If you are looking for a fantastic deal and experience during WinterBites, you should definitely add Black Kettle Bistro to your restaurants to visit before the week’s end.

Sean and I headed downtown last night to take part in Black Kettle Bistro’s music series where we were treated to a great show by Adam Rideout-Arkell. Owner, Rino Bortolin, came up with the really creative idea of pairing great food and local music. And let me tell you his Winter Bites menu cannot be missed. If you haven’t gone there already….go now!!

Ravioli and Manicotti

We pretty much ordered the entire Winter Bites Menu. Our first course was ravioli filled with ricotta and topped sautéed mushrooms and peas in a garlic sauce. We also had sweet potato filled manicotti that were baked in a garlic cream sauce. The manicotti…..amazing. Highly recommend ordering this dish. The sweet potatoes were just so flavourful.

Our second course was Morrocan style chickpea stew and Lamb stew, both dishes on a bed of baked herbed polenta. And for dessert, Rino totally went the extra mile. Homemade, organic cinnamon icecream overtop a warm organic apple crumble.

If you follow us on Twitter and Facebook, you may have seen these photos already as I was tweeting my way through the entire meal. A three course dinner with live music for only $25. You can’t beat that.

If you missed the shows earlier this week, you can still catch great food and live local music. The Black Kettle Bistro music series continues for the rest of the week including tonite!

When you purchase the $25 BKB menu $5 will automatically go to the artist and if you choose the $35 BKB menu (which is the same as the $25) then $15 will go to the artist and you will receive a signed copy of their CD or a special limited addition print signed by the artist.

    So run! Hurray! Get to Black Kettle Bistro before it’s all over!
