Modern Canadian cuisine might not mean much to you, but it’s not referring to some gastronomical take on poutine. Come to Archer when you want to have a fancy meal that really shows off all the local produce and ingredients in creative dishes, like a plate of maitake, chanterelle, and lobster mushrooms that resembles a forest floor landscape and aerated polenta with baby vegetables and soft egg dressing that’s practically a salad. Get the flaming cheesecake for dessert, which is more than just a tableside show. This is the best dessert in the city, with layers of miso caramel, sesame crust, and sour cream cremeux under a thin dark chocolate dome.
