Tucked away in Coal Harbour, Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. My friends and I decided to walk over to Showcase Restaurant & Bar, for a chilled night out.
Seared Sturgeon with Fresh Pappardelle, preserved lemon, fennel broth, bok choy. It was bland and so overcooked the texture of the fish was chewy.
TheQueen Charlotte Island Halibut with zucchini, fennel, tomato, fresh basil, lemon. This was also really overcooked but, at least the flavour was there.
The Prime Rib, was thoroughly impressive. The rib was cooked just the way we love it medium rare, juice, succulent oh so good. For $22 for a starter and rib how you can pass it up. We split it between the two of us and were so full we had to pack some of it.
The beef tenderloin with cauliflower purée, blue cheese, asparagus, fingerling potato – $28. The beef tenderloin was nicely cooked but, lacked the wow factor. That being said, we all agreed this dish was over priced for something so average.
We ordered the Local Artisan Cheeses with apple compote, candied walnuts, medjool dates. No one can really screw up on a cheese platter, it was pretty good.
Chocolate Caramel Parfait Chocolate Mousse caramel, vanilla toffee ice cream. This was too sweet for my tastes but, the texture of the mousse was perfect.
