Winterlicious just started, where you can take the opportunity to discover restaurants around Toronto.

Over 200 restaurants participate during January 29 – February 11, where you can try three-course prix fixe lunch or dinner meals (ranging from $18-$45). Reservations are recommended.

Barsa Taberna, located next to the St. Lawrence Market at 26 Market Street, takes pride in their interior design, resembling that of Barcelona by John Tong‘s collaboration with the restaurant owner, Aras Azadiana. The 19th-century-built restaurant is revamped with works inspired by Gaudi, Picasso, and Dali which incorporate the city’s contemporary culture with bar stools, colourful bottles, abstract bulls, and flamboyant mosaics creating a dynamic atmosphere.

On Monday, August 25, Toronto bloggers congregated at 777 Dundas Street West for Bent’s Veggielicious workshop. The restaurant is owned by internationally celebrated chef Susur Lee, managed by his sons, Kai and Levi, and designed by none other than its namesake, wife and mother of the men, Brenda Bent. Meeting a world-renowned chef can be an intimidating experience, but Chef Lee welcomed us with open arms, always reminding us, “This is my home. And my home is your home.”

The event…

Personally, I’m a fan of tasting menus, as you get to try out many of the restaurant’s dishes, giving you a good feel for what the restaurant is all about. There are quite a few great tasting menus in this amazing foodie city, and the #HKDateNight menu is Hudson Kitchen’s entry in this field.

Newly opened at King St West, Los Colibris boasts the title of the first upscale Mexican restaurant in King West.
