Bits ‘n’ Bites (week of Jan 24)


There are many restaurants that do not participate in Winterlicious, but do create their own gastronomic celebration to entice people to dine out during the winter cold. At Glow, the Glowlicious festival–on now–donates proceeds to Breakfast for Learning–a non-profit organization dedicated to child nutrition. The generous prix-fixe menu includes a starter, entree and dessert. $15 for lunch and $25 for dinner.

Allen’s Becomes DiRōNA’s First Legendary Landmark Member

“We are pleased to welcome our very first Legendary Landmarks members,” said Jeff Allen, DiRōNA’s Executive Director. “We recognize that there are many facets to exceptional dining, and Allen’s represents a unique experience that fits well within our exclusive family of distinguished establishments.”

Allen’s Restaurant, styled as Toronto’s home of traditional Irish music and dance, stands as a tribute to the Irish-American saloons of owner John Maxwell’s native New York. In business for 23 years, it has received numerous awards, including the Wine Council of Ontario’s Award of Excellence.

The Legendary Landmark member category, which is one of three new categories in DiRōNA’s restyled membership structure, recognizes celebrated Comfort Food and Legendary Regional Fare. Restaurants in this category are distinguished by local flair and a rich history, with a menu and atmosphere that appeals to locals and is prized by visitors seeking authentic regional fare.
