Changes at the Chowfind of the Century - Bistrot92 -Dufferin Eglinton

The lunch buffet is no more. It is replaced with a Table d'Hote menu, which changes every few days.
The current one.You are not going to believe it .

All you can eat soup and salad
Parsnip and sweet potato soup
followed by
Beet and goat cheese salad

Main, choice of

Duck breast with orange sauce

Lobster risotto (see prior Judith Gorman post)

Onglet (hanger steak) with sauteed onions
comes with vegetables and rice or potatoes

Dessert
choice of
Caramelized pineapple
Cheesecake

This menu costs $12. Yes $12. That's four courses. And you will think that you are at a good place in Paris.
The chef is defying customers to come despite the unfashionable location. Incidentally, the location as a neighbourhood is actually quite OK and there is ample and cheap Green P parking across the street.

Dinner is now $30 for four courses.
Everything that I have had has been delicious, with the exception of one only OK lunch buffet and a salmon that was cooked in a style that I didn't like. And yes, I have been here lots- daily. It's that good and the cooking style makes daily visits easy. The Chef uses very little butter and currently no dish has cream.

The plates are generous.

Last week's Table d'Hote was only unreasonably good and cheap. This week's is spectacular.
Leek and potato soup

followed by
Green salad

Choice of
Braised beef cheeks
Sole meuniere
Fusilli primavera,
Spaghetti Bolognese

Dessert
choice of
Carmelized pineapple
Strawberries with pepper

Yep, $12 and delicious.

          Yes, the Table d'Hote runs Tuesday to Saturday, lunch only.

        2. With Vinnie's ranting and raving I might have to try this place tomorrow afternoon.
          VV has a knack for finding good places.

          1. Vinnie,

            Guess where we are right now! I hope we are not eating at your table.

                  We just got home at 7:00 pm. The food was very good. Mrs fD really enjoyed herself. I think she wants to go back soon. I'll write a short review in the next few days, and post the pics of what we ate. The summary is that it's worth a visit, it's just a long trip for us.
