Steak Frites: This Black Sheep Restaurants establishment simplifies the whole dining process: pay a set price, gorge on steak and fries, roll home happy.
Look & Feel: A large red sign screaming the venue name outside its Peel Street entrance ensures zero chance of you missing the door. Inside is a cavernous, jovial space with tables covered in red checkered cloths, colorful paintings on the walls, and brass-toned light fixtures.
On the Menu: Choice is an illusion here. A bill of $278 per person gets you a walnut salad, unlimited fries, and a reasonable portion of trimmed rib-eye steak (l’entrecôte, dahhling) cooked to your preferred done-ness. Drinks and desserts are extra.
Meet the Chef: Tony Ferreira runs the kitchen, making sure the steak frites are served sizzling every time.
Service: We’ve been here a lot. Like at least six times. And service is generally friendly and efficient — although once, we did have a flying profiterole land in our lap.
Jeng: The crispy fries complement the smoky, juicy strips of steak. Paired with the tangy-creamy house Bearnaise, the combo is pretty hard to beat. We love the ambience too: it’s at once cheery and intimate.
Not So Jeng: If you’re going to order anything apart from the set menu, be prepared for a quickly escalating bill.
Great For: A rowdy meal with friends, a casual business meeting, a first date.
FYI: La Vache, fittingly, means “cow” in French.
