Well what were the best invidual dishes or bites anyone enjoyed in the GTA during 2009 ?

To begin (simple pleasures):

- The simply delicious roast chicken with jus and mashed at Archeo

- Tableside-tossed Caesar and prime steak at Jacobs & Co

- Pizza al Pollo, extra cheese, "well done" from Camarra

          Negroni. Potato & Pancetta soup. (had it last night again, and it was a little floury). Mozz + Tomato + Pesto Panini.

          Will try caplansky's club, sounds yummy.

            Speaking of Negroni, I can't believe I almost forgot their peanut butter gelato.

              Another one: salad from Lee served at Brickworks -- it has jicama and crunchy noodles.
