Toronto Winterlicious

They say, we Torontonians hibernate during Winter. So in order to bring us all out despite the Ice storm and snow storms that we are experiencing during this Winter, we celebrate with festivals like the Winterlicious which runs from January 31 to February 13. The Winterlicious Festival is a culinary event where the City's best restaurants participate by offering a prix-fixe three or four course lunch and dinner menu for an affordable price between $15 to $45 not including drinks. This is a wonderful and fun opportunity to get out and explore the City's best restaurants at an affordable price. Despite the cold, we go out and explore to our own delight! 
My family and I decided to try Creme Brasserie at Yorkville. 
The interior of the restaurant is so elegant and French with creme walls and elegant chandeliers. 
Fresh warm bread with humus spread. 
For the first course, we had Mussels Poulette with leeks, mushrooms, creme, white wine and lemon.
  For the main course, some of us had Fish and Chips and my brother had lamb with vegetables. 
For my dessert, I choose the Chocolate crepes with strawberries, bananas, orange liqueur and warm chocolate sauce plus my Latte with chocolate biscotti which I ate too soon.

Overall, our meal was delicious. Our waiter was friendly and enthusiastic about the event. He also recommended the delicious meals in the Winterlicous Menu. I liked the mussels, the fish & chips and of course the chocolate crepes. We all had a great time coming out to the elegant Crème Brasserie and enjoyed our delicious three course meal.

Keep warm and safe this Weekend!

  9. What a clever idea to encourage people to go out when everyone is tempted to stay warm indoors. The food and venue would suit me fine! It's a while since I had mussels but this version I'm sure is delicious.
