A Taste of Clarkson is Here


If you don't want to head to Toronto to enjoy Summerlicious, you don't have to -- a few acclaimed Clarkson gems are offering diners some prix fixe menus of their own.

The Taste of Clarkson 2016 officially kicked off this week and is scheduled to run until Aug. 15. To be clear, Taste of Clarkson is not a Summerlicious event. It is not, however, dissimilar. Basically, four participating Clarkson-area restos are offering guests affordable, prix fixe lunch and dinner options that will, ideally, draw in more casual diners and highlight local cuisine.

Participating restaurants include:

Solstice Restaurant and Wine Bar
Michael's Back Door
Tu Casa
Clarkson Mediterranean Bistro.

Diners can enjoy a two course lunch ($18.95), three course lunch ($21.95) or dinner ($32.95) at any of the restos during the event.

Beyond offering tasty food to residents who might not otherwise drop dough in such fine-dining establishments, the event aims to keep people -- perhaps people tempted by Summerlicious --eating a little closer to home.

"We urge you to stay in Mississauga for your fine dining needs for the weeks of Taste of Clarkson #stayinsauga," the website reads. "And see what is your neighbourhood and travel the world with the dishes served."

So, if you're hoping to stay local this summer, it looks like Mississauga -- or at least the Clarkson area -- is providing some delicious incentive.

The organizers are also holding a contest. Submit your name and email address to become eligible to win four $100 gift certificates for four Clarkson Village restos. Visit the Taste of CLarkson website for details.

If you want to #stayinsauga this summer, you know where to go.
