Last week, the Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts’ highly anticipated Grey Owl restaurant sold out in a matter of hours with menu yet-to-be-seen.
Each year the limited-time fine dining experience features a new menu with unique items that in a lot of cases you simply won’t find at another establishment in our area. This year’s menu was shared online earlier today and I must say if I was on the spot and having to order there might not be enough time in a night to decide on just one full course meal out of all of the unique options they’ll be offering.
You can find the main menu at:
and the dessert menu at:
While I wasn’t fortunate enough to score a reservation, I reserve the right to change my mind but for fun if sitting down for one meal I would go with….
- An appetizer to start of Venesian Carpaccio & Fois Gras
- Sweet Potato Bisque & Birch Syrup Marshmallow
- and for the main event, the Prairie Bison Rib complete with its bourbon, balsamic & dark chocolate glace
- No guarantees I’d be in a position to go any further by dessert but saying ‘no’ to Salted Caramel Chocolate Torte doesn’t seem wise.
