My Take:

The Chestnut Apple Bisque had great flavours, the apple cut into heaviness of the bisque and made it much lighter than a bisque would usually be. The fall salad was colourful with baby carrots, beets, tokyo turnips, fennel, pumpkin and a light citrus tangerine dressing. The  Butter Poached Alaskan Crab was outstanding, one of my favourite dishes of the meal, tender crab easy to take out of shells, delish sauce. Seared Baja Ocean Wise Scallops, loved how the chef matched the light sweet potato purée and figs – yum! The Hand Cut Pasta and Mussels, I loved the texture and flavour of the pasta tubes, and the flavour of the creamy sauce with the mussels was a winning dish, lastly the Pumpkin Creme Brûlée was not only delicious, it actually tasted like pumpkin.
