L'Avenue Bistro

Another Groupon adventure: $89 for two 3 course meals and bottle of wine. I'm not a big wine drinker, so unfortunately deal was lost on me.

However, the menu looked really good.

Escargot with garlic, leeks, white wine, cream and toasted brioche
Very yummy escargot in a garlic butter sauce.  It was delicious and not too rich or heavy as a starter.

Beef Bourguignon and frites
The bourguignon had a hint of red wine with super tender beef.  It was nicely done and pretty tasty.
The frites were okay.

Steak and frites
I wasn't a fan of the lemon aioli they had accompanying the fries (so I asked for ketchup). The steak was okay - a little on the tougher side for medium and there was a lot of butter on top making it a tad salty.

Espresso Cheesecake at the top and Pistachio Crème brûlée
The cheesecake was really rich and heavy and probably not the best way to finish off our meal.  
I loved the pistachio crème brûlée! It wasn't the best crème brûlée I've ever had but pretty good with this decadent creme that was saturated with the nutty pistachio flavour.

Overall: It was a nice meal (if a little on the pricier side) and the service was great!
