Winterlicious at Yonge and Eglinton

Winterlicious is one of Toronto’s yearly cold-weather food festivals. Restaurants around town create special prix-fixe menus for the event, giving us all a reason to venture out into the cold and try something new.

It just wrapped up earlier this month, so here are four restaurants we had a chance to try during the event and what we learned.

North 44 (2537 Yonge St)

We learned that, despite the foray into celebrity chef land, Mark McEwan still has the magic touch. With all the new fine-dining spots at Yonge and Eglinton, it’s easy to forget this original high-class spot. We had a parsley crusted duck confit and the most exquisite rainbow beet salad.

Five Doors North (2088 Yonge St)

We learned that venturing south of Eglinton definitely has its advantages. The short ribs were ridiculous, but the flourless chocolate cake was the show-stopper.  While they may have moved locations, they are still making some of the best food Yonge and Eglinton has to offer.  Little known fact: Five Doors North was named for being five doors north of Gio’s, the restaurant with the big paper mache nose on its awning.

Prohibition (40 Eglinton Ave East)

We learned that a gastropub can be more gastro than pub. Prohibition was one of the Winterlicious locations with a lunch menu and it didn’t disappoint. We had “T.O.’s Best Truffle Mac & Cheese” – and it was!

Tabülè (2009 Yonge St)

We learned that healthy eating can be all kinds of delicious with the right spices. In this case, that spice came on a Kefta Kabob and a Halum salad with a magnificent pomegranate dressing.  One of the true gems of our neighborhood.
