Winterlicious Reservations Starts TODAY (January 12)!!!!!!!

Who is excited for Winterlicious?  The twice-annual ____licious (winter and summer) commences on January 26 and will continue for two weeks.  Many of the regulars are back, including La Societé, Boulud and Oliver & Bonnocini Bayview Village (I always wonder why it’s THAT location rather than, say, Front Street.  Shouldn’t there be some sort of […]

Truly Unique Pizza on King and Jarvis

I recently had the opportunity to try True True Pizza on King Street, just east of Jarvis.  The pizzeria, which recently reopened after re-branding from One Pizza, offers uniquely shaped, oblong, personal sized pizzas with a variety of different toppings where customers can customize to their liking.  These toppings include the usual suspects found in […]

Chowing Down in Chi-Town: Chicago’s Culinary Experience

As someone who enjoys health and wellness retreats, embarking on a foodie excursion to Chicago would require me to adjust my expectations. There would be a dearth of fruits and veggies at mealtime, to be sure – after all, the city is known for its deep-dish pizzas, hot dogs, and pierogis. In fact, it was […]

Je T’Aime Maman Toronto!

Those of you who work in Toronto’s financial district are in luck.  Bakery/café and SoHo favourite, Maman has opened north of the border and features delectable southern French treats.  DelectablyChic! had the opportunity to attend media event on Bastille Day where we had the opportunity to sample cocktails and some of the treats, both savoury […]

Summerlicious 2015: Reservations Open Today

Many old favourites are back, including Trevor Kitchen + Bar, La Société, Sassafraz and One.  Lee and Bent are also on the list, Luckee is not.  Also missing is the restaurant at the Drake Hotel.  Perhaps they’re just sitting this one out and will be back for Winterlicious 2016.  Who knows?  Prices remain the same […]

A Meal at Ottawa’s Mezzanotte

Fine dining in Ottawa isn’t hard to find, but that is really more of a problem than it might sound. Ottawa’s Byward Market is full of locations that will provide you with a satisfactory experience, however, if you’re anything like me, satisfactory just isn’t good enough. I want it all when it comes to my […]

Freekeh Out Over a New Salad at Aroma!

From delicious breakfast items like shakshuka (I had my first there!) to soups (always comes with delicious baked-in-store bread), sandwiches and salads to their wide range of caffeinated drinks and pastries, Aroma Espresso Bar is one of my favourite places to grab brunch or lunch.  In fact, this Israeli-based eatery is popping up all over […]

Dining at Diwan Restaurant in Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum

Diwan Restaurant, the 85-seat dining room at the architecturally-stunning Aga Khan Museum is located near the not-so-convenient Don Valley parkway. There aren’t many other sit-down restaurants in the vicinity, which is largely known for its big box outlets. So it would be fair to say that Diwan has a captive audience of museum goers around […]

Dining at TOCA’s Chef’s Table

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a media dinner along with several other food writers at TOCA, the Italian restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton in Toronto.  The experience included a four course meal in addition to some sparkling wine and a visit to the “Cheese Cave” prior to the meal where we had the […]

Porzia: Spring Menu Delicious, Event Could Have Been Better

I had the chance to experience Porzia‘s new menu on April 15 through an invitation from its PR company.  It was served cocktail style with cheese, crostini as well as pasta and dessert.  The food was excellent, but the environment was far from that.  In order to truly taste the food, attendees had to hover […]
