7 Course Mediterranean Surf & Turf Dinner at the Elm Tree Restaurant

Posted on Updated on

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 menu will include:
  • Beef Carpaccio with arugula, caper berries, roasted garlic, truffle, pecorino, tarragon vinaigrette
  • Pan Seared Scallop with sun dried tomato gremolata, roasted eggplant puree, horseradish foam
  • Grilled Octopus with chorizo iberico, capers, shallots, chipotle adobo, smoked paprika
  • Pork Belly with slow braised heirloom carrots, juniper – ale sauerkraut, sweet and sour jus
  • Cornish Hen with roasted brussel sprout, pancetta, celeriac puree, crispy shiitake, green peppercorn jus
  • Duck Breast with braised endive, bulgur, figs, pistachio crumble, pickled mustard seed, duck jus
  • Rack of Lamb Medallion with pomme puree, squash, oyster mushrooms, charred scallion
* some sides and garnishes may change based on seasonal availability
We’ll also be offering two ticketing options this time with the choice of dinner or dinner with a 3 wine pairings.

The Elm Tree is a family-run, modern Mediterranean restaurant focused on quality, fresh, ingredients.
Executive Chef, Ben Mishaev, studied at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, and apprenticed and worked at Michelin Star Cafe Boulud in New York, always with the intention of coming back to Toronto to open a restaurant with his family.
3 years in and the Elm Tree is quickly becoming one of Toronto’s hidden gem restaurants for great food, service, and ambience.
