|The food menu - I was told starting in January 2015, lunch will be served as well.|
We tasted the following food samples:
1) beef tartare on crostini
2) lobster roll
3) poutine with veal and beef gravy
4) shrimp cocktail (served in a shot glass)
5) oysters served with horseradish, lemons and seasonal mignonette
6) smoked salmon crostini

I have to say, every food sample were top notch. Interesting ingredients gave the food menu a unique flavour different from other restaurants. "MoVernie MUST TRY" would be the oysters, shrimp cocktail and veal and beef gravy poutine (gravy was to die for).
Next time, I would love to try its entree menu. From a glance, the price was very reasonable. An item such as mac n cheese was $16, trout was $22 and rib eye steak and fries was $28. At a beautiful place like this, the prices were very attractive. One item I really want to try next time is the fried quail and bacon pancake, very interesting combo mix. I had roasted quail before but not sure how fried quail or bacon pancake or whisky infused maple syrup taste like. This whole combo intrigues me. I guess that means....I will have to visit often. LOL
Overall, this is definitely going to be a hotspot. In particular, I could see the young professional, financial district people (from nearby) ranging from the bankers to lawyers would see this as their new hotspot. It's a great place and I can't wait to see the actual sexy burlesque dancer performance, while sipping a nice glass of whisky.
MoVernie Fun Fact: Did you know recent top notch whisky was made from Japan? Not going to lie, If James (one of the whisky experts) didn't tell me, I wouldn't know Japan makes whisky and are good at it. In fact, lots of patrons who know their shit have been ordering the Japanese Whisky at the CC Lounge that they have to order more. Fun fact indeed!
Until next time, MoVernie is outta here! Peace!
