Just last month, Dr. Wine upped the ante of his menu offerings what with the fine occupants of his cellar slowly but surely creeping up in number. With an improved wine list, the obvious place to start was to augment the cheese and cold cut selection. The complementary artisanal sourdough slathered with sea salt butter is divine! Tip: Just look for Dr. Wine’s sommelier for guidance on these pairings.
Chef Julien Lecomte then took it upon himself to add 15 dishes to Dr. Wine’s existing traditional bistro menu. “I've been working at Dr. Wine since day one,” says Lecomte, “and we always want to offer the best value for money and quality products to our guests. We started with a very limited menu, but, step by step, we’ve added items. I'm very proud and happy to present these new dishes.”
Highlights of the menu include never-before-seen salads, like the Mr. Seguin’s Goat Cheese Salad (melted goat cheese toast, walnuts, smoked bacon on top of mixed greens, drizzled in honey and walnut dressing) and the Chicken Delicacy Salad with organic chicken gizzards and liver glazed with port wine, bacon bits dressed in apple cider vinaigrette.
As per chef Lecomte, “The best onion soup in the Metro has to be their La Soupe à L'oignon Gratinée featuring three kinds of onions and topped with perfectly crisped countryside bread croutons and gratinated Gruyère. Also highly recommended is pairing this precious gooey soup with their all new Escargots à la Bourguignonne.
Good news for the vegetarians out there as Dr. Wine was empathetic to their cause: The new Canellonnis à la Truffa, a rich dish of spinach, ricotta, and salsa tartuffa stuffed pasta submerged in a dreamy béchamel sauce and topped with melted goat cheese is a must-try.
