On Wednesday, April 11, 2012, GBTA Canada's 2-day, 2012 conference begins in Toronto. Cvent is a conference sponsor. I'm attending and I'll be filing reports. Since we focus on event venues every Wednesday, I thought it would be appropriate to profile Spice Route, the Bistro Bar with an Asian flavor the event venue for the opening dinner sponsored by WestJet/oneworld.
Spice Route is part of Nick Di Donato's Liberty Entertainment Group that manages the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex at Exhibition Place, the Rosewater Supper Club, the Court House, and other fashionable Miami and Toronto event venues that are frequented by A-list celebrities.
Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Spice Route is a comfortable walk from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the CN Tower, Roger's Centre, and a number of Toronto downtown hotels.
Spice Route is known for its dramatic decor, distinctive patio and mesmerizing music. Spice Route, which has a capacity of 500 for receptions, can be reserved for special events, private dining, and dinners during Toronto conferences. The main dining room can cater to 200 guests. Small groups can be accommodated in the Buddha Lounge and Karma Room.
Winlai Wong, Spice Route's executive chef, has used her extensive knowledge of Chinese, Indian, and Thai cuisine to fashion a menu that is an eclectic blend of Asian cultural influences. Authentic Indo-Chinese cuisine has been designed to be paired with Spice Route's hot and cold spiked teas.
Starters include sharing plates such as Indian spiced dips and naan, sushi handrolls and Thai crab cakes. Soups, salads, rice and noodles reflect influences from Singapore, Thailand, China and India. Signature poultry dishes include Kung Pao Chicken, Beijing Peking Duck and Lemon Glazed Chicken with crispy wonton. Seafood and meat entrees include a spicy Indian curried tiger prawn claypot, Mongolian sirloin beef and miso glazed black cod.
Weekly special events calendar features LunDin, Sunday evening's 15 course, all you can eat menu that is affordably priced at under $30 Canadian. Happy Buddha, the Thursday happy hour, spotlights drink specials and complimentary noodle boxes.
