Probably the most interesting and best meal of this trip was lunch at Play. We tried to get a reservation for Sat night but couldn’t…..instead, we had lunch there the next day.
They have a good lunch deal, 22 CAD for 2 plates. You can even choose 2 plates of mains! The menu is the same throughout the day so I wouldn’t miss out on what they offered during dinner!
Albacore tuna, aioli, beet and truffle oil…. I love the beet sauce!
Octopus with jalapeño, crème fraîche, smoked fingerling and red wine..
Grilled romaine, apricot, onions, cashew and blue cheese…. I’ve never had grilled romaine before but it’s so good…. crisper and has the grilled taste!
Pickerel with vadouvan, harissa, chickpea, coconut, cauliflower…. the fish was tasteless but the crispy fish skin made up for it!
grilled hanger steak with mushrooms, fries and aioli…. the hanger steak was so flavourful!
Linguini with clams, tomato, parmesan broth, prosciutto and fennel… a bit too salty…
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
