Nectar Restaurant Review

: How sweet it is! Nestled in Mount Lookout, Nectar tries to live up to its name. Big picture windows, muted colors, wooden tables and scattered wall sconces set an uncluttered, minimalist scene. Chef-owner Julie Francis delivers contemporary French and Mediterranean dishes using local and organic ingredients when possible. We like to start with the falafel and Mediterranean dips (with hummus, pickled vegetables, feta, chile paste, mashed fava beans and olive oil cracker bread). Other appetizers include an organic kale Caesar salad, a shrimp and kimchi pancake or lamb skewers. Sweet potato gnocchi is tasty with its blend of shiitake mushrooms, pancetta and sun-dried tomato mascarpone. We also favor the beef flank steak stir-fry that comes with a little heat (Japanese hot sauce) and tastes of onion, fennel and lemon grass. Almond poppy seed cake with lemon curd and hibiscus glaze is a tempting dessert option. Or, for something more unusual, try the chai donuts with fruit salad and pineapple-saffron sorbet.
