12431 102 Avenue, Edmonton, AB
A few weeks ago I went to Partake. It’s located on 124th street and 102 avenue beside Urban Diner. It comes to Edmonton from the culinary minds behind The Manor and Urban Diner. The Manor is set to close in March of 2019 which makes me sad because I loved going there for brunch! For parking, there is a small parking lot right in front, but there aren’t too many spots. Luckily there are lots of parking on the side streets and around.
We managed to get there for happy hour and were pleasantly surprised that you get a few bar snacks included with orders of cocktails! For drinks, we got the Empyreal, Casual Ardor, Ground for Divorce, and the Rose cocktail. The cocktails are very spirit forward but really good! I enjoyed all of them but my favourite would have to be the Casual Ardor. You can look at their cocktail menu here.
For the complimentary snacks, we got this popcorn with pork crackling and and a mini mushroom frittata. Both of these were really good! I really enjoyed them. The popcorn was really good to nibble on. For food, we got the beef tartare, escargots, duchesse potato.
The duchesse potatoes were served with parmesan cheese and an aioli on the side. They were so fluffy and soft on the inside. The outside was still nice and crispy. It went really well with the aioli. I found it a bit one-noted (it’s just potatoes), and by the end I was kind of tired of eating it and wanted to try/eat other food.
