We set out to eat dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in the area, but found it had gone out of business. It turned out to be a lucky break for us! Just down the street we stumbled upon this wonderful find. Co-owner Vivianne welcomed us warmly and explained the menu in great detail. Everything but the bread is homemade -- everything! Wonderful ingredients selected and prepared with great care by Vivianne's husband, Didier. The low-and-slow style of cooking produces incredibly juicy, tender meat with wonderful, subtle flavour.
We ordered the delicate, flavourful, thinly-shaved gravlax which was beautifully presented with tiny sprouts. Delicious! One main was a perfectly spiced, juicy duck confit, served with potatoes and carrots. The best we've ever had, and we've eaten lots of dry, over-salted duck confit on the way to this masterpiece. The other main was slow-cooked (young) goat. This is something we'd never tried, and might not bother tasting somewhere else, since we doubt that it could be as tender and delectable in another establishment. We saved enough room for two desserts, a yummy pistachio crème brulé and an equally delicious chocolate pot-au-crème. On top of all this great food, there's also a solid and reasonably priced wine list, and the expertise to recommend the right pairing for any meal.
An experience not to be missed if you enjoy great food made from fresh, quality ingredients. We can't wait to go back.
