“A Dinner To Remember”


This three-Michelin-starred restaurant

– Le Cinq –

offers Parisian style gratinated onions,

sea bass with caviar in fermented milk,

and iced pistachio in red currant juice

infused with Kirsch brandy.


An unforgettable evening

for 241 Euros

– about 360 Canadian dollars –

including tax and service.


Merely a fraction

of the 7,000 dollars

the Ontario Liberals

wanted you to pay

for the party’s fundraiser dinner.


I’m curious to see the menu.
