wrong side of the street. The house is small, so seating is limited inside, but they do have a very lovely patio in the back. Reservation is also highly recommended.
It was a very hot day, so I started with a super refreshing sangria ($14), which was pre-made in an individual mason jar. The Harbord Room's version "starts with some pink wine, fresh strawberry and rhubarb juice, a splash of brandy and a medley of seasonal berries and kiwi - topped off with ginger ale". Hands down, this was the most delicious sangria that I've tasted all summer long! My only complaint is that I found it a tad pricey at $14. I could almost order another burger with that price tag.
We shared two dishes, the first being soft-shell crab po' boy ($17) with red cabbage slaw, house pickles with tarragon and old bay mayo. Each order includes two mini sandwiches, accompanied by spicy chips.

For Jeremy's birthday, I took him to Bestellen for dinner, though truthfully I was the one craving for a good burger. Having heard some good things about their steak and burger, I was eager to try for myself.
We requested to sit by the windows for optimal lighting. The restaurant is pretty big with lots of seating so getting a reservation was pretty easy.
