Located on the corner of Hamilton and Nelson, Hamilton Street Grill has been a Yaletown staple for the past 16 years. Recently, SocialShopper featured a ridiculously good deal on their website. A 3-Course Meal for two at Hamilton Street Grill for $45.
Despite living in Yaletown, I was surprised I hadn’t had the opportunity to visit Hamilton Street Grill yet. Although the restaurant isn’t as flashy as some of the other downtown steakhouses, which have opened in recent years (like Black & Blue or The Keg in Yaletown with their rooftop patios), being in restaurant industry for over a decade is something to brag about.
I started off with the Terrine Maison with Cornichon, Grainy Dijon and Crostini, which is a good choice for anyone who likes chunky pâté with charcuterie-style sides.
My boyfriend had the Caesar Salad with Roasted Garlic Dressing and Parmesan Reggiano Cheese, which was served in a chilled bowl so you get that crunchy-fresh salad texture.
For the main course we both ordered the hearty Angus Beef Sirloin au Poivre with Brandy Peppercream Sauce. The side of Kennebec Fries gave the dish a French touch – think: Steak-Frites. Other main course choices included the Wild BC Salmon with Lemon Chive Beurre Blanc or the Seared Chicken Breast with Sherry Mushroom Sauce.
For dessert, I had the Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée, which had a thick (well, thicker than what I’m used to), crunchy caramel layer on top of the custard. My boyfriend had the Belgian Chocolate Mousse, which had a rich, whipped and spongy texture.
If you’re looking for a cozy restaurant in the heart of Yaletown to enjoy a good steak or comfort food, give Hamilton Street Grill a try!
