Glimmer's Gift Guide - Day Twenty Three and Twenty Four
Restaurant Gift Certificates - Value of your Choice
I'm combining two days because I suddenly realized that I actually had to do some shopping of my own and time was getting away from me. Restaurant Gift Cards or Certificates are a great gift. Who doesn't love a free dinner on a some cold, dark February night. I've chosen three of my favourite restaurants to share with you, but obviously you can choose whichever you like.
The above photo is of Colette Grand Cafe in The Thompson Hotel. Colette is a chic, french bistro and cafe. They have a wonderful Monday - Friday Salad Bar Buffet and a to die for weekend Brunch. I love the cafe and often pack up my Mac Book Air and blog from one of cute corner tables with a coffee and macaron on hand. Just like France!
If you haven't been to Impact Kitchen on King St. East - I suggest it to your restaurant rotation. Impact offers a delicious range of delicious minimally processed, nutrient rich food. Their breakfasts, bowls, salads and smoothies are made fresh in front of you cafeteria style, but served to your table. My favourite bowl is the Warrior, but they all look amazing.
I'm loving Val d'Isere on Bayview Ave. Super yummy comfort food including fondue, raclette (Fri - Sun) and Charcuterie Boards all in an alpine ski resort setting. It's the perfect spot to get cozy over a bottle of wine and some seriously delish food. I mentioned to the owner how crazy I was about the fondue, and he informed me that it's pure swiss cheese with no filler. And yes, that's bread and pickle that I'm dipping into that pure swiss cheese and it was amazing.
