Stir Kitchen & Beverage Co. is a new restaurant located in a plaza along Hurontario St. just north of the 403. The spacious and open concept venue has exposed ceilings adorned with myriad of chandeliers and ceiling art. The large floor to ceiling windows of the space allow a flood of natural sunlight into the resto for the daytime crowd and in the evenings, the space is transformed with soft lighting and various wall mount fireplaces. The menu includes a number of starters, including daily house-made mozzarella, chef’s charcuterie (mixture of daily cured meats, bocconcini, house-made preserves and grilled naan bread), beer and kale dip (served with naan, cassava, beet chips and plantain chips) and poutine (cheese curds, beer and butter braised mushrooms, applewood bacon and chipotle aioli). You will also find a variety of salads, stone oven pizzas, and mains such as the Stir burger (a decadent burger made with an 8 oz patty topped with a truffle and mushroom duxelle, a grilled steak tip, and demi-glace on a grilled brioche bun).
17 Steakhouse and Bar was one of the most impressive new openings of 2015. Millions were spent redesigning the majestic 32,000 sq. ft. space filled with over the top features such as a gorgeous oversized freshwater aquarium filled with a colourful array of African cichlid fish that's visible from both the main bar and one of the two private dining rooms. The menu includes a number of U.S., Ontario and Alberta prime cuts of beef, including the tenderloin, strip loin, prime T-bone, porterhouse and tomahawk. You will also find Japanese A5 wagyu and a reasonably priced American flat iron wagyu at $40 for 8 oz. Other options include oysters, ahi tuna, seared scallops, tempura shrimp, fish options, salads, duck confit, bison tenderloin, risotto, chicken, braised back ribs, charcuterie board, calamari and a seafood tower.
3 - Bobby’s Hideaway
A nice and colourful place for the family is Bobby’s Hideaway in Streetsville. With dishes like the 1/2 pounder, Big Bobby, Weekender and Steak & Eggs, you can count on Bobby’s Hideaway to offer meaty, full-sized breakfast meals that are rich in protein along with all of the heavy carbohydrates to match it. During the day you will find everything, including veal parmesan, ribs, souvlaki, steak, seafood, pasta, smoked meat and all-day breakfast. As your kids are looking at the caricatures on the wall while eating their Sponge Bob's Fingers & Fries, you can be having the Weekender.
2 - Maharaja
The Maharaja is an incredibly stunning boutique restaurant inspired by the regal beauty of India’s diverse landscape of architecture and flavours. The concept offers a visual and culinary journey through three magnificent palaces of India and a menu featuring cuisine from four different regions in India. The storybook menu is divided into four regional cuisines found in India which have been influenced by various ingredients and flavours of a variety of countries including Greece, West and Central Asia and Persia. There are a number of shareable dishes and entrees highlighting the unique flavours of each region through Awadhi cuisine, classic Hyderabadi cuisine, Punjabi cuisine and Rajputana cuisine. The extensive menu caters to all palates and features distinct regional dishes presented on fine dishes such as copper bowls, slate boards, and copper table top grill.
Tacos have never been synonymous with Asian cuisine, but as fusion food gets hotter by the day, it's not at all surprising—and is in fact quite delightful—to find restaurants that put their own unique cultural spin on traditional dishes from other parts of the world. Mi'Hito Sushi Lab, another creation by the team behind the successful (and growing) Spoon and Fork brand, just opened its doors in the Courtney Park entertainment plaza in Mississauga and it's serving customers everything from fresh Japanese take away to hearty sushi burritos to—for the first time—beautifully assembled sushi tacos. The resto is the brand's second foray into the quick-service arena, following closely on the heels of the recently-launched Corner by Spoon and Fork. The restaurant, situated in the former Prince Sushi location, is designed with modern sophistication in mind. The grey walls are artfully decorated with tree images, giving the establishment a vibe that's both natural and industrial. At Mi'Hito, you can get spicy salmon, spicy tuna, lobster, unagi, beef, chicken, veggie and tempura shrimp tacos and they come with a plethora of toppings, including lettuce, corn, salsa, avocado, cabbage, green onion, tempura bits and coriander. In terms of price, you get a lot of bang for your buck. The spicy salmon taco, for example, is absolutely overflowing with ingredients (and generous bits of tender salmon) and only costs $4.50. The lobster and unagi tacos are the priciest at $5 each, but the pricing is more than fair.
