Respond to Review of CLOSED: Fressen
Review: of their Sliced shiitake and crimini mushrooms mixed with shredded spinach in cashew cream wrapped in a filo pastry puff. Holy moley. I went there while on a business trip last week and after checking out the reviews on HappyCow. I'm not really sure of why people are so much against the service they experienced, as my hostess/server was very pleasant and chatty. Then again, I brought up that I was from Atlanta and she used to live there, and we had a long chat about it. That being said, though, from the many restaurants I've experienced on business travel, I've always seen that if you're nice to restaurant staff they usually are nice back. I think some of these people who posted reviews here should try it sometime. I had the sliced shiitake and crimini mushrooms filo pastry as noted already and it was to die for. It simply melts in your mouth, and it's swimming in this glorious puree of spinach and cashew cream. I ordered another dish of sweet potato cake and it was good overall. Next time I go to Toronto, I am going back for sure to definitely get some more of that filo pastry dish, but also try lots more on their menu. I loved the menu- it's hard to decide what to get as everything looks so good. It's glorious to go to a restaurant and be able to order anything, and it's not that fake Chinese food stuff. Overall, it's a great experience with amazing food, though be prepared to pay out a little bit as it is pricey. And as they make it from scratch for you, it does take a while for it to come out. But get some bread and you'll be fine. And try the sliced shiitake and crimini mushrooms mixed with shredded spinach in cashew cream wrapped in a filo pastry puff. You'll be dreaming of it too.
