When I heard that Chef Dom Ruggiero had opened another restaurant called Fire at Will, I was excited. We have enjoyed many meals at Hush Public House and were looking forward to seeing what Fire at Will had to offer.
We were seated promptly by the friendly hostess and our server came right over. Amy was great and came back frequently to check on us. Besides ordering wine, one of my dining partners tried the 75mm, an infused gin drink with prosecco and pear. She enjoyed it immensely.
The menu included a lot of tempting items. You could easily make a meal with the small plates, but we opted to do a combination of small plates and bigger plates.
For starters, we went with the Little Gem, which is a play on a traditional wedge salad. We also had the Clams Casino. They were decadent and delicious. We also ordered Frite Street Fries which came out hot and perfectly seasoned. They come with three homemade sauces including ketchup, an aioli and a ranch dressing.
For entrees, two of us opted for the Salt Spring Mussels which were in a white wine, cream, leek and tarragon broth. The portion size was generous and filling and the grilled bread it came with was outstanding and perfect for dipping in the broth. We also tried the Aglio e Olio Bucatini which had just the right amount of garlic and chili and was brightened up by the addition of lemon and parsley.
Dessert was a shared Fruit Cobbler. The fruit changes with whatever is freshest that day and it comes topped with a scoop of gelato.
There were so many other items we wanted to try, but we could only eat so much!
We really enjoyed our meal and experience at Fire at Will and look forward to many more visits.
