The weather is warmer, and Summerlicious is ready to spring our way! Over two weeks, restaurant-goers can explore the three-course prix fixe lunch and dinner options that are offered from more than 220 restaurants across Toronto, let’s make this an adventure!
Entering Azure Restaurant & Bar through InterContinental Toronto Centre, “luxurious” automatically stems your mind as the open perspective of Front Street through the floor to ceiling glass windows welcomes your sight. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Azure Restaurant & Bar can be seen to be enjoyed for all occasions.
Although Azure Restaurant & Bar is my very first visit of Summerlicious 2016, I can already say that it’s leading by quality, portions and value. Excitement that I can share to all visitors, the lunch ($28) and dinner menu ($48) offer the same items shown, prices include tax and gratuity.

The food enjoyed throughout the evening was phenomenal to say the least. From beginning to the end, Chef Shawn Whalen & Chef Grace Di Fede uses seasonal ingredients to make contemporary Canadian cuisine shine. What had me in awe was the vodka & lime spiked tomato soup as chilled tangy soups are always a favourite of mine, the glazed duck breast – so moist, tender and full of sweet flavours, and surprisingly, each of the desserts, with a special shoutout to the peaches ‘n cream cheesecake.
