For a few weeks now a few friends had been talking about this “great” new restaurant that was going to blow my mind and reconsider everything that I once new. It was supposed to be hard to get reservations and I was going to have to call many times to get in…not so much. I called one afternoon and was able to make reservations for that same evening… We got there and yes, the décor is very funky and different. I’ve never been to a restaurant with that type of design where 1800$ paintings are hanging (I guess the price was on the paintings just in case people want to buy them after a few shots of tequila). Speaking of tequila, the drinks that we ordered were delicious, I can’t remember the names but they were very good. The food now…not so much. I went in with very high expectations because everyone had hyped up this restaurant so much that I was eager to start eating. My friend and I ordered the beef tacos with guacamole and sour cream, the French fries and the “Johnny Cakes’ fried chicken. The beef was dry, the tortilla was dry and the guacamole was way to runny. The “Johny Cakes” are basically fried chicken balls on top of a crepe, sounds yummy right? Nope. The chicken was very fatty so much so that I ended up with a pile of fat on the side of my plate, and the crepes were dry. The fries were ok, the taste of garlic was overwhelming but the cheese was good (almost like a poutine less the poutine sauce). For the price that we paid I can tell you that I was extremely disappointed and when I mentioned it to the people that had told me about this restaurant they were surprised and disappointed …because, I came to learn, that none of them had been to the restaurant. Everything they knew about it was thru hearsay. The restaurant looks awesome but the quality of the food did not impress me and is certainly not worth the price.
I would go back for drinks but that is about it, no food for me.
