Le Sélect Bistro
Fashion District, Toronto
A brunch favourite among my friends they insisted I check it out the next time they went.
We were seating in what was a classic french bistro style restaurant, with a quaint and charming atmosphere, unfortunately, I can’t say I felt the same about the staff.
I was told to get the eggs Benedict by my friends but my eyes had found the foie gras on the menu and I was fixated, foie gras for breakfast, it had to be done. Served with french toast, poached pears and a couple of baked eggs it sounded like a rich and satisfying breakfast.
It came out and looked amazing; that foie gras aroma was enlightening. I was a little disappointed by the sizing and the amount it was grilled; overall however it was a great dish with classic pairings for a classy brunch.
One other thing I did note was that I wish is that the foie was served on the bread instead of on the side so that it could soak up the fatty flavours that dripped off.
Overall my breakfast was good although my friend who ordered their Quiche was not as impressed.
