Last night my friend took me out to Blacktail Florist, they are located in one of my favourite areas in Vancouver, Gastown. Word from my friend and Vancity Buzz, they are one of the Best New Restaurants in 2014!
Being this was both our first time being here, we held no expectations in what exactly they had to offer. When we stepped into this place, the interior held a very earthy-cozy and welcoming ambiance. All soft wood and candle light, it makes for quite a romantic date spot or a classier night out with friends.
This place had a small yet intriguing menu.
(Chicken liver and bubbles on your oysters? What?!)
For starters and to share for the evening we had:
Traditional Accompaniments, or “Blacktail Style”
Albacore Tuna Crudo
BC Tuna, Pork Belly, Tonnato Sauce
Chicken & Waffles
Duck Liver Mousse, Candy Apple Gel, Hibiscus
Rangeland Bison Tartare
Bison Petite Tender, Spelt Crackers, Truffle Aioli
It was nice that the dishes came out all at once, with beautiful presentations and someone who explained each dish to us at our table. My favourite was the Chicken & Waffles, the liver was creamy and the waffles were oh so good! The candy apple gel was perfect in balancing out the richness of this fun dish. Everything else was creative in it's own way however it didn't stand out to me too much.
As an overall I had a pleasant evening at Blacktail Florist, their service was great! Our waitress was attentive, knowledgable and very friendly! I really appreciated their idea, passionate staff and beautiful food.
