Le Cercle Restaurant Review: More than just a restaurant in a cultural quarter, Le Cercle encourages its patrons to eat, drink and participate in the spirit of old-time European coffeehouses. The restaurant features group and à la carte lunches, dinners and brunches. We suggest the "Picnic" starter of charcuterie, cheese and pickled vegetables, but you can't go wrong with the foie gras. Or try the six-course tasting menu that starts with oysters, moves on to foie gras, sweetbreads with gnocchi and chanterelle mushrooms, gilds the lily with bison and ends with soft, rich Riopelle cheese and dessert. If you're good at sharing, the dishes for two are also worthwhile: a half duck served with foie gras and maple gastrique, a seafood platter or an enormous pork chop with tomato gremolata and roasted piglet belly. Le Cercle is also a unique concept where on-the-edge cultural events take place alongside a unique dining experience. And the restaurant offers a selection of imported wines.
