Closeup of the food options for the night. Couple new items on the menu. Same table, same spot, same waitress; excellent service as always. This time we went early at 5:30pm. I’m still shocked that this event isn’t packed.

Back of the menu.

Dessert always seems to be a must. Same menu as last time; slowly making my way through the list.

Cheval Blanc blanche ($15.00)
DSC09932Perfect amount to share with a bud. From Montreal, so you know it’s going to be good. Lighter bodied, crisp, easy drinking.

Sablefish brandade ($5.00)
DSC09936These were delicious. Packed with sablefish and underneath was an emulsion of potato and leek.

Goose liver sour cherry jelly doughnuts ($5.00)
DSC09937This was an interesting spin that had our tastebuds in a tizzy. The inside was like a pate but with the texture of a mousse. Rich, creamy, lucky the onions helped to balance things out. We thought the dough part was a little too dense/chewy but it was still enjoyable. One of those bites that grows on you.

Duck croquettes ($5.00)
DSC09941The rouille underneath was a red pepper aioli. As excellent as the sablefish.

Wild mushrooms ($10.00)DSC09942Garlic confit bechamél and shaved pecorino. I’ve had this before but Bbops couldn’t resist. Decadently rich and creamy, I was surprised to see that they gave us 5 pieces! Not that I’m complaining.

Capicola ($15.00)
DSC09944Basil mint salsa verde and pickles. Salsa verde is fantastic. Always love getting a board, especially when it’s new.

DSC09946

They cure all their meats in house (which you can see in the back). Interesting that the meat tastes differently when you eat it with the baguette versus without.

Crème brûlée & snickerdoodles ($9.50)
DSC09949Crème brûlée was velvety smooth. Not too rich with a nice crackle. Snickerdoodles had a hint of cinnamon.

Already looking forward to the next one.
