Tables lined the large display room at Lexus South Pointe, with readers of Avenue indulging in samples from our annual 25 Best Things to Eat list. More than 250 guests tried items, including pecorino cheese from The Cheesiry, peppermint ambrosia by The Chocolate Doctors and lobster and potato lasagna from Holt’s Cafe, during the July 4 unveiling of our summer food issue.
The party had an open bar with wine provided by Liquid Harvest Fine Wine, Spirits & Ales and both restaurateurs and readers mingled, enjoying the foods featured in the issue. “What an honour,” says Jessica Rosychuk, co-owner of The Chocolate Doctors. “Thanks to Avenue for including us on such an elite list.”
