It was divine, but next time we have poutine we're definitely getting the kind with peppers and onions on top... it looked so good. The food itself was also good, but a little pricey. We probably wouldn't have been satisfied with the small portions if we hadn't also had the poutine. I wanted the roast chicken, brie, red onion and caramelized pears (sans chicken) but the sandwiches were apparently made in advance and couldn't be altered, so I opted for the three cheese (brie, blue cheese, chevre) sandwich. It was good, but small. K got the smoked meat and mustard sandwich on rye bread and it was adorably miniature but had enough meat on it to feed a hungry alligator (or boyfriend).
All-in-all it was a good day. When we were getting ready to leave we realized we probably should have listened more carefully to the parking garage attendant, because the whole place was completely closed down and locked up. We circled the block several times trying to bust in before realizing that we could, in fact, go in the way we came out... if we pushed the little doorbell-style button by the door to be buzzed in. We can be such idiots sometimes. I blame the fact that we couldn't find a bottle of water in the entire city. How do those Canadians stay hydrated???
You know? Just sayin'.

Oh! Also--forgot to mention: K and I went to see SATC2 on Sunday evening and I loved it, of course. He even chuckled a few times. That evening was kind of foiled as well because we went to Monty's Brick Tavern to hear some of the live jazz they advertise as happening on Sunday (4:30-8 pm)... and it was silent in there! Not a sax or a drum set in sight! I was incredibly disappointed, mostly because it just felt wrong to go see the SATC movie without having a cosmopolitan at some point within the same 24 hours. I'm going to have to figure out what went wrong there... because I feel like I've been duped by some seriously false advertising.
Also, not twenty minutes into the movie a crazed looney of a man (I sensed extremely pent-up frustration of some sort) aggressively turned around and told the guy laughing loudly behind him to "Shut the f*ck up!" and stop ruining the movie for everyone. Needless to say, this was not that sort of crowd, and everybody jumped to the defense of the laughing-man, which only angered the looney more. He just kept yelling at the relatively unresponsive laughing-man until his date (that poor, poor woman... I pray they were not seriously involved) got up and dragged him out... but not before he leapt on the laughing man and attempted to punch him in the face.
Needless to say, I was horrified, and thanked my lucky stars for my wonderfully obliging boyfriend. I cannot believe some of the people who walk this planet.
