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 […]

Online Food Ordering: UberEats vs DoorDash

Over the past few months, two new food ordering services have launched in Toronto.  The first is UberEats, which was in “beta” earlier this year, and the other, DoorDash.  DoorDash is available both as a website for desktops as well as an app for your phone, while UberEats is app only (during its “beta” phase, […]

Interesting Finds at the Gourmet Food and Wine Expo 2015

Once again, I had the opportunity to attend the VIP event at this year’s Gourmet Food & Wine Expo.  Some old favourites are back, as noted in an earlier post (and some were missing, as well, such as long time attendee, Hank Daddy’s BBQ).  Of course, I saw the wonderful people at Muskoka Lakes Wineries […]

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 […]

Happy Fifth Birthday, DelectablyChic!

Today is my birthday.  Incidently, it is also DelectablyChic!‘s birthday.  Five years ago today, the two year old Prospere Magazine became DelectablyChic!.  Though there were a couple of posts which went live before September 1, 2010, the first “official” post was a restaurant review of Cantine, located on Avenue Road, just north of Bloor. What […]

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 […]

Merlot Cola? For Real?

Yes, it’s for real (brand name is MerloCola) and it’s one of the many exhibitors at this year’s Gourmet Food and Wine Expo.  I tried it and have to admit that it was quite…interesting.  While the small sample was good, I’m not really sure if I’ll ever have a full serving.  I think I’m a […]

DelectablyChic!’s Favourite Toronto Restaurants: Milagro Cantina Mexicana

My husband got me into Mexican food.  Before meeting him, the only “Mexican” I had were school cafeteria tacos – you know, grocery store bought taco shells that are more chip-like than a “real” tortilla.  My parents never took me to any sort of Mexican when I was growing up – it was pretty much […]
