Blog :: Winterlicious at The Fifth Grill & Terrace

Hello Everyone!

For those of you who live in Toronto, you probably heard of the infamous fine dining event called Winterlicious (also known as Summerlicious in the summer). For those of you whom the term is new, it's basically a period of time, twice a year, where fine dining restaurants typically have a slow business flow - but are counteracting the slow business by luring in customers with a prix fixe menu for lunch and dinner! I would say 95% off the top restaurants in the GTA take part in this event, allowing for everyone to try dishes that would normally cost them way more! Prices go up to $15-$25 for lunch and $35-$45 for dinner. It is typical that the prix fixe menu includes a minimum of three dishes, appetizer entree and dessert, however some restaurants may include more.

This week, my friends and I went to the Fifth Gril & Terrace. It's a small upscale restaurant that is located on the rooftop of an old warehouse in the heart of downtown Toronto that is a perfect fusion of French and classic steakhouse cuisine. It's only accessible by a private lift which is also ornately decorated to add to that extra exclusivity factor.

Below is actually a nightclub (called the Fifth) but I've never attended a party there - but my friend is there as I type my blog! I am anxiously awaiting to hear the juicy stories she has to tell!

Anyways, my friend & I got ready at my flat and managed to take our traditional typical crazy silly girly pictures prior to meeting up with the boys. Unfortunately, my fringe was rebelling against me - in preparation for "next time" can anyone tell me how they fix their bangs when it won't behave? It would be much appreciated!

And here's some photos at the restaurant!

Unfortunately, we didn't take anymore pictures, which is atypical of my shutterbug nature, but I didn't want to seem so "touristy" in such a posh place! However, if you are curious to see what we ate stay tuned on my food blog!

Thanks for reading!!!

  1. I have that top in the champagne colour! but when I wear it, the front just hangs out and shows my entire bra. Can I ask what size you got it in? And did you stick tape to hold it up? Thank youu <3

  2. LMFAOOO!! Tran is so posy!!! xD ahahaha! you guys are adorable!

  3. @Tulip :: The champagne colour is really pretty too ^-^ !!! I got a xs, a size down from my regular size (s) and I used tape to keep my bra covered :p [I didn't have double sided tape so i just used regular scotch tape looped up! hahahaha)! I hope this helps ! I find when you make the back longer, it also holds the shirt up better too so some tape on the back side and the top of the straps might help too!


Thank you so much for reading my post! I'd love to hear what you say! Don't forget to check back to see my response if you ask any questions!
