Hot List: Maman

I recently had the opportunity to experience a lovely prix-fixe menu at Parisian cafe restaurant, Maman. Maman is located in the heart of the Financial District in downtown Toronto. The prix-fixe menu is served out on their patio, overlooking the buildings around the area.

To name a few dishes, their prix-fixe 3 course menu featured Grilled Tomato Gazpacho, Croque Maman with Parisian Ham & Comté, Quiche served with mixed greens, as well as Salad Niçoise. Last but not least, the lunch is finished with mini sweet bites and drip coffee or tea of your choice.

Once you step in, the interior of the cafe gives off a rustic Southern France atmosphere, providing a mini escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

To start, I went with the grilled tomato Gazpacho with sweet red peppers and cucumbers. It came with a cute glass cup with some diced tomato and celery topping. The best part about this starter is that it’s served cold, which is perfect for the hot and humid summer days we have been having. After every spoonful it gave a spice kick that was just right.

Next, came my main course – Salad Niçoise (tuna, tomato, hard boiled egg, anchovies, green beans, black olives, onions, olive oil). Since the other dishes were available for take-out, I opted for a dine-in exclusive dish. The Salad Niçoise was the perfect choice – the olive oil dressing enhanced the flavours of each element of the dish.

For one, who doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth, the sweet bites were definitely tasty! It complimented my unsweetened iced tea while balancing out my palette.

Enjoying a delicious prix-fixe lunch out on the patio in the heart of the Financial District really was the highlight of my day. I really recommend you try it out before summer is over! Their prix-fixe lunch happens every Friday on the patio from 11:30AM – 2PM.
