{ STYLE } Take Me to Paris

After my experience last night at P'tite Ardoise Bistro, I'm even more determined to visit the City of Love one day. For now, I'll just have to imagine what it will be like- seeing all the beautiful monuments, visiting little cafes and bakeries, eating escargots and nomming on pretty macaroons.

So last night was my bf's birthday dinner. I wanted to take him to P'tite Ardoise after all the amazing reviews I read on Urbanspoon. Already upon approaching the restaurant, we were greeted with the cutest little set up! The atmosphere overall was really great. Even though the restaurant is really quite small and squished, the staff and food really make up for it.

This place is really authentic yet modern at the same time. From the French-speaking staff and decor, I really felt I was in Parisian bistro but once the food came out, I was amazed at how perfectly presented it was. Really a true fine dining experience!

Entree of Escargots & Duck Liver Pate - not the typical escargot covered with garlic oil that I'm so used to. Instead, they were immersed in a creamy garlic tomato-y sauce and topped with a crusty bread. So delicious and flavoursome!!

My main of Filet Mignon- WA Beef tenderloin wrapped in streaky bacon, fondant potato, shiraz jus and bearnaise - the beef was cooked medium rare which was just to my liking and how I think beef should be cooked. It was so tender and juicy! The potatoes were okay. They were cooked well and not to mushy. The bearnaise had a nice tangy punch to it. Overall a really impressive dish.

 His main of Tournedo Rossini- WA Beef tenderloin, foie gras, mushroom duxella, red wine jus served on mashed potato - how pretty is this plating! a really rich and indulgent dish with the creamy mash and the foie gras. I tried a bit and it was really tasty! I think he liked it too since he finished the whole plate : )

By this time, we were stuffed but couldn't pass up on dessert. Everyone's been raving about their Creme Brulee and they were not kidding! One of the best creme brulees I've ever tried- it was super creamy and smooth and the sugary goodness on top...omg. Just delicious. The Eiffel Tower shortbread tasted average but it really made the dish a lot more special.

And...here's my OOTN! Super obsessed with this skirt from Beginning Boutique.
