Windsor Arms Vegan Food – In Pictures

We’ve gone to the Windsor Arms (18 Saint Thomas Street – Toronto, Ontario) twice so far, once for brunch a month or so ago, and once for dinner. Brunch was much easier to photograph, unfortunately dinner had a bit too much mood lighting to be conducive to pretty pictures.

I think it’s worth going to the Windsor Arms at least once (or twice), if not for the food, then the general dining experience, especially since vegan fine dining experiences can be few and far between depending on where you live.

The vegan options at the Windsor arms were developed by Doug McNish, (www.dougmcnish.com) Toronto’s vegan chef extraordinaire. He will soon be releasing a vegan, raw food cookbook called Eat Raw, Eat Well at EcoExistance (766 St. Clair Avenue West at Arlington, Toronto) on Saturday March 31st, go here for more info.

I’m looking forward to it, since the title makes me reminisce about the first meal I had from Chef Doug, when he was still at Raw Aura (in Mississauga). Raw lasagna. Yes.
