NEAR: L’Unità

18 Apr

So I figured I’d wait a while to try a new restaurant since I’ve been working on other resolutions. After all, I have now completed NINE of my ten resolutions and it hasn’t even been six months. Go me! But the sacrifice is my waist line (and after trying on a few pairs of shorts, I’m realizing I need an exercise resolution, not a restaurant one).

The culprit in feeding me copious amounts of delicious food this time? L’unita.

I’ve attached pictures but it was so dark in there that we literally had to crowd four candles around the food to get a decent picture.  Yes, were one of *those* diners.

After deciding to try out L’unita instead of Niagara Street Cafe (which beckoned my first twitter hater who didn’t like the fact that I wasn’t coming to Niagara Street Cafe because it was closing), I’m glad I made the choice.

Nota Bene. Love this artwork and the colours and scale go so well with the muted room.

Nota Bene is quickly becoming one of my favourite restaurants in Toronto. The lovely folks there invited me to come try out the menu and their special of suckling pig. My good friend Kerri and I had quite the extravagant meal and there were still items on the menu I wanted to try.

I’ve also been to Nota Bene without an invitation and my review of that is here, as part of my restaurant resolutions for 2012. A big thanks to Nota Bene and their team for being so generous  to us. Your service was exemplary. Hopefully, I’ll get to meet David Lee one day if only to hear his accent again. He has quite the accent!

A note: Kerri has many allergies and the staff were very accommodating to her needs. They separated items when needed and informed her of dishes that she wouldn’t be able to have. They were patient and receptive to her requests. So if you’ve got an allergy, NB will take care of it and you don’t have to miss out.
