Meal Deal: Mezza Notte

Hello Everyone!

First post of the year! (Wow, its February already…). Welps, I continue to be unreliable with posting I see. But have no fear (well, I’m sure you had no fear to begin with), I am back with not one but two posts. That’s right, you heard it here first folks! That’s two posts! Two! Anyway, enough showboating, let’s get this show on the road.

LaughlivEat and I went to Mezza Notte Trattoria. It’s close to home, so guaranteed to get home at a reasonable hour, since we decided to check it out on a weeknight. It was kind of unexpected to find an Italian restaurant between Finch and Sheppard on Yonge, given we usually think of that street as filled with Asian food. It looked like a cozy restaurant, which does the name “trattoria” justice I suppose.

So very obviously, we visited this restaurant during Winterlicious. As much as Winterlicious advertises itself as a cost efficient way of trying out the various restaurants in Toronto, the prices have made it kind of sceptical for a lot of people. Anyway, on with the food!

Meal Deal: Joe Bird

Hello Everyone!

Another week another Meal Deal. I wish I was that efficient haha.

So in a strange turn of events, the NSSSO wanted to go downtown for brunch. Colour me surprised was pretty much my only reaction to the suggestion. But hey, why not, especially if he was in the mood. So, he took me to a new restaurant at Harbourfront. I was just glad that it was a beautiful day, if it had rained then it would have wasted the beautiful patio area that Joe Bird featured. I’m a sucker for the industrial look (trying to convince the NSSSO that a concrete wall in the bedroom would be awesome), so the place appealed to me on looks alone. What would the food be like? I was told chicken, chicken and more chicken.
