Mildred Pierce, Toronto, ON

Every summer for three weeks, 130 of Toronto's finest restaurants offer a special 3-course prix fixe menu (lunch and/or supper) ... Summerlicious! It's a great opportunity to check out restaurants you've never been to before ... and in some cases, can't usually afford to go to.

Tonight, Joe, our property manager, treated us (the condo board) to Mildred Pierce, a fancy restaurant at the end of our street. We introduced him to this restaurant a couple months ago and he loved it. Unfortunately at the last minute he couldn't make it but he said for us to go anyway and he'll pick up the tab. So we did!

I had a fennel apple salad with sunflower seeds to start. I had pictured a leafy green salad with chunks of apple. Who knew that fennel is white, looks like linguine and crunchy?! My steak and shoestring fries were good. And my lemon tart was tasty.

I still haven't had a chance to take in any Summerlicious outings yet, which I consider to be a crime. Especially considering how much I like to dine-out.

But I'm sure I'll get around to it sooner or later.
