The patio at 135 Osborne St. has been my favourite Winnipeg one for many years. I was delighted that the little oasis has been resurrected by The Back Rabbit Bistro. Tucked away behind the main building was a vine covered enclosure which sweeps you away from busy Osbrone St. When the strings of white lights illuminate at dusk you could be in a funky Toronto neighbourhood or historic Old Montreal.

On this evening, Beep and I were meeting D for an after work supper. We arrived in advance to be sure to get one of the coveted patio tables.

After a visit and a lovely libation, we were getting a bit peckish and decided to share an order of fries to tide us over.

These were not any old French fries. They had been lightly seasoned with rosemary, dusted with threads of parmesan and served with an aioli for good measure. After we had polished them off, I read a text indicating that D had been further delayed and to start without him. Without further adieu, we got the menus out again and surveyed the small plates and thin-crust pizzas before deciding to order pasta.

Beep’s “go-to” is shrimp and noodles and she was impressed with the number of perfectly cooked shrimp and the lightness of the white wine cream sauce on the linguine. My tastes were opposite but equally enjoyable.

The linguine I choose was pungent with tastes of fresh pesto and olive tapenade (a Southern France concoction) which was rich and hearty tasting. A crumble of feta further elevated the dish and added a creamy texture and pleasant saltiness. Every twist of the fork was so satisfying; I didn’t even offer Beep or D (who had just arrived), a taste.

Service was efficient and pleasant and we could have happily lingered under the leafy canopy for hours.
