The Date and Time: Wednesday, June 9, 2016 6PM to 10PM
The Event: POSH Supperclub VIP & Media Launch
The Venue: POSH Supperclub, Cumberland and Yonge
The Target Audience: restaurant/wine media
The Quote/Background: we were greeted by Meg Sethi of Evolution PR, the owners, and Chef Racine. There was a walk-around tour and chats with friendly staff, plus the inevitable cocktails, beers and wines. Red wine was Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon; white was Barefoot Pinot Grigio. Both were useful and serviceable party wines, made even more economical by the magnum. Actually, the whole wine list is affordable.
The Food: At restaurants, it is always about the food with us. Here there were enticing platters of well-done pork belly confit with Asian sauce, raw ahi tuna with cucumber, chicken breast roulade with smoked gouda and jamon, Greek lamb lollipops with tzatziki, diver scallops with jerk spices, shrimp, skewered meats, and a made-to-order orecchiette pasta with rosemary cream, mushrooms, thyme, and white truffled olive oil. The food was fab and enjoyed by all; there was also lots of it.
The Downside: it was a long day for both my wife and I, so we left before the major entertainment started (but we were greeted earlier on by a performing pianist).
The Upside: a chance to see a new party room in Toronto and to taste its small plates.
