“But if I had to choose a single destination where I’d be held captive for the rest of my time in New York, I’d choose the Metropolitan Museum of Art.”
Luckily for the budget-minded, Toronto’s Summerlicious (‘special offers’ offered by restaurants throughout the city) is in full effect.
My best friend, Regina, and I decided that we would try Canoe restaurant’s menu. We called on the day of and luckily got a spot for 2:15 Lunch.
Located atop of TD Tower, we marveled at its breath-taking view of Toronto and appreciated the taste and the visual presentation of the food served to us.
For $25 Lunch we got:
New Farms Chilled Cucumber Soup
Orange Scented Cucumber, Hewitt’s Buttermilk & Dill
(Prepared by Regina’s boyfriend who is one of Canoe’s chefs)
MAIN- Wellington County Flat Iron Steak
Gai Lan, Sarladaise Potatoes & Smoked Mustard Aïoli
(BEST STEAK I HAVE EVER EATEN)
Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse
Coco Caramel & Devil’s Food Cake
(Chocolate and Hazelnut….the keys to my HEART)
Overall a delightful experience!
