Wife's birthday dinner at Nota Bene this monday

After reading BokChoi's reviews (I sure do hope he eats free! If not, I'd like to act as his agent going forward...) I've decided to take my wife here for her birthday dinner. My first thought was Milagro's but it seems to get so-so reviews here, so meh! My wife is Mexican, but I think I'd rather just go to some nice places in Mexico City the next time we're there. Let's be realistic here! PS: If you're ever in Mexico City, I can highly recommend "El Lago" a beautiful restaurant, very high ceilings, unique building, nice areas to walk after dinner, and amazing food. (and like half the price of fine dining in TO)

So I have a few questions before I go.

Espelette Pepper Oil, Chickpeas, Tomato, Basil $27

There's two words they surely made up in there.. What the heck? :) Anyone tried that?

Guajillo Spice, Tomatillo, Lime, Avocado Chutney $22

That sounds pretty mexican.. No mention of it in the other reviews, anyone tried it?

Truffle-Scented Mushroom Bolognese $14


I'll surely try the Charcuterie, because I'm a huge fan of these kinds of foods.. But my wife won't go near bacon or anything "smokey" to save her life. Will ordering that for myself be ridiculous?
