On their third night open, we visited for dinner. They've remodeled from the old Shin design, lightening-up the space considerably. Gone are the dark woods, replaced by light woods and a wood theme in general... but more like pine, not mahogany.
Since it's so new, I'm only going to focus on the hits and allow that the misses will work themselves out.
First, the oysters are deliciously fresh tasting, served nice and cold to great effect. There are three types to choose from.
The next great dish was the poutine. The curds were creamy, and the meat was thankfully not the "smoked meat" you would get in Montreal, for example. Rather, the meat had a smokey flavor, but tasted braised. I wasn't a big fan of Quebecios smoked meat, but I really liked this. Gravy is thoughtfully on the bottom, so the fries don't immediately get soggy.
Clam chowder was thick, chunky and flavorful as I like it.
And for sure save room for the Whoopee Pie dessert. The cake is a decadent devil's food, and the cream is fresh and not overdone.
