Welcome to my first review hopefully the first of many. Let me say this, these opinions are mine and mine only. All food was/is paid for by my self or wife.
This past Tuesday my wife and I went to Baton Rouge in Oakville for my cousin’s birthday dinner. For those not in the know:
Also stated, “It was founded in Laval, Quebec in 1992. There are 29 Bâton Rouges in Canada as of 2010 mainly in Quebec (Montreal, Quebec City, Sherbrooke) and Ontario (Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa) with sites ranging from 7,000 to 9,000 square feet (840 m2). The first restaurant is located at the Carrefour Laval.”
This was our first time at this establishment. Pricing goes from $14 and up for appetizers and up to $49 for your main course.
Let’s start with the appetizers. My wife got the spinach dip. Now I am usually a fan. But this could be so much more. This was very bland, salt could have been added to bring out the flavours of the spinach and cheeses that were in it. The chips, well they were regular nacho chips. Unsalted and bland. I do not know if they are made in house.
My app was Oysters Rockefeller…
This is only the second time I have had Oysters. The first time I had them raw with hot sauce and they were good. This time also did not disappoint. Laid on a bed of sea salt the lemon, artichoke and cheeses made this divine. Very good indeed.
Next up was our main courses. My wife had one of the steaks as seen below:
Now while I did not try any of her steak, according to my wife it was cooked perfectly. Just they way she likes it. Also it was seasoned well and juicy. The baked potato and veggies really complimented the meat.
My main was the Black Out Burger
Let me say DAMN that was tasty. Juicy beef. Pickled pink onions, for which I was trying to get the recipe but failed, and a whopping slice of grilled halloumi cheese. All inside a bun made black with squid ink. Honestly this may have been one of the best, if not THE best burger I have had. And trust me I have had a lot. The fries however, while salted nicely, left alot to be desired. Maybe garlic salt or something as I compare these to fries that you can get almost anywhere else.
All in all it was a good night. Good food and good company. I will go again and try some different as they had quite a few things to try from but the menu was not over packed with choices. Thanks for reading.
