What more can be said, or added to the accolades of one of Toronto's outstanding restaurants? As a favourite of my son's, Mistura was his choice for a family birthday dinner. We started with shared plates of proscuito, crispy artichauts and the most delicious burrata one could imagine. Truly the burrata melted in our mouths. For our next course, again we shared: the beet risotto, in which you could taste each delicious individual grain of rice . Beyond the exquisite look of the wine-coloured offering, the creamy consistency of the risotto was perfectly flavoured. You knew the chef had actually stood and encorporated the broth bit by bit into the rice. The hands-on stirring makes a difference! For our "secondi', our family divided between the lobster pasta and the bolognese. Knownthroughout the city for these two dishes, Maximo truly deserves his reputation. My bolognese, a confection of beef, veal and sausage meats is so light that you would not associate it with a "meatballs and spaghetti" dish. The pasta as well is perfectly cooked, not too al dente or soft. Others had the chocolate brownie and maple ice cream, I was too pleasantly sated but enjoyed the presentation of the dark choclate roll against the icy maple treat. a lovely, well-paced, delicious supper. Not surprisingly, even on a Friday night, the restaurant was full to capacity.
