*NEW* Chilled Potato and Leek Soup “Vichyssoise” with Chive Oil and Crispy Leeks – $5.00

Chilled Potato and Leek Soup “Vichyssoise” with Chive Oil and Crispy Leeks – $5.00

This is served chilled. The potato and olive oil work well together, and the crispy chives add to the bite. This would be great cold or warm. It’s also a good value, as it’s definitely one of the bigger offerings we’ve seen. This was awesome!

*NEW* Chargrilled Bison Ribeye with Creamy Leek Fondue, Roasted Carnival Cauliflower, Romanesco and Port Wine-Goat Cheese Butter – $8.00

Chargrilled Bison Ribeye with Creamy Leek Fondue, Roasted Carnival Cauliflower, Romanesco and Port Wine-Goat Cheese Butter – $8.00

This was another solid offering. The bison was well cooked and tender. Meanwhile, the leek fondue had the consistency of spinach and artichoke dip, but it was really well-flavored. The cauliflower nicely rounded out the dish, leaving us satisfied.

*NEW* Goat Cheese Creamsicle Pop: Goat Cheese Crémeux, Orange Cream, Olive Oil Cake, Cranberry Sauce and Praline – $4.75

Goat Cheese Creamsicle Pop: Goat Cheese Crémeux, Orange Cream, Olive Oil Cake, Cranberry Sauce and Praline – $4.75

Despite the use of “creamsicle,” this wasn’t frozen. It was actually creamy, more like a cheesecake. The goat cheese is subtle at first, but it definitely lingers. This was a great dessert. Each element has a different flavor profile on its own, but all together, it’s amazing.

*NEW* Grilled Vegetable Bruschetta with Marinated Peppers, Zucchini, Squash, Artichokes, Goat Cheese and Balsamic Glaze on Grilled Ciabatta – $5.00

Grilled Vegetable Bruschetta with Marinated Peppers, Zucchini, Squash, Artichokes, Goat Cheese and Balsamic Glaze on Grilled Ciabatta – $5.00

This is served cold over a grilled French bread. The menu says “ciabatta” but this looked like French bread to us. You can taste each flavor in every bite. Although, it could use a dash more of salt. The goat cheese was a great addition and goes perfectly with the vegetables. We would have liked more. The balsamic glaze adds a little touch of sweetness. For $5, this is a great snack to get your loop around the Flower & Garden Festival booths started.

Herb-Crusted Spring Lamb served with Marble Potatoes, Spring Vegetables and Red Wine Butter Sauce – $7.75

This was another winner. The lamb cut easily with the plastic knife, and was seasoned so nicely without it detracting from the really nice meaty flavor. The vegetables and potatoes on the side were prepared very well. They weren’t mushy and were flavored very nicely as well. Overall, this was a really flavorful, superb dish. Meat lovers will want this one especially. This is worth coming back for.

Strawberry Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake with Crème Fraîche Whipped Cream – $4.75

This dessert was very fruit-forward, coming off as tart, but still very good. The cake was very moist, but that wasn’t a bad thing. You could taste the rhubarb, which was subtle and complimented the strawberry nicely. While the white dollop next to the cake might look like ice cream, it’s actually fresh whipped cream. It was delicious! The whole dish was amazing, and rounded out a trio of rather impressive items.

Tomato and Cornbread Panzanella with Burrata Cheese and Fresh Basil

A mixture of extremely fresh ingredients make up this wonderful salad. The cornbread perfectly balances the vinaigrette and the tomatoes. We enjoyed this more than we expected to! The fresh cheese really makes this dish great – it breaks apart on everything and was a nice creamy addition with the strong vinaigrette pairing.

Barbecue Seared Pork Tenderloin with Summer Succotash, Herb Butter and Grapefruit Vinaigrette

The meat was very tender and easy to cut. It’s nicely spiced, but not overly flavored, which is a good thing due to the barbecue sauce being very potent. The sauce tasted like a basic barbecue sauce, but with a little extra vinegar kick. The vegetables in the succotash add a nice texture and lightness to the dish, which were fresh and nicely cooked.

Beverages:

*NEW* Collective Arts Raspberry Lemon Verbena Whole Leaf Steeped Sparkling Hard Tea, Hamilton, Ontario (5.0% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.

From Collective Arts Brewing: “Bright and herbaceous Lemon Verbena and Green Maté are blended with all-natural dried raspberry and butterfly pea flower herbal tea, giving this Sparkling Hard Tea both its mesmerizing purple color and lightly sweet blend of citrus and fruit flavors.⁠”

The first sip of this beverage was extremely tart, to the point that it made our mouths pucker. After letting the ice melt a little bit, this was a really nice lemonade option. The strong notes of hibiscus and the dry gin help balance out the sour lemonade. If you enjoy tropical hibiscus flavors and dry gin, this would be a refreshing choice!
