Profile Last Updated: January 14, 2009
French cuisine is prepared with fresh and pure ingredients in the charming Paris-inspired setting of Matignon, tucked away just south of the Yorkville district. The bistro is especially accommodating of group events, including decadent wedding celebrations for straight or gay couples, students commemorating a special occasion, or large parties who want to be served in style. A specially priced prix fixe menu is always available.
Matingon’s lunch menu includes soups both hot and cold, and hors d’oeuvres like poultry in terrine, baked bread in goat cheese, and a dozen escargots. Duck sausage, minced grilled chicken breast and steamed mussels are some of the main courses, along with Black Angus steak, grilled salmon and fresh vegetables over pesto pasta. Other vegetarian meals are available upon request and the kitchen also serves up different appetizer and entrée creations on a daily basis.
Dinner at Matignon includes more elaborate dishes, both as rotating daily specials, and established menu items along with a comprehensive wine list. Braised fish and shellfish, grilled salmon, roast rack of lamb, Provimi veal and tiger shrimp dishes take centre stage each evening. Desserts include dark chocolate layer cake, crème brulée and profiteroles with ice cream and hot chocolate au Grand Mariner, plus a drink list designed especially for after dinner.
