Let's Eat: Windsor Arms - Winterlicious 2016 Preview

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.

Lobster Bisque

Roasted Baby Beets, Peppery Citrus Salad - with aged Balsamic reduction

Wild Mushroom Veloute and Black Trumpet Mushrooms Croquette

Crispy Calamari - with heirloom tomato salsa

Chicken Roulade - stuffed with spinach and mushroom, polenta,vegetable tempura and thyme jus

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

Vegan Truffles, Lemon Trio, Creme Brulee

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

  1. Dearest Celia,
    You really found a yummy place for enjoying a delicious winter dinner!
    The total ambiance and such quality food, artfully presented makes for memorable moments.
    Their pricing is also very good!
    Sending you hugs and stay cozy and warm.

  2. I love when you share beautiful pictures of food and decor. Even though we don't yet have anything near us like this, it makes me want to dig out my French cookbooks and start playing. I can put out the heavy linen tablecloth, the heavy silver, the beautiful crystal, Haviland china, and candlelight. But the problem with that is, I'll still have to do the dishes.

  3. OMG!!! I'm reading this post at midnight here in the UK and now I am starving. Everything looks divine and being a foodie also your choices would have been the same as mine x

  4. Seems such a beautiful place :)
