Quinn's Steakhouse & Irish Bar. Summerlicious 2019 in Toronto

Quinn's Steakhouse & Irish Bar. Summerlicious in Toronto

Each year the Toronto City Hall organises Winterlicious and Summerlicious where participating restaurants offer prix fixe lunch and dinner menus from CDN23++ to CDN53++. This is a discount from the normal menu, so it is a good time to experience the higher end restaurants without stressing our budget too much. Running from today 5 July till 21 July, I picked Quinn's Steakhouse & Irish Bar to start my Summerlicious foodie trail.

Quinn's Steakhouse is located at the ground level of Sheraton Centre (hotel) which is directly opposite the iconic City Hall building at Queen Street West. The grand Victorian building on the right is the old city hall.

We can access Quinn's Steakhouse & Irish Bar from the Sheraton Centre lobby.

We can also enter via the common entrance along Richmond Street West (which is shared with Shopsys, an elevated or "atas" deli as Singaporeans say).

We pass the old world bar as we made our way to the dining room.

The main dining room isn't very big. It was well furnished with heavy, well padded wood and leather, comfortable furnishings.

The room was lit with subdued, warm lights. The atmosphere was relaxed and cheerful - banter and carefree laughter can be heard around the room. It was full house during lunch.

Quinn's 3 course fixe prix deal costs CDN23++.

For starter, I had Quinn's House Salad. It came in a small plate, so I suppose this was the scaled down serving. There were lettuce, sun dried cranberries, sweet peppers, grape tomatoes, sunflower seeds, and chickpeas dressed with balsamic honey vinaigrette.

The salad though tasty had nothing memorable for a lasting impression.

(Pardon the picture quality as I struggled with my Huawei Mate 20x in the challenging low light conditions.)

For entree, I picked Steak Frites.

It's a 6oz Alberta flat iron steak, topped with Cafe de Paris sauce with house cut fries and lemon aioli dip at the side.

I had my flat iron steak done medium. It was generally tender though there were chewy parts here and there. Very juicy and full of beefiness which combined well with the smokey charred outside.

Cafe de Paris sauce is a complex mixture of herbs, spices, and condiments which together works well with the beefy steak. It is made with parsley, shallot, garlic, mustard, tarragon, paprika, capers, chives, marjoram, dill, rosemary, anchovies, curry powder and Worcestershire sauce which are whipped into the butter.

For dessert, I had a double chocolate fudge brownie with strawberry and whipped cream. The brownie was rich and moist with sweet buttery flavour, deep chocolate taste and subtle chocolate bitter undertones. Love it.
