Au Pied Disappointment

The first time that I went to APDC I ordered the "catch of the day," which happened to be Skate Fish. The fish itself was lovely, but the spinach sauce that was on top of the fish was gritty (to say the least). I chalked it up to someone not thoroughly washing the spinach before using it as a topper, and I went on my merry way.

When a friend suggested we re-visit the restaurant for a second try, I jumped at the opportunity. Since Skate Fish was on the menu again, I decided to give it another go. This time, it was topped with capers...the only problem was that the combination of capers and an extra dose of salt produced enough salt to melt an icy driveway.

After tasting a few other bits of the meals that my friends were eating, we all came to the conclusion that someone had a heavy "salt hand" back in the kitchen that night. From poutine to duck, nearly every item on the table was overly salted.

Needless to say, I was disappointed with my APDC experience twice.
