My Take:

Asides from my loving the Hot Smoked Salmon dish, I also loved the Whipped Lemon Ricotta which went so well with the crackers from the Hot Smoked Salmon dish over the croistini that was served with the Ricotta dish. Both the Cured Salmon dish along with the Crab Cake had wonderful flavours. From the 3 main dishes that I tried, my favourite was the perfectly cooked Flat Iron Steak with the salted roasted beets, it was so good. I also loved the Winter Vegetable Stew though I would call it more of a warmed salad than a stew. Both of the desserts were outstanding and both were very different, fitting the season perfectly the Gingerbread Crème Brulee won my heart!

I have been a fan of Chef Jason Vallee’s cooking for quite some time, it is great to see him running this kitchen.
