I was out of the country for the past couple weeks, and unfortunately didn't get a chance to check out as many Summerlicious menu's around the city as I would've liked to. However, I did make it to Mistura, on the very last day of Summerlicious!We started with a bottle of wine, basket of bread and dip. Our party of 3 all opted for the same options for each course...
Garganelli pasta with charred tomato, roasted italian sausage and fresh basil. What a great way to start the meal. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the sausage added a rich depth of flavour.
Slow roasted Ontario leg of lamb with caramelized onions, potato salad and local summer vegetable medley. This main was so so so good. The lamb was very tender and packed with flavour. The delicious jus went well with the potato and vegetable and was the perfect accompaniment for the meat. This dish was close to perfection for me.
Lemon ricotta cheesecake with macerated summer berries. This dessert was just O.K. Nothing particularly great. I found the cheesecake to be a little dry.
Overall, I really enjoyed the my meal at Mistura. The food was memorable. The restaurant itself provided a classy yet welcoming ambiance. Our server was attentive and informative. I will definitely be back to check out their regular menu!
