Verdun is a strange little city. It wants so badly to be cool, and it’s as though it’s ALMOST there, but you need to scratch a little harder at its surface. If you find yourself in that area, or you’re just looking to try a new restaurant, may we suggest Restaurant Wellington? (It’s BYOW!)
You’ve got two options when you eat here– à la carte or table d’hôte. Table d’hôte will run you about $55 (before tax), but you’re not paying wasteful amounts for a bottle of wine! You can also eat off the À la Carte menu if budget is an issue. Either way, you will leave satisfied.
We ordered off the table d’hôte menu, which provided us with a 5-course dinner!
- Amuse-bouche (our bouches were amused)
- Trou de Normand (sorbet with liquer)
- Main Course
- Roll yourself home
The portions are perfectly sized, but the food is very rich, so BEWARE: you will be stuffed when you leave.
The amuse-bouche was a salad of chick peas, arctic char, grilled zucchini (served cold). There was no choice for this course. It was tasty, but not the most memorable part of the evening.
For appetizers, we shared BBQ pork croquettes on a remoulade salad, as well as the beef tartare. The tartare was good, but the croquettes were outstanding!
For the mains, we shared the scallops and the flank steak. The sauces on the scallops had a lot of competing flavours, but overall, the dish was very tasty! The flank steak was a-may-zing. Cooked to perfection– medium-rare and served atop delicious broccoli rabe and mashed potatoes.
When it came to dessert, we chose the brownie, banana concoction, and the lemon tart. We were so full we could barely eat our desserts, but man were they tasty.
Can’t wait to go back and try something else!
