Rosenblum Cellars . I will definitely be bringing a few bottles of this back with me.
"It's dark ruby and purple, and the aroma is like creamy cherry chocolate pie. The taste is crazy. It's a candy bar in a bottle with a little alcohol. Pour it over some ice cream and have some fun. 90,000 points!" - Mark Tarbell, Arizona Republic, Feb. 14, 2007
Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me so I have no pictures of my meal but you can follow this link for a preview of the restaurant and the menu, Bistro by the Tracks . This is the best meal I have had since I left Canada and the restaurant is in a brand new location, in a brand new building. But it has been a favourite neighbourhood restaurant for years. It came highly recommended on Chowhound .
I had two small plates - firstly, a wedge of iceberg lettuce with bleu cheese dressing and secondly, a deboned quail with raspberry glaze on French lentils. They were both wonderful and beautifully presented. For dessert, I had the cheese plate. It featured three generous pieces of imported cheese, marcona almonds , quince paste, green apple slices and crostini. Desiree Chocolate Dessert Wine was perfect.
Did you know that there is a website for Albertans to check availability of liquors and wines? The Liquor, Wines and Spirits directory will tell you if a particular alcohol is available in Alberta and, if so, where you can find it. Handy!
