Last night I made it out to Mavors as part of the WinterDine Festival, as like anything, it had its ups and downs.
I was kind of excited for Mavors as I had heard good things about their food. I flipped flopped between going to Mavors and going to Lot30, but ended up going to Mavors. I was excited for multiple reasons:
1) They received a nice make over semi-recently.
2) One of our web development clients was asked to be involved in the change over helping critique service and the menu.
Mavor's only had one option so there wasn't any selection decisions.
Caramelized onion, bacon and goat cheese tartlet served with a balsamic reduction
Belly to Back
Braised pork belly and a roasted pork tenderloin with a charred shallot and whiskey glaze, served with a sweet corn succotash and fresh sautéed vegetables
Simple Chocolate and Berries
A dark chocolate pot de crème with minted strawberries served in a brandy snap bowl and Chantilly cream
3 course meal ~$25
First up, similarly to Globe World Flavours was a couple pieces of bread with butter which is always a nice start. The bread was great, but unlike Globe World Flavours, the butter wasn't frozen. It was perfect for spreading and made for a good start.
As usual, I started off with the vegetables which were cooked just right and they fit right in with the rest of the main course. After eating each item separately, I tasted them together and concluded one thing:
Onto the chocolate and berries. It kind of threw me off that the dessert was so simple. But the simplicity of it made the difference. Eating the strawberries and combining them with the chocolate was a good mix. It was a simple dessert with a very much so great taste.
