A girl’s day out includes a relaxing spa treatment and dinner at La Brasserie on Davie. The catch with La Brasserie is that it doesn’t take reservations, so you have to get there early to secure a table.

Meat of a whole lobster was taken out and cooked in a cream sauce with chanterelle mushrooms, then re-stuffed back to the shell and topped with a green salad. The sauce was creamy and lobster was not fishy, and I liked the crunchiness of the green salad. While this dish was decent, I found it out of place being among others on the menu. This is a much more refined dish compared to burgers, mussels & frites, rotisserie chicken, etc.
