If you are looking to treat mom to something more than just brunch, no need to worry, we have a number of dinner suggestions that are fit for a queen.
Our butchers and chefs have taken the classic Chicken Scallopini and given it an amazing twist. The chicken breast starts off skinless, then butterflied and finished off with a light rosemary marinade. Including the drumette adds to the presentation and flavour. Grill or broil and serve with a tomato, buffalo mozzarella salad and some hearty greens like sautéed asparagus, grilled rapini and garlicy broccoli.
If mom leans toward seafood, she'll be happy to hear halibut is in season. This mild, firm and flaky fish will excite the taste buds whether you grill, pan-fry or bake it. We also have a selection of housemade crab cakes using fresh crab meat and Argentinian shrimp which have a texture similar to lobster. The mild buttery texture of our Chilean Seabass will make her say wow! Try a fillet of smoked salmon from Kristapson. This one of a kind salmon is a thicker cut and comes from a family run company in the Leslieville neighbourhood of Toronto. Everything is handmade and has four simple ingredients: Salmon, salt, sugar and smoke. Better yet, they've consistently been voted the best-smoked salmon in Toronto.
Finish dinner off by nibbling on a plate of cheese that includes the many flavours from Bellavitano Cheese. The first is Merlot-infused and merges the creamy cheese with the berry notes of the Merlot. Best pairings include toasted walnuts, thin slices of prosciutto and dried fruit. The Espresso flavour is great after dinner and even as a morning snack. The creamy wheels of cheese are hand-rubbed with freshly roasted espresso.
Either way, mom will be thankful for any dish you prepare for her.
