I've finally gotten around to posting about last Friday night...
We celebrated Denis' big promotion at my cousin Steve's new restaurant Play Food and Wine.
I honestly didn't know what to expect. I heard it was really "interactive" but had no clue what it meant. Now I do and I totally love the concept.
It's unlike traditional dining. You do not choose an appetizer, main course and desert. You basically sample several different items on the many. As many or as few as you choose. We decided to just share everything so we could try a variety of dishes. Everything was SO DELICIOUS. It was a fun way to dine and the place was packed. We will definitely be returning!!! I'd really like to try brunch!!!
Here are some pictures from the evening...
The first dish we tried came from "charcuterie" - apparently having something salty gets your tastebuds going. We had saucisson sec / tomato-ginger ketchup. The ketchup was INSANE!
The bread. We were hoping for a little of the carmelized butter they serve at Beckta - no such luck but it was still good!
An artsy shot of the menu - they update it daily (you can see the date on the top right)...
The view outside - prime location in the market!
onion fritters / tamarind dip (this is one of the side orders)
Another side...frites / aioli
Shot of the menu with the wall colour in the background...
So there you have it.
Our night at Play.
Well, just two more sleeps until our big weekend in Smiths Falls. I am SO LOOKING forward to it. I called Uncle Gil tonight to set up my big date to visit Grandmaman Turpin. Can't wait. I LOVE seeing her.
And I'm soooo looking forward to hanging with my girls, Steph, Katie and my roomie for the weekend Rach. I haven't seen Rach in FOREVER so I think we'll be talking eachother's ears off...AFTER her morning coffee of course! She's bringing the Tassimo so that'll be cool.
