The arrival of September in Toronto doesn’t just usher in shorter days and a back-to-reality mentality. With the Toronto International Film Festival, or TIFF, comes the perfect opportunity to wine, dine and hob-nob with some of the world’s brightest stars. Find yourself at Chotto Matte and bask in some star-gazing alongside a chic new menu of dishes tailor-made to match the glamour and glitz of the season.
Chotto Matte’s stylish and urban vibe, gorgeous patio and bold Japanese-Peruvian Nikkei cuisine are a natural draw for those looking to see and be seen, especially during TIFF. This year’s novel menu of high-end delights are just the thing to nibble as A-listers revel.
Beginning on Sept. 9, you’ll find three new dishes joining Chotto Matte’s regular rotation. For a performance guaranteed to turn heads, opt for Wagyu Aburi or O-Toro Aburi flamed tableside. Wagyu Aburi, presented sashimi or nigiri-style, includes A5 Japanese sirloin topped with foie gras and Chotto soy. The O-Toro Aburi finds premium tuna belly topped with foie gras and lime soy. Also debuting during TIFF are Wagyu beef gyoza, served with teriyaki veal jus and wasabi stem.
A list of celeb-worthy cocktails pair perfectly with every bite. For a cocktail with a dramatic side, the He’s So Smoking or She’s So Smoking can’t be beat. In the former, Mezcal Verde Momento is mixed with peach, ginger, lapsang, yuzu, shiso and smoke. Opt for the She’s So Smoking and Martell VS Cognac replaces the Mezcal Verde Momento. The signature Nikkei Negroni, with Plymouth Gin, Campari, Cocchi Storico Vermouth di Torino, genmaicha tea and aji amarillo, is a bracing take on the classic.
This September, escape into the magic of the movies during TIFF. Whether you're channeling your inner paparazzo or fancy yourself a star, just be sure to energize your days with tipples and tastes worthy of the silver screen.
