For the Love of Lobster

At the helm of Fairmont Royal York’s passionate culinary professionals, Executive Chef jW Foster is proud to participate in the annual PEI Lobster Roll Call event to support Prince Edward Island’s Lobster Fishers and to further promote tourism for the province.

As a champion for Planet 21, a Fairmont Hotels & Resorts brand activation for sustainability, Chef jW seeks producers to partner with to help support business owners who source their products through environmentally-conscious practices. Locally, the PEI Lobster Roll Call event serves as a true community building activation for Toronto’s restaurants. Fairmont Royal York welcomes guests to enjoy our Lobster Roll seated amidst our grand lobby lounge, CLOCKWORK Champagne & Cocktails, and in our outdoor garden, CLOCKWORK Terrace

“Lobster is emblematic of a celebration – it’s the rich meal you treat yourself and loved ones with for milestone occasions in your life. We’re excited to bring back our CLOCK Lobster to our CLOCKWORK Champagne & Cocktails menu and we hope this contest helps to promote that joy for PEI’s finest throughout the city long term,” says Chef jW.

In creating the definitive Lobster Roll for Toronto’s distinguished diners, Chef jW upholds simplicity is key. “The ingredients are there to enhance the natural flavours of the North Atlantic lobster. We partner with Chef Marc Thuet of Petite Thuet, a Parisian-style boulangerie, to crown our dish with some of the best brioche buns in the city. We toast the buns with sea salt butter from PEI, then dress with a tabasco aioli made with eggs from Murray's Farm, Hamilton’s only craft butcher shop, and top with chives freshly picked from our rooftop herb garden. The lobster is accompanied by our thick hand-cut fries, which have been very popular with our guests. It’s a great meal that symbolizes the heart of Maritime hospitality – it will put a big smile on your face.”
