Richmond Station Restaurant Review

: Richmond Station, owned by "Top Chef Canada" winner Carl Heinrich, is a mix of diner atmosphere and distinguished dishes. Simply decorated with pristine white walls and large artwork, the restaurant is classy but casual. Tables may be huddled a bit too close together, adding to noise levels, and service might lack the finer points of making guests feel warm and welcome; however, the food is striking, and, most importantly, interesting and utterly tasty. Rainbow trout is served crispy and skin-side up; it's surprisingly bold with toasted almonds and lemon marmalade. There's also a seasonally-changing pasta dish, which might be mushroom agnolotti involving truffle goat cheese. Both items are completely balanced without shying away from pronounced flavors. The menu changes with the seasons, but there are a few constants, such as a charcuterie board of expertly prepared, house-made meats and fresh, crusty bread. The Station burger is another favorite. Dessert is necessary and worth visiting Richmond Station for alone. Chef Farzam Fallah’s creations are unique and vibrant in color, texture and taste. The "Peanut Butter Vibe," for example, consists of creamy peanut mousse, supple Concord grape jelly cubes, tart currant sorbet and peanut-Skor candy.
