Canoe, Summerlicious 2010

Canoe Restaurant
66 Wellington St W, 54th Floor,
Toronto Dominion Bank Tower
Toronto, ON M5K 1H6
(416) 364-0054 


canoeOne of the top 10 restaurants in Toronto, Canoe! Even with a FIRST IN-LINE AMEX card, it took a while to get the phone call through to make a reservation. A 3-course dinner for $45 and a south view of the heart of Toronto downtown on the 54th floor. 🙂 

Overall, the food was nicely presented and taste was expected. Servers were well-mannered but in comparison with North 44, they are half a step down. Would I visit this restaurant again? I do think so. 

Complimentary Poppy Seed Bread 

 White Peach Sangria
I started off with a White Peach Sangria,
White Wine & Peach Schnapps and White Cranberry & Peace Juices 

Qualicum Beach Scallop Ceviché
Qualicum Beach Scallop Ceviché
Wild Leek Vinaigrette & Forbes Wild Mustard 

Fifth Town Goat Cheese Quiche

Pickled Vegetables & Watercress Salad 

Goat Cheese is not my thing. I feel like I’m a goat after trying a small bite. 

Roasted Chicken Supreme
Roasted Chicken Supreme
Northern Woods Mushrooms, Wilted Mustard Greens & Wheat Berries 

I would comment that the chicken was a bit dried but I do like the mushrooms. 

Alberta Beef
Alberta Beef
Applewood Smoked Bacon, Peaches & Cream Corn, Kennebec Potato 

The steak was a bit too cooked when it was asked for medium rare. I liked the smokey bacon that was along the edges of the steak. 

Rhubarb Ontario Berry Tart 

Rhubarb & Ontario Berry Tart
Lavender Meringue & Birch Syrup 

The Berry Tart was nicely made with the velvet colours, however I think the meringue can be a tad more crispy and I find the entire tart rather sour. 

Duo of Canadian Cheese with Bachelor’s Button (the purple flower)
Wild Flower Honey & Buttermilk Biscuit
