With a nod to Catcher In The Rye right there in the name, we probably would've taken any reason to love this cozy spot tucked into the Thompson Hotel. But once we tried it, we couldn't get enough of its amazing fare for pretty much every meal. But we'll stick to brunch for now: The Brioche French Toast with Apple Compote will full-on melt in your mouth! And how about a Bourbon Milkshake to shake off that hangover? Hair of the dog, dear friends, hair of the dog!
