Off to Thuet for dinner tonight, any "must have" dishes I should not miss?
I'd be sure to try the dishes of their seasonal menu- the last time I went was in April, so the seasonal menu has changed. I was happy with a crab dish I ordered off the seasonal menu the last time I went.
I really like the pickerel quenelles I had on my first visit.
I was not a fan of their contemporary " choucroute" from their Classiques menu- it doesn't resemble any choucroute I've had in France. I haven't tried any of the other choices off the Classiques menu.
The Omelette Norwegienne at Thuet was the most beautiful dessert I've ever seen in Toronto- similar to a baked Alaska.The Profiteroles were great, but you only receive 3, if I remember correctly. The Apple Tarte Tatin was also good.
Not much help for your dinner, but I dropped into the bakery 2 weeks ago and they had just started doing take away salads, cured salmon, etc.
Had some roasted cauliflower salad and it was great.
Everything is excellet, for a real treat try the seafood appetizer platter. It is not on the menu, just ask..$100 but worth every penny.
Thanks for the replies. I posted a mini review of our dinner last night on the "SF chowhound last minute trip" thread. I've copied and pasted it here:
I was there for dinner last night and the Kobe bone marrow was fantastic. We also had the steak tartare (very refreshing), the veal liver (delicious and decadent) and the côte de porc charcutière (the pork just melted in your mouth). Service was excellent. We'll be back.
We popped into Lee next door for dessert. I had a craving for the espresso pave and it was a perfect ending for our meal. Who ever said you can't restaurant hop?! The warm chocolate banana cake at Lee was delicious as well but that pave is very dear to my heart! I just love it.
*I'll check out the seafood appetizer plate the next time we're there. Thanks for the tip!
