Poised to be the new hotspot of Queen West, Entice Culinary Lounge opened their doors last month and I got to check out the neon lit bar first hand with Sandi (from Foodaholic). Another attraction of the bar, besides the glasses of red wine, was the countertop of screens playing black and white movies, lighting up each drink. We spent the evening sampling scrumptious bites from the kitchen prepared by Chef Ryan Wilson-Lall and sous Chef Justin Cleva.

From deboned chicken cordon bleu to Korean beef ribs to carbonara ravioli, the menu items we sampled at Entice showed off the wide variety of dishes available. Each bite was also tasty, garnished with detail and consistent. Considering the volume of food being served in the packed dining area, this was an impressive feat. I especially enjoyed the chicken cordon bleu, a dish rarely seen on menus today, that was juicy and tender with a crisp, crunchy exterior.
In addition to savoury items, I also had the chance to try the no bake chocolate biscuit cake and fig and cherry (marzipan mousse with kiwi compote) desserts. While the biscuit cake was dense and rich, the fig and cherry was light and refreshing. Great options for whatever your dessert preference.
Entice offers daily menu specials including crab smash Thursday and family style fish Fridays. A full brunch menu is also available on weekends.
Yay! You were able to captured some nice photos (even in the dark space) ^_^
