Dinner, last night, was spent with </a></b></a> at Lumière Restaurant. We'd been talking about going for the last few years. If you look at their menus, you'll see why we haven't just up and been already.

Dinner was very nice. They brought out a small dishlette with a fancy intimidating French name. When the waiter was out of earshot, Husband Guy puts one hand up against the side of his mouth to block the soundwaves and says, "... Doughnut holes." XD They're made of croissant pastry, but yes, they were basically doughnut holes =D

You HAVE to try their black olive bread if you go. 'Twas EXCELLENT. The pumpkin seed bread was nice too, but not as pumpkin seedy as the black olive was olivey. =)

I had the Seafood menu, the Husband had the Chef's menu and we shared stuff between us. Neither of us had the wine option. He was driving and I didn't really feel like it.

Most of the food was very flavour packed, which I'm sure is what they were aiming for. It's just that I usually prefer milder. Sometimes, that made things very nice — like the Smoked Salmon Mousse and Albacore Tuna Terrine. But in others, it made it overwhelming to me — like the Oven Roasted Halibut and whatever it was that came with the orzo (oh yes, it was the lobster tail and pan seared scallop). The orzo and sauce nearly took me out.

I'm not quite understanding the point of shaved truffles though. Maybe I need to try black truffle slices, as opposed to white truffle shavings(?) I dunno. I can't see anyone getting "hooked" on something that tastes like nothing.

We were also being silly and laughing at absolutely everything. They gave us very interesting silverware. This is a "fork". This is a "threek". This is a "tuque". And this is an "ankh". I got a very nifty spoon with a notch in the round part. Husband Guy suggested that I tell the waiter it's broken and demand another one XD

We did see Rob Feenie as we were leaving! I did get to say hi, but he was talking to some other people, I didn't want be rude and pounce on him for a picture. He finished his conversation as I was being handed my coat back, so he took off before I could say anything =(

That's alright though. He's looking like it's just about time for a haircut, but he's TERRIBLY CUTE!! =O =D

The door to the top of the stairs that led to the underground parking lot was locked, so we walked around to the back where we parked. The gate was down. But as we got there, another car was driving in, so I stood under the gate in front of the sensor so that it wouldn't close and Husband Guy drove out =D
