Toronto Common 4 Year Sichuan Inspired Anniversary Celebration

Toronto Common 4 Year Sichuan Inspired Anniversary Celebration

Toronto Common will be celebrating our 4 year anniversary with a 5 course Sichuan inspired tasting at Loch and Quay!

The Sichuan (四川 - four rivers) province in China is famous for its ma la (麻辣 - numbing spicy) cuisine and with this incredibly cold winter we thought it might be nice to have a little extra heat and warmth.

This year’s anniversary event will also launch our new event series “Play”, a fun way for chefs to step outside of their traditional cuisine.

Northern Italian Pasta Tasting

Northern Italian Pasta Tasting

** 3 NEW EVENTS ADDED **

Toronto Common is excited to be back at The Peasant Table for a special Northern Italian Pasta Tasting series!

We've learned from our popular ramen tasting events that sometimes we just want to try all the carbs on the menu, so why should it be any different with pasta?

And our friends at The Peasant Table have 4 signature pasta dishes, each inspired by executive chef and owner Boris' childhood in northern Italy. The Peasant Table wants to bring a bit of the old world, rustic, Italian comfort food to Toronto with a bit of refinement from Boris' over 30 years in the food industry.

Our event will feature 4 starters in tasting portions as one course, and 4 pasta courses plus dessert for $35 tax and tip included with optional wine pairing of Prosecco with starters and Cabernet Sauvignon with the pasta courses for $45 tax and tip included.

7 Course Mediterranean Surf n Turf Dinner

7 Course Mediterranean Surf n Turf Dinner

Toronto Common is excited to be partnering with the Elm Tree for a special 7 course Mediterranean Surf & Turf dinner with optional 3 wine pairing.

Ever since we had our first Meatless Monday event, we've been dying to do a meaty (Monday or any day) event and we love the Elm Tree's collection of Mediterranean seafoods and meat dishes.

There's no steak or lobster for this slightly more adventurous tasting.

We thought it would be fun to showcase some less common surfs and turfs that people regularly see on menus, may be hesitant to order as a main, but would love a taste to expand their palate.

The 7 course Mediterranean Surf n Turf dinner is $65 tax & tip included, with an optional wine pairing of 3 wines for $80 tax & tip included.
