Very nice restaurant in a beautiful old house that has somehow survived the urban development south of the 401. We asked about the possibility of having a tasting menu with paired wines since this was not on the menu and were told that the chef would be happy to do it. We were in for a great experience. Now this is not the place to come for creative fireworks and the most recent culinary trends. But the cooking is solidly rooted in classical French cooking and is delicious. Delicate foie gras mousse terrine with aonori genoise served with a Pinot Gris late harvest from Alsace; succulent shrimp with tasty fried green tomatoes, chutney, and aioli served with a Sancerre; roasted halibut with snow crab brandade and vegetables with a Pouilly-Fuissé; and an absolutely amazing sous vide and seared veal loin, sweetbreads, peas and carrots served with a J. Lohr Pinot Noir that seemed more like a Merlot than a Pinot and was just OK with the dish; for dessert a chocolate sesame ganache with sesame tuile and a sorbet whose flavor I forget, very good, served with an excellent Greek sweet wine from Patras, kind of like a Port but with more earthy tones. Overall, an excellent meal in a beautiful setting with good service.
