Last night, a small group of us treated ourselves to a fancy dinner at Susur before the world-famous chef closed down his Toronto restaurant for good. Cornish hen, bison loin, smoked squab, braised morel, organic strawberry sorbet, and a whole host of other samplings that I not only would never have thought of putting together, but had never even known existed.
The meal was fantastic. Of the 8-course feast, only one of the items on the dim sum dessert wasn't a salivating experience.
Then I saw the bill, and was glad that this was a one-time venture.
