Fodor's Expert Review Benitz Bistro
Chef Derek Benitz takes advantage of local ingredients to produce classical but contemporary French cuisine. Inside the cozy dining room or on the outdoor patio of this Victorian-style houses, one of many on Somerset Street, you can opt for the four-course Tasting Plate (C$20). The appetizer-size portions might include pimento-dusted wild prawns with corn salsa, seared foie gras on harvest compote, or braised veal medallion with eryngii mushrooms. In fall, herb-crusted Cornish hen is skillet roasted and served with organic mushroom fricasée, fingerling potatoes, and harvest vegetables.
