A Restaurant to Remember

March 11, 2011

Depending on how you spent the last decade, a visit to the new Nouveau
may induce flashbacks of forgotten 3 a.m. post-party poutines
with fellas whose names have been lost to the sands of time.

Luckily we had no such associations (wink) when we tried the recently
revamped restaurant. Although the décor remains true to its earlier
incarnation, complete with the original wood paneled tables and vinyl
banquettes, the food couldnt be farther from the fattening late-night
fare. We started with a soul-warming matzoh ball soup ($4.45) before
moving on to an appetizer of fluffy zucchini fritters ($5.95). After
tucking into a rugged dish of Hunters Chicken, with tender thighs
smothered in a savoury tomato and olive sauce and served with a flaky
biscuits ($11.50), we made room to squeeze in an irresistible sweet
potato pie ($3.95) with the flakiest crust wed ever tasted.

We even brought a guy we plan to keep around. My, how weve matured. JN
