We had dinner out of the house tonight. Having missed Adam’s birthday celebrations on Friday while we were watching a man roll about on stage, with varied music (contemporary dance solo) then dinner on Saturday (Adam and Kevin fell asleep) we arranged at short notice to go out for dinner tonight.
The Venue: Jules Bistro, on Spadina, just North East of Richmond intersection. Dan and I caught the train West, then a streetcar South from Spadina. The restaurant has a lovely ambience; a mixture of recycled chandeliers and lighting fixtures, hand-written text on the walls. I contemplated having the rack of lamb (for 2) or the duck breast (for two) but they were out of duck! Kevin and Adam ordered the rack of lamb; I requested a quiche lorraine and Dan ordered a chicken and chips (poulet et frites). The waitress bought Kevin and Adam’s French onion soup, but no spoons. It was 45 minutes until my food arrived. I’d drunk a whole glass of red wine by then, which made for a lively table conversation. My quiche was burnt but I was fascinated by the Laguioulle cutlery (I still need to source some or get it sent from Australia).
