Toronto marks 100th anniversary of Titanic sinking with some first-class dining


Published:

As buzz around this weekend’s anniversary of the Titanic sinking moves into “fevered” territory, a number of Toronto eateries are marking the occasion by reviving some Edwardian fine dining.

Perhaps most likely to give you the feeling of elegance from that gilded age (you know, before all that stuff with the iceberg) is an afternoon tea at Yorkville’s upscale Windsor Arms Hotel (18 St. Thomas St., 416-934-6022). On Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m., the hotel will be serving what it calls “tea-time treats” that are inspired by the original Titanic tea menu. It’s likely, though, to only appeal to those who really love the Titanic or tea, because it’ll set you back $75 per person and reservations are required. But they will throw in a commemorative Royal Doulton Titanic plate, like the one shown above.

Meanwhile, Starfish Oyster Bed & Grill (100 Adelaide St. E., 416-366-78247) and its sister joint the Ceili Cottage (1301 Queen St. E., 416-406-1301) are holding two “Last Supper on the Titanic” evenings (April 13 and 14). A first-class menu ($135) including Galway oysters, poached salmon and roasted quail will be served at Starfish, while those keen to sample barley broth and steamed plum pudding can tuck into the steerage menu ($50) at Ceili Cottage.  

Elsewhere, Gaspard store (913 Queen St. W.) will be holding a Titanic-themed evening of canapes and refreshments on Saturday.

Undiscovered Eats: Move over Parkdale, Gerrard East is the new cool foodie ’hood

Much like Parkdale, Gerrard and Jones has a bit of an unsavoury history. Pre-reno, the Maple Leaf Tavern was the mother of all dive bars. Not exactly what one wants as the keystone to a neighbourhood. But its recent reno (which took a cool three years) has helped energize the area, transforming it from rough-around-the-edges to foodie magnet and helping to act as bait for those looking for a place to set up roots.
