Valentine’s day, shmalentines day. The only love story we want to hear about is the one between cheese and carbs.
And you can get your weekly fill of the romance this winter at Bacchanal, a neo-bistro off Queen West, that’s serving up traditional Swiss raclette every Sunday until March.
- Peek inside Bloor-Yonge's new gourmet grocery store
- You can dine in an igloo in the heart of the city this winter
- This new King West restaurant is the ideal place to unwind
This experience is the ideal combo of sexy and rustic. For $38, you’ll receive hor d’oeuvres including cured meats, salad and baguette, followed by bottomless servings of raclette.
The ooey-gooey cheese is melted onto fingerling potatoes, cornichons and pickled white pearl onions.
For those who are cheese-averse, other traditional Swiss dishes to sample include Assiette de Saucisses — an assortment of sausages — including Bratwurst, Debreziner and Boudin noir for $18, Veal Schnitzel with sautéed wild mushrooms for $21, or Steak au Poivre, a 12oz striploin in peppercorn sauce for $37.
For dessert, famed pastry chef Cori Osborne — formerly of Alo — serves Gâteau de Savoie, a sponge cake with caramelized pineapple and white chocolate ganache. Or, go off menu and try the Gâteau de Banane… which is a work of art.
So whether dairy is bae or to cheese you say, “nay,” this Sunday special is not to be missed.
There’s something for everyone on the table, and it’s all mouthwatering.
