Winterlicious: Our Top Picks

February 6, 2014, 4:07 pm

At this point in the season, we’re all very ready to ditch our parkas and enjoy some warmer temperatures. One thing that keeps our spirits high, however, is Winterlicious, an annual gastro tradition that we look forward to every year! It’s every foodies dream – indulge at some of the most impressive (and delicious) restaurants in Toronto for reasonable Prix Fixe prices. We’re sharing some Winterlicious highlights that we have or will be enjoying!



Tonight at 7pm Rosewater is offering a Wine, Cheese & Chocolate pairing event, guided by their Executive Chef and Sommelier. This is a great event to both indulge the senses and pick up some tips and knowledge for the next time you host! The Prix Fixe menu is just as enticing…from the Applewood Smoked Duck Breast Salad to the Ricotta Gnocchi…we can’t wait.


Ciao Wine Bar

One of our favourite Bloor-Yorkville spots Ciao Wine Bar boasts the perfect ambiance for an intimate Italian dining experience. We can vouch for their pizzas…absolutely incredible! We’ve also heard that Bloor-Yorkville is throwing a fun, foodie contest…followers of @blooryorkville can tweet or Instagram their #YorkvilleFoodie food photo for a chance to win dinner for 2 to Ciao Wine bar. Count us in!


Spice Route

Some of the best Asian cuisine we’ve ever had! Tempura calamari and General Tao Chicken, anyone?


Casa Loma

We love a traditional High Tea experience! Casa Loma is hosting their very own this weekend on Saturday, February 8 & Sunday, February 9! And the best part is they’ll be serving up our favourite hot bevvy…DAVIDsTEA! Tickets sold fast but there are still open seats for the 2:30 tea. Get them here!


Cured meats, olives, making caponala and wine pairings…we’re really excited for The Art of Antipasto happening at Cibo on Wednesday, February 12! This is another great way to broaden your knowledge and impress friends and family at your next soiree (not to mention indulge in some incredible antipasto!) With regards to their Prix Fixe menu, we’ve got our eye on the Diavola Pizza…what about you?
