Merguez, baked pasta, tomato salad, bread, cherry cake, lemonade from the bistro - $6
I am still in love with the family-style serving.
Diet Coke - $1.25
For dinner, I joined my tweeter girls for an unforgettable night at Auberge Le Saint-Gabriel. Eric Gonzalez is a master chef! And the terrasse is so amazingly relaxing, it's a perfect spot to enjoy a lazy Montreal evening.
A taste of Katerine's fruit juice cocktail
With the amuse and appetizer, we enjoyed a lovely chardonnay (no pic)
Golden dark chocolate sphere filled with a foie gras mousse of sort. Amazingly original.
HUGE platter of mixed seafood for one, including razor clam, oyster, fried calamari, snow crab, a scallop and a giant scampi. (sorry about the shaky pics, it was dark and romanticaly lit in there and I tried my best)
With the entrée, we had a bottle of Aquinas Pinot Noir.
I have to share that we let our waiter Fred decide on the wine all evening long, and his choices were spot-on.
Sweetbreads, peas, pea purée, cromesquis
Pre-dessert: a refreshing shooter filled with a fresh raspberry, vodka, a jelly cube of sort and fruity liquid
I am not very good at describing how delicate and aromatic this was. Summer in a shooter glass.
Mixed dessert plate : lots of good stuff including butter cookies with jam, molten chocolate cake, caramelized bananas, coffee-chocolate lollipops with Bailey's, rapsberry and verbena creams, and some crunchy- caramely sweet thing.
Dinner for one including alcohol and tip was $134.33. And worth every penny.
