The Registration Building, also housing the restaurant and lounge. We arrived at 5 pm and enjoyed Happy Hour in the lounge. Happy Hour is from 4-6 pm every day and features a house Chardonnay and Cabernet for $5/glass. We're not Chardonnay fans and ordered the Cab. I could tell it was a young cab when the waiter brought the glasses and the bubbles were purple. It was not a good cab.
One of the special appetizers of the night was Tuna Tartare--$15. It was mixed with avocados, watermelon radish, apples and pine nuts. The dish was missing something but when I added a little extra salt, it was much better.
Special soup of the day--lobster bisque for $9. This had a really nice flavor but would've been better with some lobster pieces in it.
Caesar Salad--$10. The lettuce was crispy and the dressing had just a hint of anchovies. The croutons were very tasty.
Penne Pasta with Housemade Italian Sausage, Kale, Cauliflower and Garlic Butter--$18. The pasta was al dente but it was drizzled with Balsamic Vinegar. I'm not sure the vinegar worked with the dish. Also, I couldn't taste the garlic butter.
Steamed PEI Mussels with White Wine, Shallots, Chorizo and Cream--$18. I liked the chorizo flavor with the mussels.
