Best Thing We Ate: Raw Platter at CanoeBy Robert Hickey | July 8, 2014 By Robert Hickey | July 8, 2014
Seafood platters continue to be a hot item in Toronto. A few months ago we shared our top list of where you can find some of the most decadent raw towers in the city, here's a new one to try. We recently ate every ounce from this board of fresh meat at Canoe.
Dish: Raw Platter at Canoe
Back story: Chef John Horne's mission at this Canadiana themed restaurant is to showcase ingredients from across the country, from land and sea. The raw bar is the perfect start to a full sensory dinner (its best enjoyed between 3 people) and is best enjoyed at the chefs' rail.
Tasting Notes: While the selection may vary from time to time, you can always count on seeing a good number of oysters, shrimp and lobster. Bowls of scallop ceviche, tuna and salmon tartare and house-made sauces complete the presentation. Make sure you complement the platter with a crisp glass of white wine, Canoe has one of the best wine lists in the city.
