A fancy restaurant on Queen Street, mainly packed with the financial district crowd enjoying some food after work. We felt so under dress walking in, everyone was mainly in power suits but none the less, they didn't have a dress code so whatever. The place is very simple clean decor.
We started off with the roasted bone marrow. It was served on wooden platter. It was very tasty and perfect with the crispy toast.
For the main, I decided on the seared scallops with kimchi. It was an interesting combination, who ever heard of having kimchi on your plate when you are not in a Korean restaurant. The scallops were quite big and seared nicely. Eating it with the kimchi give it a spicy kick to it. Though for a main dish, it was pretty small portion, definitely not filling enough for the high price.
Still hungry so of course dessert time - a pecan tart with vanilla ice-cream. I love pecan pie so I will be bias here and say it was delicious. This was actually more filling then my main course.
Overall, very satisfying dinner. The ambiance was good, a nice place to have dinner and catch up with friend without having too much noise in the background. But it is a very pricey restaurant and the portions are very small so it all depends on your budget.
