This was my favourite meal shared with friends over the holidays in Montreal, and I’ve been craving it ever since. And since it’s Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), why not do something slightly French that celebrates one of the most delicious fats of them all: duck fat!
Fresh duck legs, seared until crispy, and then braised in thyme-spiked stock over a mix of aromatic vegetables: onions, celery, carrots, celeriac, sweet potato, etc. Served with a red “Fergus Salad” of purple cabbage, julienned raw beets, red onion, chervil, capers & creme fraiche and a wedge of baguette.
$14 (sorry, but duck legs ain’t cheap folks)
#GF #vegan option of seared portobello mushroom over veggies $12
Also: Fresh Pie from the wood ovens of Dufferin Grove Park! $4
Add organic vanilla ice cream +$2
