Recently I reconnected with a dear old friend, whom I haven’t seen for years. We made plans to go for dinner, and since she is new to the city I chose the place to eat. I knew we’d be doing a lot of catching up, and I knew we’d be enjoying a glass of wine two. I wanted to dine at a restaurant that is sweet, quaint, comfortable, and a good menu of course. Well, Abigail’s Party is that place, a perfect mix of cozy and fancy, it’s the kind of place to wear your new silk blouse and skinnies while holding a glass of wine, and reconnecting with an old friend,catching up for hours over what has happened over the last six years.
Appetizers were necessary, since we knew we had so much to talk about, we definitely wanted to pace ourselves. These amazing deep-fried pickles and the moroccan-spiced mixed nuts were the perfect starters to the evening, and between sips of wine and the “really, you did that?” and the “wow, nothing has changed!” they were perfect!
…and the main courses, presented by chef Graham, the Coq Au Vin and the Duck. We rated these quite high, though I had a taste of Leanne’s duck and I think the Coq Au Vin is the way to go, it was quite delicious.
Duck Confit: Yarrow Meadows duck leg confit, roasted fingerling potatoes, caramelized onions, crispy brussel sprouts, grainy mustard sauce.
Coq au Vin - Maple Hills chicken, red wine, thyme, fingerling potatoes, green beans, kalamata olives.
chocolate mousse? Absolutely.
I loved seeing Leanne, it has been way too long! We had a great time at Abigail’s Party, and it was so convenient to book a reservation online using opentable, I truly recommend visiting this restaurant – look at the menu here, and make a reservation here.Pin It
