Downtown Toronto Restaurant Brings Award-Winning Fare to Foodie Festival

Trios Bistro, a Marriott Restaurant, Demonstrates Its Signature Culinary Creativity in Its Summerlicious Menu

TORONTO--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2013) - In a city like Toronto, there are many tours and events that celebrate creativity, but none taste quite so good as Summerlicious. From July 5 to 21, 2013, 196 of Toronto's finest restaurants develop three-course prix fixe menus. Chief among these is the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel's own Trios Bistro.

Helmed by award-winning Executive Chef Morgan Wilson, Trios Bistro has established a reputation for locally inspired cuisine that is at once technically precise and passionately creative. Morgan has extended this reputation to his Summerlicious menus for lunch and dinner. The $35 CAD dinner options, for example, feature local and vegetarian items like heirloom tomato gazpacho and linguine vert alongside Korean kalbi beef ribs. Lunch options ($20 CAD) follow suit with choices like a Mexican-style pork sandwich, pan-seared rainbow trout and organic golden beet soup. Saving the best for last, Trios Bistro offers dessert choices ranging from flourless chocolate cake, to butterscotch pudding, to triple-cream brie.

Foodies don't have to live in Toronto, however, to sample Trios Bistro's tempting menu. The Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel has developed one sweet deal in its Summerlicious Dining package, which includes a Summerlicious dinner for two at Trios Bistro, a deluxe guestroom and complimentary late checkout. But there are other great deals to be had as well in which visitors can experience one side of Toronto and book a Summerlicious meal on the side. Those who appreciate the thrill of the retail hunt, for instance, might try the Shop 'til You Drop package (replete with a $25 gift card to the Eaton Centre) and stop for a Summerlicious lunch in between stores. And this gay-friendly hotel's "Out" in Canada package provides a comprehensive gay/lesbian guide to the city, among other amenities, for couples who can enjoy a Summerlicious dinner after a day of sightseeing.

With a location in the heart of the city, the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre puts its guests in the middle of the action. An indoor walkway connects the hotel to shopping at the Toronto Eaton Centre, while the theatre district, financial district and the perennially bustling Yonge-Dundas Square (with free concerts and films all summer long) are all within walking distance. In fact, there's not much in Toronto that guests can't access from this prime perch -- and that's a fact worth savouring all on its own.

Trios Bistro began accepting Summerlicious reservations on June 20, 2013. Learn more about the restaurant at

Take, for example, the hotel's convenient indoor walkway to the city's premier shopping mall, Toronto Eaton Centre.

This is one hotel where sightseeing is practically integrated into the guestrooms. One event for which guests don't need to leave, however, is mealtime. The hotel's award-winning Trios Bistro takes visitors on a culinary adventure through the Northwest and beyond. A new lobby welcomes travellers in style before they return to their luxurious guestrooms, which boast 50-percent more space than typical rooms, as well as plush featherbeds, designer duvets, high-speed Internet access and plug-in panels for easy connectivity.

There's nothing quite like a bird's-eye view -- except, perhaps, experiencing it firsthand within this premier Toronto property.
