I had dinner there Thursday night. It was a beautiful night and they had the windows along Mont-Royal open.

My wife and I shared an appetizer of brie wrapped in shredded phylo dough which was pretty good. I had the chicken with a curry coconut sauce. The sauce was sweet and spicy and very good. My wife had the duck confit with raisins which also was very good.

Both my stepdaughters got the steak frites, which came with a generous helping of fries. Since they didnt' finish them I felt like I had to sample some of those potatoes. Let me say... these were the best fries I've had anywhere. They were a dark brown with a zesty spice to them that wasn't overwhelming.

I mentioned to the waitress how great I thought they were and she told me that it was a new recipe and that she basically has some every night that she comes in.

Also the chocolate flourless cake and the chocolate banana cake were both excellent.
