Delicate, fresh, elegant and sublime are the best ways to describe my dinner at Fish la Boissonnerie. This fish-geared restaurant offers elegant and petit dishes in a colorful, fun but sophisticated setting.
To start, our waiter brought out a crostini with fish broth. The fish broth had an interesting flavor but wasn’t too potent, and the crostini paired well with it.
I ordered the saumon gravelax a la betterave, gel de sarriete (or salmon gravelax with beetroot and savory gel) as my appetizer. This dish was refreshing and the salmon tasted incredibly fresh, and the presentation was impressive.
I chose the cabillaud, pousses de soja, pois gourmands, bouillon de champignons (or cod, soybean shoots, peas, mushroom broth) as my entree. The waiter said one of the items in this dish was a delicacy, but it’s just cod and vegetables so I’m not sure what the delicacy was suppose to be. The cod was light and flaky, so it was cooked perfectly. The mushroom broth was also very nice, and didn’t taste too strongly of mushrooms – something that was good for my friend Lindsay because she doesn’t care for them. The soybeans shoots added a nice crunch, as well. This dish was overall very good, however it wasn’t life-changing.
If you enjoy seafood, I’d recommend dining at Fish la Boissonnerie. Make sure you make a reservation, though, because it was very busy and we were lucky to get a seat.
