Scaramouche: Quick Review

What a sublime experience I had yesterday evening at Scaramouche with my SO.

To start: duck three ways (the terrine was divine), and calamari in a rich, savoury broth (al dente and so fresh).

Mains: three gorgeous seared scallops on a bed of short-rib risotto (quite possibly the most perfect dish I've experienced) and venison, medium-rare, wrapped in double smoked bacon and accompanied by intensely flavourful and pillowy gnocchi. The meat was perfectly done - soft, tasty but not too gamey.

Dessert: coconut cream pie - a cloud of pastry perfection; and marscarpone tart with honey soaked figs - described (aptly) by our server as 'late summer on the Italian Riviera'.

And to top it off: flawless, professional service from door to table to taxi. I couldn't ask for more.

Best experience in Toronto ever (Susur being second.)
