Anyone tried that new restaurant in the village? Just read Lesley Chesterman's review and she says it was probably his best meal of the year... It's been open since may and I've absolutely never ever heard of this place?!

Will try soon...

  1. Just ate at Mezcla last night-- birthday dinner for 8 with the tasting menu. It was a fantastic meal. 5 courses + amuse bouche. I want to go back and try a few other things! There was a bit too long of a wait between courses 3, 4, and 5, so the meal lasted 2.5 hours, which was a little slow.

    1. I don't personally know anyone who has been, and I haven't either, but L. Chesterman is not the only review. I've seen lots of reviews online, all very positive.

      But their website has no prices, which bugs me. If anyone has been, I'd be curious to have a ballpark of what I am looking at.

        Tasting menu was $39-- very reasonable. Wine prices are about average- $42+/bottle.

          That is reasonnable. Do they offer à la carte menus as well, or just tasting menus?

          1. re: sweettoothMTL

            A la carte too. But for our party of 8, they would only do tasting menu. And I didn't look at the a la carte menu. but I would go back to try things we didn't get. Only misstep was the overly sweet dessert.

            Tasting menu:

            AMUSE BOUCHE- Duck heart skewer

            CEVICHE WITH LECHE DE TIGRE

            Lime and coriander emulsion – fish – seafood (catch of the day) – yellow potatoes – ají amarillo

            CRISPY SHRIMP

            Crispy giant shrimp – avocado purée – chicha syrup

            ORGANIC CHARLEVOIX BOUDIN & CHORIZO

            Cornbread – jalapeño – apples – hazelnuts – beurre blanc with cider

            BRAISED BISON SHORT RIBS
            Array
            Butternut squash – Kenyan beans – mushrooms – maple and aji panka glaze
