First, Pies on Parade, tomorrow, in Rockland is sold out, so don’t make a special trip. Just ink it on your calendar for next year and purchase tix in advance.
Now about that poutine. I think I’ve found some that rivals Duckfat’s. Yessirree, folks, the poutine served at Lily Bistro, on Rockland’s Restaurant Row, is divine. Rich, full of flavor, and made with homemade gravy. Oh my, damn, it’s delish. Ordered it as my appetizer, and barely had room for the lamb shank, another tasty dish. Excellent meal. My friends began with the onion soup (classic, traditional, and superb), then one had the steak and frites (not a morsel left on his plate) and the other the night’s special, pan-seared salmon with butter-poached Maine shrimp (she’s a food writer, and the grin on her face said everything you need to know).
Now must put in a few laps before Pies on Parade, tomorrow.
