We walked into the dimly lit Brant House on a beautiful Thursday evening and our ears were filled with the sounds of Mexican bolero and mariachi music. The venue that is usually decked out with disco balls, top 40 and jagerbombs was now full of long communal tables ready for a Latin inspired feast.
We came to one of Brant House’s special celebrity chef dinner series to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in style with an amazing host, Top Chef Canada contestant and Toronto culinary guru – Steve Gonzalez.
There were two signature cocktails being served when we arrived at our table, the classic margarita (I mean, you can’t go wrong with that one) and a version of an Old Fashion that was mixed with Tequila instead of Bourbon. I happily ordered the latter and got into the spirit by putting on the sombrero that was hanging on the back of my chair. OLE!
