Ever since Nick and I went to Canlis last year for Restaurant Week, I've been anxiously awaiting the right moment to make reservations. We found out from our waiter that reservations sold out in less than 48 hours and the wait list was currently at 300, lucky for us I am on top of all things food related!
We both had the Canlis salad, I had pappardelle and Nick had the salmon for his entree and for dessert I had the chocolate covered chocolate (molten chocolate cake, cocoa nib shortbread and chocolate covered salted caramel ice cream) and Nick had the rhubarb financier. Our dinner was wonderful (2.5 hours in total) and the service is some of the best I've ever received at a restaurant.
And the chef, Jason Franey, was named one of Food & Wine Magazine's Top New Chefs of 2011. Pretty cool!
I planned on taking pictures of all the food, but someone (me) forgot to charge her camera battery before leaving the house. But I did end up with this picture that I submitted for a Restaurant Week photo contest - I hope I win!
