Prixe Fix Menu @ Winchester Kitchen and Bar

This post may come late after losing the photos on my own iPhone only to have it sent to me by my friend on his camera 4 months later. I celebrated my 2011 New Year's Eve Dinner at Winchester Kitchen and Bar in Toronto where we managed to make a last minute reservation via Open Table. The restaurant only offered a prixe-fix menu which we all had.

Course #1: Duck and Mushroom Consomme
Mushroom and Duck Consomme
This was Sam's appetizer. The Consomme was too bland for his liking

Course #1: Raviolo
Robin and Jason had this and it wasn't very good. The Raviolo skin was way too tough and chewy

Course #1: Smoked Trout

This was my appetizer course. The Smoked Trout had a nice salty flavor that went well with the Honey Mustard Dressing and Rocket Leaves.

Course # 2: Beef Tenderloin with Foie Gras Terrine
Beef Tenderloin with Foie Gras Terrine
We all had the Beef Tenderloin. The Tenderloin was cooked to a perfect Medium and had a nice charred flavor. The Foie Gras Terrine gave it a richer flavor but Jason felt it should have been served hot instead of cold.

Dessert: Panna Cotta

This was my dessert. The Panna Cotta had a nice light texture and was really good.

Dessert: Chocolate Tart

Robin ordered this. The crust was very dense and tasted almost like a Frozen Store bought dessert.

Dessert: Cheese Cake

This was Sam's dessert. I did not try it because I was too full.
