Here’s some delicious news from Tourism Burlington!
Burlington restaurateurs are proud to announce “A Taste of Burlington” will be running again this winter from February 20 – March 11, 2012. Burlington is quickly becoming known as a dining destination with the variety and unique offerings of larger metropolitan cities combined with the accessibility and service of a small town. Twenty-five of Burlington’s finest restaurants will be presenting a three-course prix fixe dining menu with lunch being offered at $15 or $20 and dinners ranging from $30, $35 and $40.
From casual fine dining to intimate bistros Burlington satisfies every taste. This programme encourages residents and visitors to dine in one or more of our many dining establishments and enjoy new culinary experiences. A Taste of Burlington offers quality dining at an exceptional value.
This winter we have added a local food promotion and partnered with Foodland Ontario to encourage each restaurant to add local (Ontario) sourced ingredients. We have 25 restaurants on board and 13 have already made the commitment to a minimum of one entirely locally sourced entrée and many of the others are offering some local (Ontario) sourced items on their menus. Look for the “Foodland Ontario” icon on our menus & website.
Diners will also want to be sure to get their ferrero roundnoir™ chocolate with a RBG 2 for 1 coupon when dining with Taste of Burlington – sweeten your Taste experience by visiting the Royal Botanical Gardens Chocolate: The Exhibition and The Burlington Chocolate Trail.
“A Taste of Burlington” will showcase the world’s culinary culture. The participating restaurants include: The Alex Restaurant, Alloro, Beaver & Bulldog, Downtown Bistro, Earls, Eatalia, Garden Café @ RBG, Honey West, Jake’s Grill & Oyster House, La Costa Nuova, Local Eatery & Refuge, Martini House, Paradiso, Pepperwood Bistro, The Purple Heather, Queen’s Head Pub, Rayhoon Persian Eatery, Red Canoe Bistro, Rude Native Bistro & Lounge, Siam Dish, Spencer’s at the Waterfront, Stone House Restaurant, The Water St. Cooker, Walker’s Fish Market and West Plains Bistro.
Menus are available at http://www.tasteofburlington.ca/. Now is your chance to savour a bite of it all, and discover the many eateries located in beautiful Burlington! Diners will also have an opportunity to win one of two Wine and Dine gift baskets valued at over $300 sponsored by the restaurants of a Taste of Burlington. Plans are also underway for a summer program in July 2012. Check the website for participating restaurants and menus, coming later this spring.
