Known as the "Garden of France", the Loire is an enchanting region of
vineyards, flowers and lush rolling hills. Its also the latest addition
to Harbords burgeoning foodie
On a jam-packed opening night, candles flickered and diners indulged as
the rain came pouring down. Our bbq frog legs, oysters and muscles
cooked with chorizo and bell peppers all hit the spot. And for dessert a
hearty-sized warm pear crumble was devoured in minutes.
Owned by childhood friends Jean-Charles Dupoire and Sylvain Brissonnet,
(they both grew up in the Loire Valley) this casual gourmet prides
itself on a seasonal menu that will change week-to-week based on what is
fresh and available.
French food without the attitude.
