New to the culinary team, Chef de Cuisine Thomas Cruise (taller and more talented than his other namesake) breathes new life into Brasserie Les Saveur’s à la carte and degustation menu with his interpretations of French gastronomy.
Chef Thomas, who grew up in Canada, has been crafting European favourites for over ten years in renowned dining establishments in both Canada and the United Kingdom. His culinary experience includes a stint under the three Michelin-starred chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
Starting the dinner that evening was the Duck Foie Gras as well as the Poached Boston Lobster and Langoustine. The seafood entrée was an interesting creation by the chef. Wrapped into a roulade using mango, the naturally flavourful lobster and langoustine was given a splash of sweetness from the tropical fruit. However, the crowd favourite was still the Duck Foie Gras. The foie gras Au Torchon was buttery and smooth on the palette. The combination of the creamy foie gras on a piece of buttered brioche was divine.
My favourite for the evening was the restaurant’s Lobster Bisque. This soup was just simply marvelous.; It had the perfect consistency and richness. The addition of dill, radish and thym-scented crouton gave this soup an ornamental enhancement.
Chef Thomas’s culinary skills continue to shine through in the main courses like the Grilled Lamb Cutlet and the Brasserie Signature Buttered-Sealed Dover Sole Fillet. This two main courses were deftly executed – the lamb cutlet had the right doneness and had no gamey taste to it while the fish and brown butter combination was incredibly light.
I can’t seem to flaw any of the dishes that evening since everything presented to us was so well executed. I will definitely be coming back to this place to try their other dishes.
