Kingston Eats: Le Chien Noir Bistro

✣ Top pick ✣

This is one of my favourite restaurants in downtown (other will be Aquaterra.  I highly appreciate the fact they use high quality seasonal local product, I am a big supporter to buy local (better for environment and reduce carbon footprint).  Food is very rich here, but it’s worth every bite.  Very very very tasty food (alright it’s French bistro food!!) 🙂 Don’t miss out their poutine, it’s one of the best poutines I’ve had 🙂 (Actually the best I’ve had so far. I have yet to try the poutine in old Montreal)

℘ Le Chien Noir is a member of “Local Food Local Chef”, a Kingston initiative to promote the area as a destination of culinary tourism.

℘ Sister restaurants with Atomica & Harper’s.

“Lyon’s Farm” smoked turkey, “Pingue” Niagara proscuitto, compté cheese, egg battered grilled sourdough.
‘Patchwork Gardens’ Green Salad
Local organic baby lettuces, crushed hazelnuts, chèvre, blackberry-thyme vinaigrette.
I don’t like French toast, but Le Chien Noir changed my mind on very well-made French toast (as opposed to greasy soggy toast).  It’s amazing how the three sister restaurants made me change my attitude towards certain food dishes that I don’t particularly like.

1010 Poutine (Le Chien Noir)Poutine
Frites, shredded duck confit, Québec triple cream brie, green peppercorn & congnac jus.
It’s pure heaven, and I don’t say this unless it’s really out of the world.
