Toronto gets new Italian restaurant with four-course Candle meals for $ 50
A four-course meal by the candle can do wonders for the soul and seriously damage your wallet.
Fortunately, high-end dining enthusiasts who also appreciate an affordable option will be able to get a four-course meal for just $ 50 at Toronto’s newest plant-based Italian restaurant.
Osteria Du opens its doors this Friday at 536 Queen Street West in the reinvented Away Kitchen and CafÃ© spot. The chic joint will serve its fixed-price menu on weekdays, with a slight price difference on weekends.
Weekday diners will be able to enjoy the four-course meal, which includes the dinner choice between a handful of options for a starter, pasta, pizza, and dessert for $ 50, and weekend attendees will have to spit a little more at $ 60 per person.
Some of their herbal options include dishes like mezza luna rossa, homemade pasta stuffed with beets, potatoes and ricotta and drizzled with a butter sauce infused with herbs and poppy seeds.
Their homemade pizza, designed to be shared, comes with two options on their set menu.
The inverno pizza options come with cashew mozzarella cheese, celeriac sauce, and vegetarian toppings like broccolini and squash.
The second option, the carciofo pizza, is perfect for any artichoke lover with artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers spread with garlic and pine nuts.
The food is similar in quality and caliber to its sister restaurant Avelo, according to a press release, and the interior is quite astonishing.
Plants hang from the ceilings giving a solid touch of green, and a massive Alexander Bacon mural spans a wall centered around a rose and a bird.
The restaurant also has a marble bar with even more plants and funky pendant lights so you can eat well on a budget while still taking some photos for Instagram.
Price: $ 50 weekdays (fixed menu) and $ 60 weekends
Address: 536 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON
