Even during these challenging times, many restaurants throughout Toronto are open and eager to feed us! Let’s do our best to support them. Whether you’re ordering takeout every Wednesday for national #takeoutday or having a “big night in” on the weekend, here are my picks this week.
642 King Street West
This beloved neo-bistro on King West serves fully prepped and ready-to-eat dinners every Friday and Saturday. For $39 per person you’ll receive a four-course “back to basics” bistro meal featuring some of their French-inspired creations. Last week included vadouvan naan bread, French onion soup, roasted chicken with root vegetables and Basque cheesecake. And, there’s a reason to say “bon appetit” more than once, because their menu changes weekly.
1214 Dundas Street West
Chef Ivana Raca is dishing up meals for curbside pick up or delivery every Thursday to Saturday. If you’re craving vegetarian and pescatarian fare, try the “Dinner for Two” every Saturday. On this week’s menu: whole stuffed trout (a.k.a. Toronto Life’s essential dish) with a side of seasonal greens and house made focaccia ($68). Tack on sides from the regular takeout menu, such as the vegan crab cakes ($14) or the tiramisu for two ($14). Bonus for wine lovers: all bottles are half off.
Outpost Coffee Roasters
1578 Bloor Street West
Outpost Coffee Roasters is open for takeout, and ready to keep this city perked up (even in quarantine). This small-batch craft coffee roastery on Bloor Street West embraces seasonality and uniqueness – and it translates in their robust Americanos, frothy oat milk lattes, and satisfying baked goods. If you’re stuck at home, get your caffeine fix with a coffee subscription featuring house-roasted beans.
