|Eggplant Chevre Macaron|
David started with Parsnip Soup; brown butter panne cotta and liquid parsley were presented in a bowl and parsnip milk was poured over top. Fantastic presentation and equally good taste.
|Not Just Like Fish & Chips|
I couldn’t resist the Just Like Fish and Chips. I consider myself a fair judge of F&C and this wasn’t like anything I’d had before. Completely deconstructed, the fish was thin slices of a Japanese white fish, seared rare, with batter pieces on the side and paper thin potato crisps with frisee and tartar sauce. I wouldn’t order it again but it was interesting. David had the Roasted Butternut Squash with crème fraiche, walnut crumble, grapes and bread crisps. A very pretty dish but I was surprised by the cold squash and not a fan.
|Cod & Zuccini Carbonara|
I loved the Norwegian Cod, with crispy skin served on zucchini carbonara, sea urchin cream and white wine. Wow! Richness made light by the zucchini replacing the pasta. We also had Truffle gnocchi with broccoli puree, crispy buckwheat, roasted cipollini onions and grilled garlic oil. Both main courses were outstanding.
|Chocolate Club House|
I recommend Chez L’Epicier unreservedly and wish Chef Godbout good luck in 2015.
