|Pan roasted lamb t-bone|
|Crispy fennel pork belly|
The pan roasted lamb t-bone with goat cheese crusted vegetable gratin consisted of two very small portions of lamb the size of my hoof. Although they were moist and juicy, there was far too little meat, consisting of roughly 1/3 of each bone, meat, and fat, leaving me longing for more substance.
The phyllo wrapped camembert with Saskatoon jam and toasted baguette was fairly standard and similar to other restaurants. The camembert was nice and melty on the inside, but nothing spectacular or different than others we’d tasted previously. The crispy fennel pork belly with tomato jam, cauliflowers puree and natural jus was my favorite of the night. The pork belly was crispy yet melt in your mouth, while the cauliflower puree was unfortunately bland and could have been omitted from the dish.
We end our visit with their chocolate marquis, consisting of a very thick, dark chocolate mousse and candied almonds. The almonds are too hard to bite into, but the mousse is delectable, not too sweet or dense, and thoroughly enjoyed. However, we leave the restaurant with an almost 3 figure bill, and still feeling hungry.
Despite the fact that the menu has changed since our visit, the uncomfortable furniture, mediocre food, small portions, and high prices, leave us with no desire to return.
