I read about Divino Wine bar in a food blog and have always wanted to try it. My friend and I each had the 4 course tasting menu and the food was absolutely amazing. The tasting menu was 4 courses prepared for you by the chef and its a surprise! I've always loved the concept so you don't have to think about ordering and just trust the chef. After a long work day my friend and I didn't want to make any decisions so we asked the manager Ian to suggest a wine pairing for each of our 4 courses. The wines were also amazing and they use beautiful Riedel wine glasses ;)
Our first course was a lovely tuna crudo paired with grapefruit and radish. Absolutely refreshing and light and a great way to start your palette.
Second dish was a black trumpet mushroom and kale risotto. It was absolutely divine!! I love kale and the heartiness of the vegetable was a good pairing with the earthy trumpet mushrooms. Risotto was cooked to perfection as well.
Third course was duck breast with celeriac purée and a sauce made with black squid ink and black truffle. The sauce was to die for! The duck breast was cooked to medium well which was a little over done to our liking. I guess if you were to order it a-la-carte you would have the option to specify how you want it done. Nonetheless the dish was still very very tasty.
Fourth course was a silky chocolate mousse with hazelnut ice cream. Again, perfect dessert to end a wondering tasting menu.
Divino wine bar is a hidden gem and I would definitely recommend anyone to go there. It has amazing food and wine and you don't have to worry about going all the way downtown for a nice meal. It's one of the best restaurants I've been to in a very long time.
