*NEW* Spring Onion Soup with Crispy Shallots and Micro Chive – $4.75
This soup is thick and hearty with perfect viscosity. Unlike many onion soups, this one is bursting with different flavors. The soup is robust and complex and doesn’t just taste like onion puree. The crispy shallots and micro chive add some freshness and a great texture.
*NEW* Duck Confit with Carrot Purée, Roasted Root Vegetables, Rainbow Chard and Duck Jus – $7.25
We were pleased to see this was a rather large portion for a festival dish. While a little on the fatty side, the duck was well prepared and packed with flavor. The duck was a little salty, although it complements the carrot puree nicely. Overall, this is a great value.
*NEW* Off the “Beet”en Path: Profiteroles with Red Beet Mousse, Golden Beet Pastry Cream, Whipped Goat Cheese Cream and Candied Walnuts – $5.50
The sweet beet and cream cheese flavors work together wonderfully. The profiterole works as a conveyance for the creamy accompaniment, but other than that we don’t think it adds anything to the dish. The presentation is simple but elegant, with a flower and candied walnuts which add a nice crunch. Overall, we enjoyed these little pastries.
*NEW* Warm Asparagus served with Truffle Vinaigrette, Spring Pea Espuma, Parmesan and Fresh Truffles – $5.25
The asparagus was perfectly cooked. It wasn’t limp, chewy or crunchy. We also enjoyed the seasoning, which was salty without being overpowering. We loved the spring pea espuma (a type of culinary foam) on the side. We would have liked the green garish to be served a bit more broken up, as it was hard to cut or chew up. The grated parmesan was a wonderful added flavor. This was very good, and something we would get again.
*NEW* 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.
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.
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!
The presentation of the cocktail is beautiful. The drink is bright purple and served with an orange slice. The flavors of the whiskey, blood orange, and beets are all there, however nothing really stands out. When mixed altogether, the drink tastes like a nondescript fruit cocktail with just a small hint of whiskey. While we do find this drink to be beautiful, the lack of flavor means it isn’t our favorite.
