Ouf… Sold an entire weekend’s worth of braised pork shoulder in a few hours tonight. We’ll make more soon so you can come and taste
Hi there and thanks for asking a great question!
Here’s the thing:
We’re surrounded by French bakeries on this little strip of Mount Pleasant and from what we can tell, the key to making good croissants involves not only butter but also a special kind of magic that can only be performed before the sun comes up while the rest of the world is asleep. As such, we’ve decided to leave the croissants to the professionals.
However, we do make all of our own bread including a sourdough French loaf, focaccia, pain de mie for sandwiches and burger buns, and sometimes a chocolately dark rye bread. Additionally, we make from scratch things like bacon (pork belly AND peameal!) which while not a croissant, is certainly a reason to get up in the morning:
Wow…Try our cured smoked pork belly !
Need hors d’oeuvres for your next gathering at home? We can help.
Seared duck breast on Belgian endive with orange gastrique and orange ‘caviar’
Oh la la…!
Pan-seared marinated striploin with french fry terrine*.
*Made with love, and duck fat...
Join us for dinner tonight and partake in our $40, three-course prix fixe menu. Choose your favourite dishes from our enitre card, daily specials included!
Tonight we feature:
Sesame crusted tuna loin with mango salad in an Asian-style dressing,
Fresh fillets of European Bass with braised lentils, red pepper & tomato sofrito, sauteéd spinach, and a luscious beurre Nantais.
Start off la soiree with a classic cocktail Sazerac or a French Martini.
Celebrate the weekend with a glass of Kir Royale.
Relax into an elegant chardonnay from Norman Hardie Winery in Prince Edward County, or a one of the few remaining (in Ontario) bottles of Jean Gardiés 2009 Clos des Vignes - an old-vines Grenache/Syrah/Carignan/Mourvèdre blend from a renowned winemaker in south-western France.
While I take a lot of pride in making great selections for our wine list, I find it equally exciting to see what people bring to the restaurant from their cellars at home.
Last week saw a considerable turnout from Burgundy (above are fewer than half of the bottles byob’d over the last week!) including some première cru Beaunes dating back to 1996, and a ‘quasi-vertical’ of D’Angerville which included a 1995 Volnay.
It’s always great to see old friends (many of whom love to share, thanks guys!) and make new ones who share a love of wine, and food! That’s why we’re here, after all!
So whether you’ve got a secret stash or a giant cellar at home, or even just a favourite at the LCBO, bring it and enjoy! And it doesn’t have to be fancy or old or expensive - all that matters is that you like it!
Corkage fees are a mere $20 Monday through Thursday, and $30 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!
A bientot !
It’s family day in Ontario and you’re all invited to our place for dinner! Come by anytime after 5:30!
We’ll be offering tonight’s Valentine’s specials (in addition to our regular menu) on Friday and Saturday as well!
You know… share the love!
We understand that sometimes you just want a taste without all the commitment. Nothing says ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ like remaining coherent through the end of dinner.
Because we love you and want you to be happy, on Valentine’s Day and through the weekend (until we run out) we’re pouring $18 glasses of this killer Champagne from André Clouet! (You’ll never look at Veuve the same way again!)
90 minute wait for pizza delivery, or 90 minutes total to enjoy a 3-course meal at Simple Bistro.
Give us a call if you’re coming later and we’ll wait for you!
