What I tried:
Foie Gras Poutine and Chicken Liver Mousse
Service was impeccable. I was 30 minutes late due to traffic and they accommodated me no problem.
The food lived up to it's hype.
The location and feel of the restaurant was great.
If you are not a fan of foie gras then this is not the place for you as literally everything is topped with this gourmet ingredient.
Easily very pricey for the portion you receive. This is a great stop if you are looking to shock and test your palate.
Duck in a Can
Maple Crème Brulee
Foie Gras Poutine
Literally as you finish the last slice of bread and butter you receive as an appetizer, it gets magically filled again. Great service.
I felt like I needed to run a marathon after eating here as everything was extremely rich and heavy.
Best quality foie gras yet.
You see literally anyone from tourist to children. Casual yet sophisticated.
The place smelled like stew on a Sunday evening at home.
I would definitely go back there with more people willing to try more things. A lot of shareable plates that I could not try as I was with my unadventurous brother.
