Enjoyed a wonderful night at this fine dining restaurant that has one of the best views in the city.
Started off with a couple of their exceptional cocktails, the Starry Night that’s foamed at the table and quickly turns to smoke making for a very cool experience; along with the 1605 julep that also features smoke under the lid; another cocktail to love.
We had the Tasting Menu with its multiple courses, starting off …..
Gougere – duck liver parfait
Crab salad on crispy nori
Spot Prawn Toast that was my favourite with panko, brioche and caviar
Tomato tart with burnt onion
paired with the Frind Winery Brut (Okanagan Valley, BC)
Asparagus with spring pea puree, egg yolk gel, parma ham, toasted almond, red wine vinaigrette
Also paired with the Brut
Sea Bream Crudo cured in-house with a lovely coconut calamansi, avocado crema, grapefruit, latik
paired with Trimbach Riesling 2020, France
Sea Bass with fennel, Summer succotash, corn espuma
Paired with Little Engine Wines Sauvignon Blanc (Naramata Bench, BC)
Fraser Valley duck, kromskies, pink apple puree
Paired with the Foxtrot Vineyards Pinot Noir (Naramata Bench, BC)
Rhubarb Pavlova with rhubarb jam, mascarpone cream, almond crumble, figs, rhubarb-vanilla reduction
The service is as spot on as the impeccable Tasting Menu that changes seasonally.
