How lucky to celebrate Mother’s Day at Play Food & Wine at 1 York Street in the Byward Market. All 4 of us opted for their Two Plates for $20 special. It worked perfectly! Well, except for the fact that we had no room for dessert.
Our server was very attentive, always keeping us in coffee and water. Enough to fill a bathtub! I am going to be awake until Tuesday!
BC halibut / king eryngii / grilled scallion / fiddlehead pesto [picture missing]
Verdict: “They were both fantastic dishes. This was the best Mother’s Day celebration ever!” High praise from someone who has been eating for 80 years.
Verdict: “Loved both dishes but the pasta edged out.”
Verdict: “So filling. Barely finished. Both were great. The winner was the benedict.”
grilled hanger steak / mushrooms / frites / aioli [same as pictured above]
Verdict: “Loved the rhubarb compote. Mom, I like your pancakes better. The steak was my favourite.”
