The restaurant name and tagline (ÒYou can’t trust a skinny chefÓ) highlight the good humour that chef-owner Jeff Batt brings to his mid-Lonsdale room. The cozy space, epitome of the comfortable neighbourhood bistro, plays host to a lively roster of offerings that mash up ethnic cuisines and carefully sourced ingredients with classic techniques. Service is smooth, wine suggestions made unobtrusively, requests met quickly.
