TAKE THIS OUT // What to Order from L’Abattoir, Ubuntu, Anh & Chi, Fanny Bay and Sprezzatura

Take-out has become a coping mechanism for diners and restaurants, helping both endure the long, dark weirdness of the pandemic. Over the months to come — in the stressed out space between today’s bubbles and tomorrow’s vaccines — Take This Out will focus on the delicious things we can all take home.

Pan-Fried Veal Sweetbreads

We begin this edition with Lee Cooper, Chef and Owner of L’Abattoir

What dish do you think that everyone should try?

Our 3-course prix-fixe menu changes on a weekly basis so for the April 8-10 menu you shouldn’t miss our classic pan-fried veal sweetbreads on toast which have been on our dine-in dinner menu since we opened. The take-away menu each week is designed to bring you back to your last meal in our dining room so that you can enjoy a bit of L’Abattoir from home even while we aren’t able to host you in-person.

Available: Thursday to Saturday from 5 to 7:30pm (pre-order up to a week in advance or up to 4pm on the day of your order – limited quantities available each day)

Where to order: Online at https://www.labattoir.ca/take-away-menu.
