Eat: Jules Bistro (Queen & Shaw location)

Jeff likens Jules Bistro to be a hidden gem. He speaks highly of the steak for two; big portions and good value. Their first and original location is near Queen and Spadina, but they have opened a second location on Queen and Shaw.

Jules Bistro serves French cuisine without the snootiness, classy enough without breaking the bank. It is a decent place for a date night or a small group gathering.

We got the Côte de Boeuf for two ($64). It comes with 24oz rib-eye, frites, mixed greens, ratatouille and spiced mayonnaise. It came on the table on a large wooden platter and can definitely feed one more person (you can, which makes it an even more better value). The rib-eye was cooked to our preferred medium rare, but we felt we got a fatty piece of meat. As well, if the dinner is for two people, it should at least be cut into equal pieces. The frites seems to be on the frozen variety but overall, it is a pretty filling meal for two.

Edit: Jeff took me to Jules Bistro for my birthday dinner. I thought it would be just the two of us, but he organized a surprise one with my best friends. ❤

Salmon Carpaccio ($19.95). It was one of the special of the day.
Magret de Canard ($58) – duck breast, frites, mixed greens, ratatouille and spiced mayo.
The full massive portion!
