When dinnerclub rolled around and this month's selector-of-restaurants chose Petite Bill's, I was very excited to have my opportunity.
Understandably, a few people weren't sure what to make of it when I told them I'd be eating that for dinner. I still didn't know how to answer the questions of what was in the poutine. And even though I had looked at the online menu many, many times, I don't know WHY I just didn't read the description.
When we arrived, we all finally learned:
Lobster in shellfish butter & mascarpone cheese sauce over frites
Which wasn't what any of us were guessing, but which sounded the like the best possible choice. And it was. It really, truly was.We shared that to start, as well as the Shellfish Pakoras:
|Indian spiced lobster & carb fritters, cilantro-lime yogurt|
For mains, I ordered the Pecan Burger:
|A vegetarian pecan burger, garlic tahini yogurt, pickled vegetables, springmix salad|
Mo got the best Sea Scallops I had ever seen or tasted which came with a really awesome almond and spinach salad:
|Seared scallops, maple bacon caramel, almond & spinach salad apple vinaigrette|
And Jenn had the Seafood Chowder - with actual mussels in it:
|Creamy chowder, potatoes, shellfish, scallops,fish & mussels|
With room for dessert, we shared the Chili Chocolate Brownie: Gluten & dairy free chocolate brownie - and a type of sponge cake soaked in port with ice cream that I am sad to say is not on the menu at the moment. It was a surprise winner, none of us initially thinking it would be anything spectacular, but ordered it on the recommendation of the server.
