I was recently told that I only say amazing things about restaurants I review. True… however, it’s because those are the ones I focus on. Who wants to eat at restaurants that are not so good?? Not me!! However, one thing I WILL say: I always try to be as honest as possible whether the meal is average, good, delicious or blows everyone else out of the water.
Well, 2 weeks ago, my “Bordelaise” mom was visiting and I decided to take her to Café du Lac, the French bistro located just 5 minutes from my house. Truth be told, I rarely eat there because the menu has always been very heavy and meat focused and I tend to like lighter fare. However, Kathryn, the owner, had invited me to try the new summer menu and introduce us to her new chef, Damon Ulmi. WOW is all I can say. If asked what is the BEST meal I’ve had recently, I would have to say this one. Both my mom (who happens to be an amazing chef herself) and I were blown away by the taste, the creativity, the quality and the overall experience. Ulmi has worked at some of the best restaurants in Toronto (Susur, Trevor Kitchen, Opus) and it shows.
If you are looking to celebrate something special or just experience an amazing meal, try Café du Lac. If you don’t believe me, check out this vlog and I guarantee you will change your mind. Bon Appetit!
Café du Lac is located at 2350 Lake Shore Blvd. West / www.CafeduLac.ca
