409. Cluny Bistro

Cluny Bistro lunch
Since I haven't updated my blog in so long here's my second post of the night! Yesterday my sister and I went for lunch at Cluny Bistro. It's a fairly new French restaurant in the Distillery District. Their interiors are beautiful! I love restaurants in this style. I had the Classic Croque Madame (with extremely skinny fries) and she had the Charred Marinated Tofu salad.

It was a Monday afternoon so it was pretty empty in there. Great atmosphere.

My portion was pretty large and very filling. My sister's was the opposite, so we ended up sharing mine. I really love the fries here. They're extra skinny and the seasoning was really good.

408. Recent Life

Brookfield Place World Press Photo
The annual World Press Photo exhibit is now on at Brookfield Place! I look forward to this every year; I never actually find out in advance when the exhibit starts, but I walk by here almost every day so it's always a nice surprise when I see it up. The exhibit is a collection of amazing photography taken by photojournalists all around the world. If you can't make it to the exhibit, you can see all the winning entries here. Some of the images are pretty graphic and disturbing (those are my favourite to look at though). Sorry my shot above is such horrible quality. I'm thinking I should start carrying an actual camera around instead.

Tomatoes and Mozzarella
Heads in Beds book
This is a great book if you love hotels like I do! It's very interesting and funny.

Everyburger Too Yacht to Handle
I love Japanese snacks. Picked up a box of these "Every Burger". At first I didn't think they'd taste that good but I just got them because they looked cute..but they are seriously DELICIOUS! I need to find a nearby Asian supermarket to stock up on more. After a long hunt for the perfect "Tiffany Blue" nail polish, I finally found it. This is Too Yacht to Handle by China Glaze. I love this shade.

Barsa Taberna patio Toronto
Barsa Taberna
A few weeks ago at Barsa Taberna for Spanish tapas. Sadly, the last patio night of the year as Summer is over already..



407. Dinner at Canoe

Toronto Canoe menu
Another dinner at Canoe..starting with a photo of the view and their new white menus. We sat at the chef's rail this time, facing the kitchen and watching the team prepare all the meals.

Canoe amuse bouche
Amuse bouche..a variety of tomatoes and cheese.

Licorice Infused Watermelon Canoe
I ordered the "Licorice Infused Watermelon" appetizer to start, as I love watermelon and the description sounded very interesting (with charred lobster, marscapone, fennel and pickled rind). I had no idea what it would be like but that's one of my favourite things about Canoe..the presentation is always unique and everything turns out delicious. This was served on this slab of marble (?) atop 3 hockey pucks.

Canoe Intermezzo
The intermezzo was like a very fizzy grape juice that melts in your mouth.

Risotto and creamed corn Canoe
I got the risotto (I loved it so much the last time I had it from the tasting menu that I had to order it again. Also got a side of creamed corn.

Canoe cheese
Canoe cheese
Cheese Plate. I'm not really into cheese that much actually..but the Glengarry Lankaaster was good.

mini donuts Canoe
view of Toronto
I will never get sick of this view!
