[MEDIA] ONE Restaurant ★★★★★

Disclaimer: Thanks to BrandingandBuzzing, I was given the opportunity to attend an intimate media dinner at ONE Restaurant last year with a few fellow foodies. Had a wonderful time sampling the menu and getting to know everyone. I definitely felt spoiled! The menu has probably changed by now but I would still recommend dining here if you…

Summerlicious – Stock ★★★1/2

Price: Over $30+ Decided to try a new restaurant with some foodie friends this year and after a vote, settled on the $25 lunch menu at Stock in Trump International Hotel & Tower. Right as I walked in, I noticed the pretty interior decor of the hotel. I thought the lobby was really nice if…

Summerlicious – Azure Restaurant & Bar ★★1/2

Price: $30+ So came here for lunch last year with a fellow foodie lover, we felt like trying something new and this place seemed nice. The restaurant is inside the Intercontinental Hotel. I had the caprese salad as an appetizer, which was small but enjoyable. My friend commented their appetizer, a baby green salad was a…

Winterlicious – PURE SPIRITS Oyster House & Grill ★★1/2

Price: $30+ My apologies! With my vacation and just life in general, I was a bit preoccupied this month and my review of Winterlicious at Pure Spirits is long over due. This was my second visit to Pure Sprits and I have to say I was a bit disappointed with them service wise. I had made…

Winterlicious 2012 – Canoe Restaurant

Canoe is one of my personal favourite restaurants, which is evident from my previous review. However, I recently ate here on the first day of Winterlicious and I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed with the food this time. Maybe it was because this was the first day of Winterlicious or the menu…

Summerlicious – Blu Ristorante & Lounge ★★1/2

Price: Over $30+ I ate here for a past summer-licious event’s with some friends. I had a salad, veal scallopini with butternut squash puree and tartufo ice cream. Everything was okay but it wasn’t really that amazing. I found the salad had too much sauce on it and the butternut squash puree nice but kind…

Sassafraz ★★★

Price: $50+ My friend and I were shopping around Yorkville and suddenly felt like grabbing a bite at a new restaurant. We were debating between Sassafraz and One (which we couldn’t even identify until we basically went up to the hostess to check menu’s. I guess the restaurant doesn’t need to advertise it much). We…

Auberge du Pommier ★★★

Price: Over $50-100+ I went to this restaurant during Summerlicious, it cost me $40-50 for a 3 course meal with a drink and coffee. Restaurant itself feels like a cute cottage and inside is very nice. Food was good but I found the presentation of it to be very stark. Coffee and tea were also…
