Weird... Great Milestone's Experience!

Normally, I am anti-chain restaurant. But we were starving after having done some shopping at Bayview Village and were unwilling to try another Oliver - Bonaccini restaurant, so soon after the Canoe experience yesterday (see earlier posting). SO we drove over to Yonge street and the Bellini beckoned!!

Skipping the mains on the advice of someone we know who used to work there, we went with several apps to share and martinis. IT WAS GREAT! Lots of flavour, lots of texture - even the salsa and chips had three different salsa's (corn, regular and guacalmole) with plenty of cilantro and onion and kick (without being painful). I was flabbergasted! Quesadillas? Also good. Hubby had the potatoe and corn chowder, which he loved, and we also had kaffir lime leaf chicken skewers with three dipping sauces. It probably won't win any awards but even the waitress said: eat during the week there and you get consistency (vs. the weekend) because they are less busy and you have the same sous and chefs working Mon-Fri. good tip.
