This restaurant has been open for two and a half months and has received raving reviews. On my recent birthday, my friend decided to take me there as I had mentioned wishing to try it out. What a good birthday present!
The menu is not the same every day, so what I tell I ate there here may not be the same plates you will encounter when you go there. It all depends on what fresh ingredients they find that day. Therefore the menu is not extensive, but it has several plates for you to choose. They advise for two people to choose five plates and share them and afterwards choose a dessert. So, we did what they suggested, but since we were two famished males, we decided to add one more plate after the five we ordered and then share one dessert. That evening we had: parsnip soup with vanilla cream (hmmmm...), rutabago casserole, beat salad with quail's egg (see the picture I am attaching here), blue cheese with quince jam and flax crackers, agnolotti with chantarel mushrooms, cassoulet with beans, poached egg and fennel. For dessert we had the super delicious carrot cake with salted caramel sauce (the best carrot cake I have ever tasted).
The ambiance is nice, cozy as it only seats 20 people maximum; the music is nice and not loud, so you get to hear your companion without having to shout, the service is excellent as they know their stuff, all the ingredients and take care to attend to any food allergies you may have. By the way, it is all glutten free.
They have also interesting cocktails, wines and after dinner drinks. We just drank the wonderful Vancouver tap water.
The cost? Well, including the 12% obligatory government tax plus tip, two people can eat for about $100.00. Well recommended but make sure to reserve!
