This is a hip bar/dinner place, great for a drink with a few friends. The evening I went, I was with 30 of my closest friends at a weekly get-together, and I was surprised to find a poutine on the menu among the pastas and other plates. The poutine I got was based on sweet potato fries (regular fries also available), a beef gravy and grated mozzarella. It should be said that this correspondent is not a fan of grated cheese on poutine; it tends to melt completely and become incorporated into the sauce, and that happened here. The cheese has to be its own distinct component (why not break up a buffalo mozarrella on top instead?) However, once you dig way into the pile, is where the poutine gets good: the formidable gravy and sweet fries plow together fantastically, and the plate has a delicious distinctive taste you will come back for.
