An Exceptional Experience to end an Exceptional Year

How do you end the year that 2020 became? I am aware of the blessings I have had and the good times I have enjoyed – but it has definitely not been the year I expected. Many of us in our day-to-day have had to pivot, adapt, conserve and find joy in what we have. The holidays have become this beautiful beacon in my life and NYE is something I am really looking forward to with the best experience I can think of to enjoy at home.

Like many restaurants in Toronto, GEORGE Restaurant has had to think about getting to their loving guests like me in new ways. For those of you who may not have yet to enjoy this Toronto culinary icon, let me tell you why I love them.

Opened in 2003 by Chef Lorenzo Loseto who remains Executive Chef to this day. Classically trained in French cuisine but with worldly experience, GEORGE brings his menu to life with  innovative dishes comprised of the freshest, seasonal ingredients. 

GEORGE Restaurant offers a new fine-dining takeout experience for you to enjoy at home. Known for creating globally inspired dishes, the Chef’s signature tasting menus are seasonally sourced and provide an abundance of flavours, textures and unique combinations. GEORGE-TO-GO is complete with perfectly matched wines and cocktails. Pickup recommended but delivery available. New menus are released weekly which I also love.

The New Year’s Eve 2020 Menu is one that Julio and I will be enjoying at home and I cannot wait to end an exceptional year with an exceptional experience.

With the holidays all done and dusted for my meals, this one was easy to order to help me check NYE off my to-do list. It’s something I am excited for. That I want to dress up, set out the candles and enjoy with my husband. That being said, the great things about #GEORGEToGo is that you can savour this incredible meal in a onesie while binging Netflix too. All are welcome to enjoy, sip and savour.
