Though winter has been kind to us (so far) I'm always on the look out for fun things to do in the city that don't involve being outside. A great event that is happening in Toronto, January 29th - February 11th is Winterlicious - a culinary celebration offering an opportunity to discover delicious cuisine at more than 200 restaurants and experience unique culinary events - INDOORS!!! And what could be better than this? How about an invitation to preview the Winterlicious menu for one of my fav places for tea - Windsor Arms. It has been years since I've eaten at WA and was excited to get to see their Living Room restaurant and taste some mouth watering food.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words - so for all you foodies out there enjoy:
a sampling of what Windsor Arms is serving up to its guests for Winterlicious 2016.
Wild Mushroom Veloute and Black Trumpet Mushrooms Croquette
Pan Seared Sea Bass - with beet ravioli, shaved fennel and lemon butter sauce
Braised Lamb Shank- with sweet potato puree, glazed root vegetables and French beans tempura
Marinated Beef Rib - butternut squash and rosemary fingerling potatoes with horseradish jus
This is just a small sampling of the scrumptious dishes on the menu. You can find a full lunch and dinner menu here.
My picks: Crispy Calamari with Heirloom Tomato Salsa - the light batter was perfection and the calamari were cooked just right; Lobster Bisque - creamy, rich, smooth - my fav; Roasted Baby Beets, Peppery Citrus Salad with aged Balsamic reduction - I'm not a huge fan of beets but I have to say this salad had me enjoying bite after bite. Marinated Beef Rib - tender, moist, melt in your mouth - my fav; Braised Lam Shank - fall off the bone goodness; Chicken Roulade - light and tasty. Vegan Truffles - surprisingly yummy - loved the pistachio; Lemon Trio - the sorbet definitely had a cleanse your palate kick - the lemon pie - tres pucker lemony - my fav;
Seating fills up quickly so don't be disappointed and make your reservations today! Windsor Arms Hotel is located at 18 St. Thomas street, Toronto, ON - tel: 416-917-9666 or visit their website .
