All things foraged, wild and Canadian dominate the menu at this Little Portugal spot, but what else can be expected from a chef with the last name Hunter? While the ingredients might be local, the kitchen’s techniques span the globe: duck hearts are skewered yakitori-style and grilled to a tender, caramelized finish beneath a sweet soy glaze, and wild mushrooms are supported by caramelized onions and a mellow sorrel pesto in a textbook tarte tatin. Venison shoulder served with a tasty ash-crusted chop is tough and bland, but the handmade pappardelle with braised rabbit, buttered leeks, sautéed spinach and, surprisingly, apricot preserve works brilliantly. The small, mostly Canadian wine list is short on bargains but offers everything by the glass.
