Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Mildred's Temple. The staff made us feel very welcome and made a fuss about the fact it was our anniversary. The Tasting Menu for 4 was pre-set and every course was excellent. Started with Italian Bread Soup which reminded me of French onion soup. Each person received a bowl with a few shavings of parmisagn cheese and a few croutons at the bottom. The waitress ladled in a clear broth that had a wonderful rich beef flavour. This was followed by 3 different appetizers. Gnocchi poutine, shrimp and crab cakes in a spicy coconut sauce, and a caesar salad bowl. Each was terrific. But the shrimp/crab cakes were to die for. The main course included sliced grilled strip loin steak drizzled with balsamic vinegar glaze and caramelized onions and organic pan-roasted Irish salmon. Both were perfectly cooked and extremely tasty. These came with side dishes of buttered beans and garlic mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were amazing. By this time we were all stuffed. But dessert was still to follow. It was a tasting platter of homemade desserts and fair-trade coffee. They had taken 2 profiteroles from the sample plate and written out Happy Anniversary on a separate plate for my wife and me. We brought a couple of nice old red Burgundies from my cellar for which they charged a $25 per bottle corkage. Very reasonable in downtown Toronto. Took our 19 year old daughter and 24 year old son with us. They both described it as one of the best meals they've ever had at a restaurant. Mildred's isn't inexpensive. But it's worth it.
