*NEW* Rillette de Saumon: Salmon Spread with House-made Bread – $5.75

The house-made bread is really good, but more akin to a pastry than bread. It’s nice and flaky, and packed with buttery layers.

The salmon spread has like a tuna salad consistency and while it doesn’t taste like much on its own, with the bread, the whole dish is elevated. This is a really good pairing of flavors, especially for the price.

This makes a good snack for the price of $5.75, and you receive a just enough salmon to pair with the pastry.

Bouchée à la Reine Traditionnelle: Turkey and Mushrooms in a Veloute Cream Sauce served in a Light Puff Pastry – $6.75

Bouchée à la Reine Traditionnelle: Turkey and Mushrooms in a Veloute Cream Sauce served in a Light Puff Pastry – $6.75

In this, turkey and mushrooms in a veloute cream sauce are served in a light puff pastry. This has a hearty interior as the cream sauce pairs well with the turkey, but the outside crust was both flaky in some spots and a little hard in others.

Bûche de Noël au Chocolat “Christmas Log”: Chocolate Cake with Dark Chocolate Caramel Ganache – $4.99

Bûche de Noël au Chocolat “Christmas Log”: Chocolate Cake with Dark Chocolate Caramel Ganache – $4.99

A chocolate cake with dark chocolate caramel ganache, this is a treat fit for any lover of a bitter and sweet taste combination. Dense and rich, the texture only amplifies the dark chocolate. I highly recommend it.

*NEW* Sparkling Rose Veuve Dubarry Cuvée Prestige ($12/bottle) – $6.00

Vivino user David DeBoe says: “Clear, lemon green color with aggressive bubbles. Has an aroma of yuzu, honeysuckle, and for some reason sour cream… High acid, dry, with a medium body.”

*NEW* Syrah, Grand Vallon, Charles Brotte ($16/bottle) – $6.75

Monsieur Touton Selection Ltd. describes the Syrah as having a “pale rose color with slight salmon nuances,” with “intense aromas recalling red fruits – especially red currant [and] raspberry,” and a “light and vivid [mouthfeel] with persistent fruitiness… It is a pleasant and easy drinking wine.”

*NEW* Kir Imperial: Sparkling Wine and Chambord Liqueur ($31/bottle) – $7.00

*NEW* Frozen Hot Chocolate Martini: Grey Goose Vanilla Vodka ($28/bottle) and Chocolate Milk – $10.75

*NEW* Frozen Hot Chocolate Martini: Grey Goose Vanilla Vodka ($28/bottle) and Chocolate Milk – $10.75

This martini looks stunning and is perfect for a festive and elegant Instagram post.

However, the martini is just fine at best. It just tastes like frozen chocolate milk served in a fancy glass.

We couldn’t taste any of the vodka in this drink. Even down in the bottom of the glass, it lacked any trace of alcohol.
