The evolutionary menu at Atelier changes whenever there is a need: a change of season, a new idea, a desire. This restaurant, perfectly orchestrated for an optimal dining experience, serves a blind menu so you get a surprise as each dish arrives at your table. And did we mention it’s a 12-course meal? A sense of adventure is required for eating here, as chef/owner Marc Lepine uses unique techniques and presentation. Be prepared to settle in, not that it will be difficult — the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, offering a special experience (and the makings of a great story). If you’re going for dinner, please note that there’s no sign on the door. Reservations required. 540 Rochester St., 613-321-3537.
