Executive Chef Wayne Sych launched his fall menu recently and I was invited to taste some of their new dishes as well try some old favourites. My cousin joined me as we shared some dishes along with some wine.

3rd dish:

4th dish:

Petit Filet Mignon

Petit Filet Mignon (6 oz.) bacon horseradish mashed potatoes, market vegetables and a sweet potato pave, it was perfectly cooked. Added a half Nova Scotia lobster to the dish. We paired both steak dishes with the Kettle Valley Reserve 2010 (BC) Pinot Noir. 

5th dish:

Classic preparation of a New York Striploin (12 oz) with a delicious Half Nova Scotia Lobster with the Truffle Parmesan fries, another winning dish. We paired both steak dishes with the Kettle Valley Reserve 2010 (BC) Pinot Noir.
