horse tartare and other things at batifole

Went to Batifole on Gerrard this Saturday with friends. Everything was very good but the standouts were the horse tartare and beef cheeks with escargots. Since there was a discussion here a while ago about tartare, I thought it was worth mentioning it. The meat was very pleasant, a bit sweet actually, not overly spiced. Came with four different pickled garnishes, and few slices of toasted baguette. The beef cheeks were an appetizer, but quite a generous porton. Meat very tender, in a rich and very robust sauce full of herby spiciness. Delish.

I'm also happy to report that my last few visits there included very good, friendly and competent service. I think the kinks have been worked out, and Batifole is a great neighbourhood restaurant. If only they made their frites thin...
