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

Posted on Updated on

logo
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.

Whisky 2.0 – Barrel Aging Whisky/Whiskey at Boxcar Social Riverside

Posted on Updated on

business_card_blank-page-001

With so many Whiskies at Boxcar Social (and so many locations) they’re adding a NEW series of Whisky events with Toronto Common, this time at their Riverside location featuring the influence of barrels on the aging process.

Boxcar Social’s Whisky director has selected a series of whiskies to showcase the differences between non-age statement versus age statement single malts, single barrel versus small batch bourbon, and a cask finished vs a cask strength single malt.

Whiskies come from all over the world, use different grains, and have different traditions. The one binding element of the spirit is barrel-aging. Every variety has it’s own standards and practices, but what makes a whisky shine with golden or amber hues is the type of barrel or cask it’s rested in.

From virgin American Oak for Bourbon, to the Sherry casks used in Single malts, the wood will define much of the colour, aromas, flavours, and finishes of a whisk(e)y.

In this tasting series, Ray will be taking us on an in depth look at how different casks affect the final product. What’s involved in aging. How are different casks used to create unique flavour experiences. What are the rules of barrel aging.

A selection of Crostini, Cheese & Charcuterie will be available as well.


Boxcar Social is quickly taking over the city landscape with a location in Summerhill, Leslieville, and now Harbourfront, plus two off shoots the Slip (summer patio) and Clocktower Bar.

The concept behind Boxcar Social was simple: Do what they love, do it with friends, and do it really well. Offering a curated, rotating list of coffees from the best roasters in the world, a careful selection of some of the world’s top wines, craft beers, and whiskies – they strive to create the most unique tasting experience for their customers. And enjoy every minute of it.
