As the night was already getting on by the time we arrived... Seriously, it was Connors Road, not my fault! ...okay okay, we were like 30 minutes late but with some calling ahead, Culina was very willing to work with our reservation time to make sure we wouldn't miss it! For that, I have a hearty thank you! But enough distractions, back to the food! Because of the time, we decided to forego the whole appetizers shebang and just dive straight into the entrees. Make sure you don't forget to check out their specials though!
Butter Poached Halibut: Another stunning dish to look at but that's about it. The fish itself is juicy but overdone and tough. The seasoning does give it a little spunk though! Mushrooms - great flavour, loved them; potato hash.. not so much, average more or less! There is a marked wine taste to the dish as well in case you're concerned about that!
Now desserts are always a tasty way to end the evening and tonight, we decided to go with the Pecan Pie (above) and the Cambozola Toast (below). If you're looking for a classical dessert then look no further. A warm pecan pie lined with crunchy pecans and a healthy dollop of ice cream and caramel running down the top awaits! Everything mixes deliciously: it's sweet, it's savoury, it's a traditional dessert that tastes good!
However, if you're feeling a bit more risque, then you can go for the Cambozola toast. It's radically different - for the Cambozola cheese, think blue cheese, and combine that with Dolce de Leche, think caramel, and drunken cherries and you have yourself an insane dish! Salty, sweet, I didn't know what to think then and I still don't know what to think! If you want to try it, go ahead but I also won't blame you for going with the pecan pie -- Both are equally tasty in their own right but I have a feeling more people will like the pie!
The Verdict!: 84/100
