I’m a fan of foie gras so obviously the restaurant name had caught my eye. I have been wanting to try it for a while and went with friends to try their brunch that they offer from 10am to 3pm on the weekends.
Located in St-Henri on the corner of Atwater and Notre Dame, they took over the location of a previous Belle Province. The place is not very big but the decor with hanging light fixture and a mirror wall gives it a bistro feel to it.
There’s quite a few options on the menu and it made it hard to make a choice. Good thing if you like foie gras is that they offer it as a side just like bacon.
We wanted to try different dishes so we started by splitting some soft boiled egg with ham and cheese mouillette. If you’ve add something similar before you usually just get slice of toast to dip in the egg but this one has the twist of having ham and cheese slice to dip.
That was yummy but splitting it was not enough so I ordered the Eggs Benedict with ham and “crème fleurette” Hollandaise. To make this dish even better I added a side of foie gras to it. The Benedict were really good and so was the foie gras which is not always cooked right and this one had the proper smoothness and tastefulness that you search in foie gras.
I didn’t get to try their diner menu yet, but it looks unpretentious while using pretty good combinaison at the same time.
