Fairmount Bagels are to die for. I bought 18 and smuggled them back to Toronto. I don't think I've ever bought $14 worth of bagels. But ooooh so worth it.
At Buvette Chez Simone a lovely wine bar on du Parc. I ordered half (my alcohol tolerance is laughable) a glass of Beaujolais red--because I love its fruity notes. Minh ordered a glass of white, in which its name has left my poor memory. It was surprisingly crisp and not dry at all.
We ordered a salad to share (which you cannot see because the photo turned out blurry). The salad had eggplant (my fave!!), argula and boccocncini drizzled in an aged balasmic vinegar dressing. And fresh bread to mop up the juices!
