La Chronique Review

It's a pretty place with scarlet walls and black-and-white pictures, but people don't come to Chef Marc De Canck's small, 36-seat restaurant for the ambience or for the crowd; they come, quite simply, for the food. Without fuss or fanfare, De Canck has been cranking out the city's most adventurous dishes ever since he opened in 1995. The man doesn't seem capable of compromise or playing safe. His work seamlessly blends lightened French fare with Japanese, Italian, Chinese, and Creole touches. Starters like roasted scallops might precede milk-fed pig or some sort of duck prepation. Lobster, foie gras, and veal also show up on the menu. This is an excellent place to order the prix-fixe set menu—five courses are C$89.
