Pre-Jets Game Dinner-The Garry St. Keg

February17

We do not get to go to many Winnipeg Jets’ games so when we are lucky enough to snag some tickets, it is a big event for us. To make the evening even more special, we start with a dinner out. We are very strategic about where we dine because we do not want to have to park twice in downtown Winnipeg. That is why the Keg Garry St. was the perfect choice on this particular game night. We found a parking spot in the vicinity of the Millennium Library which was exactly half way between the restaurant and the MTS Centre.

Upon arrival, we realized that our good idea was also considered a smart one by a whole lot of other people. The dining room was full and so we opted to wait out our time in the bar. There were also no lounge tables available so we found ourselves perched on the high stools at the bar. It turned out to be such a fun spot that when it was our time to move into the dining room, we declined and ordered dinner at the bar.

One of the attractions was that many of the other pairs of diners were also heading to the Jets game and so we amicably chatted about the Jets’ chances that evening, injuries and trades.

We started with the spinach salad which the kitchen was kind enough to split onto two plates. I don’t know what makes me so crazy about this salad (perhaps the sugared nuts, the creamy goat cheese or the beautifully blended salad dressing) but I could eat it every single day. Strawberries are especially dear this time of year and it felt like a very special treat to have so many slices peaking out from underneath the spinach leaves.

D chose the pistachio crusted salmon that comes atop creamy garlic mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts tossed with bacon and maple syrup. He was very pleased with his choice.

I had a hankering for fish too and opted for the grilled ahi tuna on a bed of Asian cole slaw with a soy and sesame dressing. My first portion was too salty and so it was immediately whisked away and a substitute was provide that was absolutely perfect. I love the contrast of the seared meat on the surface with the cool and silky interior of the fish. The dish was light and satisfying and when it was game time, I still had the energy to make the quick walk to the arena.
