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. The menu has offered dishes such as scallops with brown butter cauliflower, sea lettuce and hazelnut oil; foie gras with maple jus and beet tatin; a homemade charcuterie platter; and spit-roasted suckling pig upon special request for a minimum of eight people (the spit-fired Cornish hen with garlic and thyme jus doesn't require a reservation). Worth the splurge, however, is the seven-course tasting menu. 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 the wine pairing is justified. Desserts include a vanilla vacherin cake with layers of meringue, raspberry sorbet and ice cream, and lemon shortbread with lemon cream, verbena jelly and meringue petals. 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.
