Gamelle Restaurant Toronto

January 28, 2009

Yuka and I went to the wonderful Gamelle Restaurant last night. It is a few doors down from our house. They had a special chef and menu and it was stellar. I can’t say I like multi course meals, but I’m really happy we experimented. The Granita and Marechal Foch from Sandbanks Estate Winery were the unexpected highlights. I found the duck to be a bit salty, but it worked very well with the squash, which I normally find too sweet. And cheese is now to be eaten with blueberry honey. That’s what I’ve decided.
