L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel Restaurant Review

: The heavy stone walls, ample interior entryway, wood floors and roaring fireplace are warm and welcoming. Service staff is well trained and professional, which serves to underscore the ambience. The crowds run the gamut from young and suave to businessmen working in the area. French-born chef Éric Gonzalez offers a menu that's artistic, passion-filled, and always appealing: truffled hazelnut artichokes with slow-cooked organic egg, bread and bacon crumbs, and chicken liver mousse; venison tourte with quince vinegar, wild garlic and truffle Chantilly cream; a homemade charcuterie platter; lamb shoulder for one, two or three; and the house specialty braised beef with red wine and bacon potatoes. Worth the splurge, however, are the eight-course tasting menu and the four-course duck tasting menu (mousse, foie gras, confit, and à la presse with Rouennaise sauce) for $95 each. L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel was granted the first alcohol permit in North America, and has a wine cellar that lives up to this fact, meaning that wine pairing is worth it. Desserts include apple pie sold by the inch. “Specialty products" may be ordered for take-out, too, including a variety of charcuterie, 30-day aged beef, grain-fed poultry from the rotisserie, and the restaurant’s original apple tartinade.
