Have You Checked Out Mississauga’s Own ‘Summerlicious’ Yet?
While almost everyone knows Summerlicious is in full swing in Toronto, foodies and restaurant lovers should also be aware that they don't have to travel too far east to enjoy a special prix-fixe menu celebration.
The Taste of Clarkson Summer 2018 is also in full swing, and is on from now until Aug. 12.
To be clear, Taste of Clarkson is not a Winterlicious event (Summer and Winterlicious are culinary initiatives exclusive to Toronto). It is not, however, dissimilar.
Basically, three participating Clarkson-area restos are offering guests affordable, prix fixe lunch and dinner menus that will, ideally, draw in more casual diners and highlight local cuisine.
Participating restaurants include:
Solstice Restaurant and Wine Bar
Michael’s Back Door
Clarkson Mediterranean Bistro
Diners can enjoy a three course lunch ($23.95) or dinner ($34.95) at the restos during the event (although diners should note that only Clarkson Mediterranean Bistro is offering a prix-fixe lunch).
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,” organizers are known to say in regards to the popular event. “And see what is your neighbourhood and travel the world with the dishes served.”
So, if you’re hoping to stay local, it looks like Mississauga — or at least the Clarkson area — is providing some delicious incentive.
