Social dining is getting saltier, as Dishcrawl presents four dinners focused on that most beloved of cured meats: bacon. In a modification of Dishcrawl’s modus operandi, which typically takes groups of diners to four separate restaurants in one night, this month’s “crawls” are, in fact, staying put, with individual restaurants offering up full four- and five-course meals ($80 per diner) featuring inspired preparations of our favourite pork product.
So who can create the best bacon dishes in Toronto? Chef Scott Vivian of Beast throws down the greasy gauntlet on July 5; dinners at Leslieville’s Le Canard Mort (July 10), The Good Fork (July 11) and Blue Plate (July 17) follow.
If you prefer to embark on a traditional multi-restaurant excursion, Dishcrawl showcases fine fare in Rosedale on July 18, and heads north to Markham on July 25.
