Mississauga's Own Mini-Winterlicious is Here

While almost everyone knows Winterlicious is about to kick off in Toronto, they 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 2017 officially kicked off this past week and is scheduled to run until Feb. 10. To be clear, Taste of Clarkson is not a Winterlicious event. It is not, however, dissimilar.

Basically, five 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.
  • Marco Polo Resto Bar

Diners can enjoy a two course lunch ($17.95), three course lunch ($21.95) or dinner ($29.95) 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 Winterlicious—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 (especially with inclement weather being part and parcel of this time of year), 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.
