I was surprised by how many restaurants are closed on Sunday in touristy Kingston!
We decided on The Keg. Since our guest is 92, we were dropped off near the door. Then hubby went round and round (including a one way street) seeking parking which apparently is a prime commodity. Eventually, he was told there is a small parking lot behind the restaurant and he squeezed into the very last spot.
We remember the building as the old Whig Standard. We were greeted and, even with a reservation, were asked to be seated in the hall while they prepared our table. After awhile and when hubby finally arrived, we were ushered downstairs to our booth in a small, gloomy room where the tables were too close together.
Service was impeccable. Richard highly recommended the Miso Flatiron Special @$32. We were a little reluctant because it is not a quality cut and seems to be somewhat of a fad these days. One followed his advice. Other entrees were oven roasted chicken and Prime Rib.
The domestic red wine was quite reasonable @$28. The bread was a square dense loaf. We requested more butter and, got not only butter, but a spread and more bread. Very generous!
The entree prices are high. $29 for a 1/4 chicken on mashed with some spouts is pretty rich. My Prime Rib au jus with tangy horseradish, a large baked potato and crispy fried onion strings @ $33 was the best dish. It was tender, tasty and cooked as ordered. The sliced Flatiron special with gnocchi and mixed veggies arrived luke warm. When Richard checked in, he took the plate to be reheated. Then the Manager arrived to apologize and said a new plate was being prepared. It came out a bit rarer than the original but hot! When we got our bill, the $32 charge was “on us.” Quite honestly, they did everything possible to rectify the situation. I was impressed!
