Knox Fine Dining

For my birthday, Richard and I headed to Knox Fine Dining, a restaurant in Moose Creek, Ontario, about a 15 minute drive from home.

 It's housed in an old Knox church, hence the name.

 The interior still has some its original stained glass windows. Cool.

 Kinda looks like I have a halo over my head, eh? Nah. I was just pondering good food.

 So was Richard. He and I sat on the old church pews, deciding what to eat.

While we waited for our food, we enjoyed our wine with a warm loaf of bread and green olive tapenade.

For appetizers, I had the scallops and shrimp in a chipotle-maple glaze. Wowza. Hot and sweet at the same time.

 Richard had the duck quesadilla with guacamole and fresh salsa.

For mains, Richard chose the chicken entree, stuffed with sundried tomatoes and Oka cheese on a bed of gnocchi and mixed veggies.

 I had the braised lamb shank, in a garlic, tomato, basil sauce on a bed of quinoa and veggies.

For dessert, Richard had the fruit creme brulee.

For dessert, I had a float! Maple ice cream sitting on cold coffee with maple syrup at the bottom. Oh my!

We were stuffed to the gills and loved every second of it. Can't wait to go back and try other things on the menu! It was a very happy birthday!

That is a dream meal!
The veal shank looks scruptious.
How you had room for dessert is beyond me.
I am salivating just looking at it.
