My date and I went here for a Saturday lunch. The decor is modern, bright and playful with odd and amusing artwork throughout the room. The ceiling was made of wavy brushed aluminum and skylights lit the room with natural light.
We were seated promptly and offered bread and drinks. We both opted for some fresh-squeezed OJ which turned out to be Tropicana. The artichoke butter had a pleasant subtle flavour.
We started with acorn squash soup with Quebec cheddar. It had a simple flavour accentuated by some seeds that topped it.
My date had the egg noodle tagliatelle with tomatos baked garlic, leeks, truffled oil and parsley. Although it wasn't very exciting she enjoyed it. It tasted fresh and the individual flavours were very clear.
I had the White Bass with Bok Choy and Shitake mushrooms and Tapico caviar. The bass was crispy and perfectly cooked. The caviar was tasteless. As the soya based sauce had a light taste, the flavour of the bok choy and mushrooms were the dominant ones in the dish.
Desert was lovely. We shared one order of Hot chocolate with homemade marshmellows and chocolate gingerbread cake and one order of lemon mousse on lemon zest custurd with crisp meringue spikes. Both were great but don't expect a full cup of Hot Chocolate. The accompanying sour cherries and candied orange were nice touches.
The service was friendly and attentive. We had a good time. The total bill came to $65 including tax, tip and two OJ's.
