FOOD: Dining at the Jane Hotel

Who knew hotel food could taste so great? Cafe Gitane in the Jane Hotel defy all expectations of hotel restaurants. I went with a group of friends and we shared some Petit Plats to start off our meal - Brie and Apple and the Avocado, lemon juice, olive oil, chiliflakes on seven grain toast. While the servings were pretty small for 4 people to share, it was a nice tasty few bites of each item.

Bryan ordered Moroccan couscous, one of their specialties. And I got Salmon Pot Pie, which was nothing like I was expecting. Instead of creamy, dense pot pie it has delicious layers of fresh salmon crusted in crispy batter and olive sauce. Claire got a baked pasta and Aislinn took the healthy route with a salad.

Apparently the Jane Hotel is not only known for their food but for their night life. The bar is frequented with celebs, such as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. While the food was tasty, the thought of meetings the infamous Olsen twins is enough to make we want to return to the Jane Hotel.
