Fodor's Expert Review Le Patriarche
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
A hit with connoisseurs, Le Patriarche serves its entire menu in triplicate. Chef Stephen Roth likes to play with food; he takes one ingredient and presents it in three very different styles, leading guests on an adventure in texture and taste. Whether it's the "symphony of foie gras" or the Québec lamb and caribou, each morsel strives for perfection. Set in a converted 1827 house, the spacious upstairs dining room, intimate main level with comfy chairs and windowside tables, and wine cellar with more than 200 bottles are all romantic and contemporary without feeling forced. Note that dessert is even sweeter when served as a trio. Guests can create their own five-course prix fixe by adding C$28 to their main course selection.
