Benchmark is Niagara college’s NOTL restaurant and they live up to their motto of 5 star quality for 3 star prices.
The value I got for the $20 “trust us” 3 course tasting menu (selected by the apprentice chefs) is outstanding. (Or $25 with wine or beer.)
First up was a green salad with smoked salmon and scallop terrine. Excellent. Loved the light dressing.
The main was a buttermilk chicken sandwich with homemade slightly crispy fries. Fries are amazing. I love that it comes out on a hot plate. What a great combo with the Dijon mustard, coleslaw and garlic aioli.
From the dessert picture, do I have to say anymore? The Lemon bar was quite tasty. But you’ll need a knife or your fingers as it crumbled when I stuck a fork in it.
Overall what a great meal and awesome value too. I’d definitely recommend any foodies to check this out. I know I’ll be back for sure.
