Maggie Oakes

If you’re in the Old Port often enough you’ve probably seen or heard of the William Grey hotel. They have a superb Terrasse in the summer and Cafe Olympico has a counter in the hotel as well.

They also have a very nice restaurant the Maggie Oaks. Their specialty is house cured charcuterie and dry aged steak but the menu also offers other choices. I went during the Happening Gourmand event and got to try some other items that are not regularly on the menu.

For starters I had the Foie Gras Parfait served with a raspberry and port jelly and that mix was exquisite. Since they are a steakhouse I wanted to try their steak so I ordered the New York Strip loin.  The meat was really tender and juicy and served with market vegetables and fingerlings potatoes. It was also cooked the way I asked it to be an art that seems to be lost in lots of restaurants these days. I was told I needed to try the Fondant au Chocolat and there again I was not disappointed. Very rich but perfect for sharing to get rid of the guilt of eating something so decadent.

They’re wine list also offers a good selection and you can find wines for different budgets but still of good quality. They also have a good cocktail selection and a very nice bar to move too after diner.
