db Bistro Moderne

Warm, cozy atmosphere and really excellent service at db Bistro Moderne last night. I asked for a wine recommendation and the server brought out a couple samples for me to taste.

I went with a Cabernet Sauvignon, and we started with the Alastian Pâté en Croute with pistachios, raisins and house made pickles, which was so good I maybe filled up a little too much on it, and only made it halfway through my burger . . .

The db Burger looks deceptively small . . . but what it lacks in width it makes up for in height -- stacked tall to include layers of foie gras and black truffle, surrounded by braised short ribs and top sirloin, in a toasted Parmesan and poppy seed bun.

You have to eat it slowly to really savour all the different flavours. And the slower you eat, the faster you realize you are SO FULL.

. . . which is why you only eat half, so that you can also have dessert: a Chocolate Mousse "Tower" -- dark, milk and white chocolate layers with a scoop of raspberry sorbet, and a Forty Creek Canadian Whisky on the side. Again, the dessert may look small but it's really all that you could ever need.
