i had dinner at l’Abattoir this past weekend and fell in love with it. everything from the decor to the food was thoughtfully planned out and executed. do come prepared with a steep wallet people!
i love when restaurants are aesthetically creative with their menu’s
bubbles/ joan raventós rosell cava, penedes, spain ($11)
love their glasses & water jug!
complimentary bread basket-an assortment of french pastries/ brioche roll with bacon bits, sesame crackers, croissant-like bread sticks
how amazing is their bread basket?? and so delicious! what a fantastic way to start off the meal.
dungeness crab and chickpea toast/ toasted brioche, light crab custard, carrot pickles ($13)
everyone at the table savored this dish. we loved the combination of light crab custard and fresh pieces of crabs, but perhaps too creamy for my liking.
pan roasted pacific cod/ pork jowl, creamed corn, basil ($25)
i loved the plating of this dish! every ingredient on the plate was made to perfection including the onions, tomato, pork jowl, and delicious cream corn sauce
steak diane/ charred onions, potato fondant, peppercorn condiment ($27)
the meat was tender and full of flavor. the potatoes were stellar as well
roasted scallop with oxtail dumplings/ beech mushroom, asian pear, spiced jus ($25)
my friend really enjoyed her scallops. the oxtail dumplings were original and tasty with a bit of an asian flare
(upper level) red bricked walls, and lights in a jar – how cute?? there is also a lovely wine bar downstairs
by the end of the night, my friends & i left very impressed with the overall quality of the restaurant. can’t wait to take B here when he visits and try other things on the menu!
