great celebration, poor execution:Robson:
It's based on an admirable concept - homegrown and sustainable.
It's built on a beautiful idea - comfortable and unpretentious.
But it fell a little shy of being all that.
Forage had all the potential to be a brilliant night out. The restaurant has received so much praise from critics and diners so the sister thought it'd be the perfect place for a family night out.
Nothing was terrible but as a family we felt the food fell short. Dish after dish something was always missing...
|Haida Gwaii halibut, ginger squash purée, gnocchi,lamb bacon, spicy heirloom tomatoes $22|
A BEAUTIFUL fish made ugly by overcooking...shame.
|A Thanksgiving special|
(I know...it's November...no excuses for my tardiness except that I'm super busy)
It was missing seasoning - so bland.
If every dish falls short I don't generally feel like I'm missing out on anything if I don't ever go again. I'm that harsh, course the family agreed with me and they're a warm and fuzzy lot. Two ends of the spectrum, same verdict - sorry Forage.
