I'm surprised no one started this topic yet!

This place is definitely the most unique in Charlottetown. Part deli, part restaurant, wholly delicious. The front section sells cured meats, breads, chocolates, desserts, gelato, preserves, etc., and the back is the restaurant section. It has a really nice feel, a real bistro setting.

Beef carpaccio was amazing. I could eat tonnes of that stuff on my own! Was pretty simple, had a light balsamic sprinkling and a couple shaves of parm. Duck breast and fois gras. Enough said. Perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked. The wine selection isn't huge, but suits the menu.

The service was great, even for a brand new place. No complaints there.

I sincerely hope this place does well. It's definitely a new favourite.

I've been looking forward to checking this place out. Wanted to go for brunch last Sunday but they weren't open yet. Will post a review when I have the chance to try it.

We got a taste of their wares at the Beef n' Blues Fall Flavours event in Summerside. Of all the dishes from all the restaurants at the event, their sampler was by far our favourite.

We only noticed it a couple of days ago (despite practically living across the street from it) and as soon as Mrs. K gets over her nasty cold, we are going to venture over.

Sorry to hear the main K is sick. It is a nasty one.

Won't ever set foot in the place. I know the owner well - and some of his practices - I'd rather eat dog food.

Sorry to be so blunt.

Beside the olive oil store on Queen.

This place was pretty busy last night. I stopped in to grab one of the chicken salad sandwiches. I thought it was pricey ($8.02) and a bit on the small side, but it was loaded with chicken salad and it was quite good. Looks like a nice little spot.

Watching the owner (I am guessing it was, it was an employee at the very least) handle cash and serve customers without washing his hands or using gloves is enough to make me not want to eat there.

That's all I need to know, Wynston, to say "thanks, but no thanks!"

Geez. You must never eat out if that's the case!

If he did stop and wash his hands they would be complaining that it took too long.

If you're handling cash, one of the dirtiest things you could possibly handle on a regular basis, then you should wash your hands before preparing food, simple as that. When I eat at a restaurant I don't expect the line cooks/chefs to be handling cash so all is good. Look at subway for instance, gloves on to make the food, gloves off when handling cash, simple, quick, and I like it. If you're happy having your food prepared that way than fill your boots, I will steer clear of it and I am sure others will as well.

No one should be handling cash and then preparing food without washing their hands or putting on gloves, it is just disguisting! That is the reason Wendy's and McDonald's have a window just for cash, Harvey's & Subway's employees always use gloves.

Went to Terre Rouge for dessert on Saturday night. Thought it was a great little spot. Had some sort of apple tart dessert. It was fantastic tasting dish but quite small. I have a rather large appetite so it's probably not a spot I would got back too if I was hungry. The menu is written on the wall. While it is unique and helps pass the time it is quite awkward if your not sitting where you can read the whole thing. You need to stand up and stare over peoples head's to read it. I think a normal menu would be nice addition.

2 Desserts, 1 Beer, 1 Coffee came to $29. Great little spot just a little expensive for my taste.

Jeepers, what desserts did you get? That seems very pricey.

So what exactly was being prepared with unwashed hands? I've been in a few times to pick up meats/cheese, and the person serving me has always washed their hands first. That is definitely something I watch for too. Unless it's something packaged. Then I don't really care since I'm not eating the package!

Which was it? Serving or preparing?

Which is it? Nitpicking or trolling?

Well in my mind there is a big difference, I want to know before making any sort of judgement what it was.
