This place was recommended by the waiter at r.tl... A nice touch I thought. It didn't disappoint. It's in Gastown, and there's tons of atmosphere both inside and out.
The service was really great. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The chefs bring the plates to the table themselves and take the time to describe each detail. Pretty cool.
We split the sweetbreads with veal tongue appetizer. This was one of the few homages to the slaughterhouse past on the current menu. Very light and nicely balanced. I had a red snapper dish. I enjoyed it, but it wasn't spectacular. My partner's halibut was light, perfectly prepared, and paired nicely with pasta and other accompaniments.
For dessert we chose pain perdue because the table next to us had ordered it...even better than it looked.
The restaurant was booked the first night we stopped by, but they graciously directed us to other options. We made a reservation for the next night and noted in our conversation that my birthday was coming. :-)
Again... The atmosphere, wonderfully friendly staff, and some original dishes make this a great choice.
