Toronto has been going through an exciting time as of late, with so many new independent restaurants opening and so many talented young chefs organising exciting pop-up ventures in quirky little spots all over town.
Enter Chef Matt Sullivan, ex of Malena, who has decided to do his own thing for a bit through his Boxed evenings.
We joined Chef Sullivan at his most recent event where he was joined by GFR favourite Sommelier Zinta Steprans. Together they served a delightful asian-themed eight course menu accompanied by some carefully selected wines at Toronto’s cosy Ortolan restaurant.
The evening was a great success, and a complete steal at $90 a head for both food and matching wines (ex of gratuity).
We’ll be keeping our ear to the ground for Chef Sullivan’s next event. Follow him @boxedtoronto for further details.
