Chef Bradford Ellis invited me in recently for dinner to taste some of his new dishes! Some of the dishes were new additions for his spring menu and others were old favourites.
Palpette Granchio (crab & candied salmon cakes)
Salsicce pizza $16
Ravioli Piedmontese $25
Tagliatelle Arragosta $28
Branzino (pacific sablefish) $34 with lemon olive oil, tomato olive tapanede, capers, warm panzanella
Pesce – (tilapia fillet) – with Israeli couscous and lemon brown butter
Chocolate Hazelnut Torte $9 – dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla gelato
Q4 Napolean $9 – sweet cherry compote, vanilla scented whipped Marscapone, caramelized phyllo pastry
A friend dined with me, we shared all the dishes except for the mains where she had the Sablefish and I had the Tilapia.
Each dish was well presented and all were good. I have dined at Q4 Restaurant on a few occasions previously, see one of my previous visits here. We both loved the Salsicce pizza; both pasta dishes were delish including the Ravioli Piedmontese as well as the Tagliatelle Arragosta, my dining companion enjoyed the sablefish which was perfectly cooked and well presented. I loved the Israelli cous cous accompaniment that went so well with the fish. The Q4 Napolean was the standout dessert and one that I order often.
