Valentine's Day in Winnipeg
I've been to Mirlycourtois three times and I've had wonderful service and great food each time, even on a Friday lunch. I think the space is beautiful, the waitstaff take care of you but aren't overbearing, and the overall food has been excellent, except perhaps for a shrimp main I had the last time that was just o.k. The desserts have consistently wowed me.
Mise is on my list, but I haven't been yet (my husband isn't quite the foodie I am), and I'd really like to try the weekend late night dining, which is pretty novel for the Peg.
I'd go for Chez Sophie, though I haven't been there, either. It's on my "to do" list for this summer when I'm home.
Am I (and my mother, and everyone in her lunch group) the only person who has had crappy food at Mirlycourtois? I've only had lunch there, but it was really bad.
If I were home I'd consider Mise, too. It's also on my "to do" list (and has been for the last few years, but I never seem to make it there).
