Weekend Gourmet at Scaramouche and Hammersmith's

Last weekend was 2hung's bday and we celebrated over dinner at Scaramouche.  Scaramouche has a Restaurant area and a Pasta Bar and Grill.  We dined in the Restaurant.  Their service was great and it was obvious that they have a lot of returning customers.  The food was delicious.  We started with an amuse bouche and a half a dozen oysters as appetizer.
For mains, we ordered the halibut and the pasta special which was a gnocchi with wild mushrooms.  The halibut was cooked to perfection!  The gnocchi dish was pretty small, and I later realized that it was probably considered an appetizer, but it was very yummy.
 Look at the happy bday boy.
We finished off with a blueberry mille-feuille for dessert.
We continued our gourmet weekend with brunch at Hammersmith's in Riverdale.  Hammersmith's is a cute little spot and they specialize in duck which is kind of interesting for brunch.  We tried one of their scones and it was yummy but small enough not to feel guilty about eating all on your own.
We ordered the duck plate and a bacon, tomato and arugula sandwich.  The sandwich was packed with bacon.  The duck meat was tender and the plate came with a duck egg!  The egg yolk was very thick.  I think that's where all the extra cholesterol lies.  We also ordered a side of bacon hash.  Definitely a good place to return to for brunch.
