Summerlicious menus are out! Colborne Lane added this year!
Among the same restaurants year after year, I noticed that Colborne Lane's been added as one of the restaurants - I'm excited since I've heard many great reviews (in terms of their tasting menu).
I wonder if their prix fixe menu will be just as good?
Summericious discussion for this year has started in this thread:
Hoping not many people would notice Colborne Lane was added until I got my reservation in :
)Curious how it would be too... Could be a huge disappointment but I hope they utilize it to the max to promote the restaurant and potentially bring in future business/word of mouth.
Guess they needed the participation to bring in more business since their Toronto Life rating has dropped from 3.5* to a low 1.5*!!
It might not mean much to us chowhounders but to some other foodies, this demotion might be a 'warning flag' to stay away!!
When I was living in France, I did notice people tend to stay away from restaurants that loses one or more of their Michelin stars!!

On the other hand, that makes them easier to get into.
I recall a Michelin 1* in Auch - formerly a 2* that was showing its age (damask drapes etc) - the wine list was a rolodesk. And still one of the greatest meals of my life (subsequently the chef retired).
I'm still not sure what Toronto Life's ratings mean - my system is certainly incompatible with theirs!
Pity there's no lunch at Colborne Lane.
$45 is a bit steep for what they are offering, maybe $35 is more reasonable. Nothing really excites me, the desserts are meh.I need a cheese platter option.
