Hi great foodie friends. It’s been sometime since my last blog as life can hop in the way sometimes.
Where did I eat?
Sidecut Modern Steak & Bar
Atmosphere: Westcoast warmth and a balance of contemporary and traditional west coast.
We happened to go to Sidecut located in Whistler at the Four seasons in September. Knowing we were in for a big meal we kept the appies to a minimum and they ended up not really being the star attraction.
What I can say is that they are known for their steaks and coupled with a la cart sides that’s is where the star factor showed up!
Sidecut offers you 1 of 5 choices of seasoning, I chose the Black Angus.
I added the CORN AND JALAPEÑO GRATIN $9. This side dish was out of this world good.
We enjoyed our steaks with a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and the warm fresh bread with Maple butter.
To finish we shared a few sweet treats.
I was very happy to see the…
EVERYONE LOVES LEMON TART 12
meyer lemon, torched meringue
I was impressed with the presentation but honestly that is where the smile ended. If you are going to have a name like Everyone Loves the Lemon Tart – I think you have set the bar of expectations high. I honestly found it to fall flat, it wasn’t what I expected and wasn’t something that you wanted to keep diving into! Normally I love anything lemon or lime and protect my lemon dessert with my life!
All in all a nice time with family, a great steak and sides but a sweet ending that wasn’t satisfying.
All of my opinions are my own and reflect my personal opinions and tastes.
Would I go back? Yes, the steaks and accompaniments were that good. The prices are a little steep but the quality of ingredients shine through.
