THE FAREWELL

USA, 2019. Directed by Lulu Wang. 98 min. PG In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, US-raised Billi reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself.

“This is a simple but genius film that sheds light on Chinese culture and philosophy while delivering a doozy of a paradigm shift.” - Tara McNamara, Common Sense Media

DISPATCH

386 ST. PAUL STREET / 289-273-2393 TZATZIKI $18 This simple, yet complex app is out of this world. Fermented with sheep’s milk yogurt (and lactose free!) every bite is a playground of contrasting textures with fermented cucumbers, crispy shallots and spiced brown butter. Served with Turkish bread made in-house, the attention to detail shows on both the plate and palette. [JY]

DANI’S BISTRO

259 ST. PAUL STREET / 289-362-0222 LOBSTER + SHRIMP BURGER $16 Roll up your sleeves and ask for extra napkins with this juicy bad boy. Served on a buttery brioche — the ideal vessel for shrimp and lobster — and topped with sesamedressed garden slaw and lemon sriracha aioli, it’s the seafood sandwich all others aspire to be. Better still, the greens are from Chef Pete Tindall’s garden. [TM]
